Another Earth Day has come and gone, but we can see that San Diego’s enthusiasm for protecting our environment continues to grow stronger and stronger. We have faith that this enthusiasm will help carry our city into the future as a leader in forward-thinking environmental policy. Thanks to all those citizens, organizations, and companies on the front lines of this fight— we had a blast celebrating with you on the 21st! You can check out some photos from the event up above.
We were also very excited to have Mayor Bob Filner stop by Class 1 streetcar #138 and say a few words about returning these San Diego historic landmarks to the rails. Of course, we still need your vocal support to make this dream a reality. There is no other project available to San Diego today that represents such a significant benefit for our city on a whole. From the potential boon to tourism, the creation of jobs, the boost to private investment and redevelopment, and of course the expansion of practical, charming public transit in a way that supports pedestrian culture and brings more customers to local businesses along the route, restoring these streetcars should be a no-brainer.
