City to get community input at pop-up workshop


The city of Encinitas is seeking public input at the last of five pop-up workshops, this one set for Saturday, Oct. 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Just Peachy, 1254 N. Coast Highway 101.

The workshop is part of the city’s Coastal Mobility and Livability Study, and is designed for the community to give input on the improvements that are needed to make it easier and safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and others to get around Encinitas. The public is invited to stop by the informal workshop at any time for a five-minute discussion, and kids are welcome.

Encinitas’ Coastal Mobility and Livability Study is examining how people travel within the city, what types of changes are needed and how the corridor can be more livable — for example, how to quiet train noise and enhance community character.

“Engaging the community is critical to the success of Coastal Mobility and Livability Study,” Encinitas’ Acting Planning Director Manjeet Ranu said in a news release. “We want to hear from and talk with everyone that is interested in the future of the City.”

According to the release, public input will be used to inform development of draft concepts, which will be presented for public feedback in another round of workshops in early 2017. Community members unable to make the pop-up workshop are encouraged to voice their opinion and provide input via the Coastal Mobility & Livability Study PlaceSpeak topic discussion.
