Community workshops set for traffic-calming efforts


The Encinitas Environmental Education (E3) Cluster, a group of neighborhood organizations, has coordinated two community workshops for neighbors to fully participate and work with traffic experts to develop a comprehensive traffic calming plan.

The planning efforts are for the entire stretch of Saxony Road and Quail Gardens Drive between Encinitas Boulevard and Leucadia Boulevard. Participation from neighbors who are directly affected by traffic issues in this neighborhood is especially important.

“E3 has retained Fehr and Peers Transportation Consulting to facilitate workshops designed to engage neighbors with traffic calming issues, and capture their solutions and input for the plan. The Traffic Calming Plan will ultimately be presented to the City of Encinitas Traffic and Public Safety Commission and the City Council for their consideration this summer,” according to Marjorie Fox, E3 director.

Neighbors and community members interested creating calmer and safer roads in the community are asked to please RSVP to for the following workshops:

• 7 -8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 14. Community workshop for neighbors living on or near Saxony Road will be held at Seacrest Village Retirement Communities, 211 Saxony Road.

• 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 16. Community workshop for neighbors living on or near Quail Gardens Drive will be held in the Ecke Building at San Diego Botanic Garden, 230 Quail Gardens Drive.
