    Dear San Diego MTS,

    No offense, but this Balboa Station plan is god awful. Ok, after all the people who drive to that station get on the train, filling one train, what then? Their cars sit on some super expensive land for the rest of the day? NO! This is the 21st goddamn century. Why are we still building transit like we did in the 60s? Build TOD! Shrink roads, build bus connections, add mid/high rises (not just around the station, but for up to a mile). This is frankly ridiculous.

    I know we can do better

    Please change the entire stretch of Morena Blvd in the plan to a 2-lane corridor, or at most a 3-lane corridor. I live in the neighborhood and cars drive incredibly fast on that road (in excess of 60 MPH). The current 4-lane major road enables this speeding and greatly discourages both pedestrian and bicycle use along Morena. Changing Morena to a 2-lane corridor would best promote alternative transportation and pedestrian use of Morena to the trolley station.

    Also, there is no need for Morena to be a 4-lane major road. It runs through a primarily residential neighborhood, with the exception of Costco and a handful of light industrial stores. But I hardly think these stores create enough traffic to merit a 4-lane road… In my experience, it appears that Morena Blvd is inappropriately used to bypass traffic on the 5 south in the afternoon. I think the City should strongly discourage this driving behavior and the most effective way to do this is to change Morena Blvd to a 2-lane corridor.

    Thank you.
