Transportation officials are hosting a meeting to understand needs and challenges of mobility in East County.

The closest trolley station from the center of Spring Valley is 14 miles to the Lemon Grove Depot. With that in mind, the county of San Diego is holding a Community Transportation Workshop for Spring Valley and La Presa residents focusing on the current and future transportation needs, and how current options could be improved.

This workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15 at the Spring Valley Library, 836 Kempton St.

This workshop is part of the county’s assessment in understanding how residents in Spring Valley and La Presa travel within the community, and the challenges they face. The purpose of the workshop is to engage and learn from community members in under-resourced communities to help identify reliable transportation options to help overcome these challenges. The needs assessment will help identify safe, reliable, convenient, and affordable clean transportation options for the community, such as zero-emission carpooling/vanpooling, bike-sharing/scooter-sharing, innovative transit services, and ride-on-demand services.

Awarded by the Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program, the county will receive $49,515 to conduct a Community Transportation Needs Assessment to understand community transportation needs in La Presa, located in the Spring Valley Community Planning Area. The Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in under-resourced communities.

Interested community members are encouraged to take an online survey the help in identifying transportation needs and barriers in under-resourced communities.
