Meetings target transportation, parks

   San Diego County Association of Government (SANDAG) representatives will be in town to discuss transportation needs of low-income, disabled and elderly residents on July 1.

   On July 8, San Diego County Department of Parks and Recreation will be here to talk about what kind of county parks residents want.

   Both meetings are part of public sessions the agencies are holding throughout the county to discuss the topics.

   SANDAG’s meeting will be from 1 to 4:30 p.m., with the first hour and a half devoted to grant opportunities for organizations interested in filling transportation needs. During the second portion, results of recent social services transportation survey will be discussed and the public will be asked to provide feedback.

   A Caltrans representative is also expected to attend.

   “This is a golden opportunity for Ramona transportation stakeholders to show SANDAG and Caltrans that we are engaged and ready to work with them toward solutions,” said Ramona resident LaVonna Connelly, coordinator of the Ramona Transportation Action Committee.

   Regarding parks, the county has hired a consultant to determine what kinds of park and recreation will be offered in unincorporated communities and what kinds of fees could support them.

   Getting community input is essential, said County Parks and Recreation Director Brian Albright.

   Refreshments will be provided. People who want to attend should RSVP by calling or e-mailing Sabrina Powell at 858-966-1303 or Sabrina.powell@sdcounty.ca.gov.
