Come to the last MEGA meeting of the year!
This is an invitation to join with the Complete Streets Coalition at our next Complete Streets rally on Thursday, Dec 3rd, from 4:00 to 5:30m pm at the Elm St. Crossover near Comensoli's Just north of West Main. We will inform motorists and the general public with signs, leaflets, petitions and a press conference about our goal to get MDOT and the City to start the process to fix the main streets downtown which will reduce/eliminate cut through traffic in neighborhoods. Studies and projects across the state and country have shown when our downtown and neighborhood streets are made safe, convenient and accessible for all users the economy improves, there are less accidents, the level of the community's health improves, children can walk/bicycle to school safely and the livability and vitality of the community is enhanced and restored. Your presence at this rally will show will show MDOT and the City that support for safe, accessible and convenient streets for all users is a community wide issue of equity, safety and livability that needs to be addressed. Please pass this on to others.
Members, Friends, Guests. Anyone interested in having a great time while raising funds to protect the environment. Beer, wine, soft drinks and coffee will be provided as well as a main course. Members please bring a dish or dessert, an item to be auctioned, and/or your checkbook to purchase some great items! Checks preferred for purchase of auction items.
Steering Committee meeting. The Steering Committee is responsible for the operations of Sierra Club San Diego. Members are always welcome.

Evening conditioning hikes range from moderate to very strenuous over hilly, sometimes steep terrain with uneven footing. Hikes are intended only for hikers capable of maintaining the pace as set by leaders. Leashed, well-behaved dogs welcome at the discretion of each leader. Hikes last from 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours. Meet at the Griffith Park upper merry-go-round parking lot #2. The hikes start at 7PM sharp. Come early to complete waiver form. (Participants must sign the waiver and must have waiver card with them on hikes.) Sturdy hiking shoes or boots strongly encouraged. Flashlights are optional; a colored filter is recommended to avoid blinding other participants.
