The Town Hall Zoom Meeting

The El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association (Boulevard BIA) hosted a Virtual Town Hall on Thursday, April 8 to engage with the community’s business owners and residents about applying the Blvd. 20/20 Plan and Complete Community Plans in the District’s Central Hub, which runs along El Cajon Boulevard between the 805 and 15 freeways. It was the third in a series of Town Hall events the Boulevard BIA is holding to seek input from community members. This event will focus on three main topics: (1) transportation (including making the pilot program for the dedicated bus lane permanent), development (including accessory dwelling units, or ADUs), and (3)
business recruitment.

The Blvd. 20/20 Plan envisions El Cajon Boulevard as a model for successful transit-oriented communities in
San Diego. In recent years, the Boulevard BIA has been engaging with the community on topics such as
neighborhood amenities, affordability, accessibility, cultural enhancement and urban living.
The first Town Hall was held in June 2018, in collaboration with the Housing You Matters Coalition, and focused
on the subject of developing housing for all income levels within the community. The second Town Hall, held in
December 2019, focused on mobility and culminated in the successful launch of a new dedicated bus rapid
transit (BRT) lane along a 2.7-mile stretch of El Cajon Boulevard between Park Boulevard and Fairmount
