Investment in Our Neighborhoods

Too often, low-income communities are left without basic infrastructure and safety improvements like stop signs, lights, and sidewalks. ACCE members in all of our San Diego chapters have successfully fought and won improvements in their neighborhoods from community cleanups, to street resurfacing. With the passage of Prop P to improve infrastructure in Chula Vista, a citizens oversight committee was formed to ensure that infrastructure improvement projects are being done in the communities with the most need. In National City, ACCE members successfully fought for the city’s Shared Streets Pilot Program, which implemented traffic calming measures ensuring the community would have safe spaces to walk and play.
