Civita and Serra Mesa Communities Trying to Save Lives
We’re a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing pedestrian fatalities.

 The City Council approved a 4-lane, 55-mph freeway connector allowing 34,000 cars a day through half-mile stretches of road with No Crosswalks in Civita, a dense residential community in Mission Valley.

Via Alta and Franklin Ridge are permanently flawed. Because of the steep slope and curves of the roads, crosswalks or traffic calming will never be installed.

If the speedway connector is completed, lives will be at risk. Because of the permanent flaws, these roadway segments are “unsafe at any speed”.


The City, politicians, and large developers in Mission Valley argue this sacrifice needs to be made for the “Greater Good,” stating the rest of the City will benefit from the connector by allowing more homes to be built in Mission Valley, a flow of regional traffic between I-805 and Mission Valley’s Friars Road, and a GPS short cut for commuters.

Why we are going to court
“Save Civita Because Sudberry Won’t” filed a lawsuit on Nov. 17, 2017, in San Diego County Superior Court.

The lawsuit was filed based on the belief that the connector project does not comply with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the City of San Diego General Plan, and all applicable laws, for example, the Planning and Zoning Laws (“PZL”).

Also, the roadway segments were not designed in accordance with walkable, mixed-use, industry-standard practices for accommodation of pedestrians and regional freeway traffic and is not compliant with the City’s Council Policy 200-07 and the City’s street design manual.

The goal of the lawsuit is to stop the construction of the 4-lane freeway connector and in doing so prevent pedestrian fatalities.

I just recently bought into Civita, nothing was said about this plan by my Realtor or sales person, I would have had reservations on buying this townhouse as the road runs right above my backyard. The slant could bring a car right into my yard if there was a mishap on the road above, as it did at the dog park recently. People already go too fast up and down Via Alta, it would definitely not be conducive to the peace and quite we have now. The pollution and the danger to walking, it will also not be safe for the children going to school. Sudberry is neutral because the traffic funneled into their retail would only behoove them.

I live in the community and feel it would be unsafe to have that much traffic on Via Alta.
