About the Talk

There is a place where many aspects of San Diego’s outdoor culture converge. However, in this place of convergence, there exists a divide. Through our story, we hope to expose this divide and inspire a connection. We'll begin with a video, highlighting the culture of the site and documenting the beginnings of an idea. It presents the efforts of a group of engineers, architects, planners and community members as we explore the benefits and pitfalls of a pedestrian and bicycle bridge system linking north Ocean Beach to south Mission Beach. Along with our video, we host a live Q&A session to hear the community's input and feedback on our discussion.


This talk was presented live September 9, 2020.
