New Stop Sign On India Street (at Chalmers) Calms Traffic Going Into Five Points Business District
Five Points business leaders and local residents, supported by the Uptown Community Parking District, succeeded in their effort to have a stop sign installed on India Street, at the intersection with Chalmers Street. The new stop sign prevents drivers from speeding north on India Street through the Five Points business district, creating a threat to public safety.
Uptown Planners voted to approve placement of the stop sign on April 3, 2018; under a special city policy (City Council Policy 200-08) if a community planning group passes a motion supporting the placement of a stop sign, the local city councilmember then has the power to request the stop sign be installed. City Councilmember Chris Ward did so by a letter dated June 8, 2018. Special thanks go to Jennifer Pesqueira, of El Indio Restaurant, who as a member of Uptown Planners guided the approval of stop sign through the Uptown community planning group process. Pesqueira is also Vice-President of the Metro San Diego CDC.
