Hillcrest Streetcar Proposals

The Hillcrest Farmers Market welcomed a group of UCSD Urban Studies students this past Sunday in order to hear proposals of bringing a streetcar to the Hillcrest area. With their presentation set up along the walkway in front of the information booth plenty of market patrons stopped to hear about what a streetcar could bring to the the neighborhood. Alleviating traffic and parking issues, allowing for a convenient way to reach downtown, and adding some interest to the area were all cited as some reasons why a streetcar could be beneficial to Hillcrest.

While parents looked at the students' research, children were able to create pictures and drawings of what they thought the streetcar design should look like.
