MJE developed and implemented a comprehensive Public Involvement Plan to support the approval of the Mid-Coast Trolley, and extension of the Trolley Blue Line from Old Town Transit Center to UC San Diego and University City. MJE developed a brand for the project and all project materials; engaged stakeholders through public workshops, presentations, and a Project Working Group; supported SANDAG’s media relations efforts; and coordinated with stakeholders to participate in public hearings. The project was unanimously approved by the Federal Transit Administration and the SANDAG Board of Directors in Fall 2014. MJE continues to provide communications and outreach services for the project as it enters construction this fall.
