Little Italy Residents Association (LIRA) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping residents of the downtown San Diego neighborhood of Little Italy. With many new families relocating to downtown, we offer the opportunity through our organization for residents to get involved with local events, give input on new civic projects, and best of all, to meet their neighbors. With the commitment from the citizens of our community we can continue to create a more friendly, safe, diverse community.

For over a year, we have been engaged in opposing SANDAG's Bus Rapid Transit Plan for Downtown San Diego, which includes building a giant bus lot in one of our area neighborhoods. Our position is emphatic: "Bus lots belong in industrial areas, not in any neighborhood area of Downtown San Diego." 

We have been active at every level in opposition: Community meetings, e-mail campaigns, a petition drive, press conference with Kevin Faulconer, television, radio and newspaper coverage and face-to-face presentations at meetings with SANDAG's Planning Committee, Transportation Members and Board of Directors. Now we are providing personalized walking tours for the Transportation and Board Members to better acquaint them with our Little Italy, Columbia, Core Community, since at some point they will vote on BRT Plan. It is imperative they clearly understand what is at stake for all of us.
