Explain your project in details:

The Park-to-Bay project aims to inspire, heal and empower the community to become more resilient. The projects main goal is to make people fall in love with their city by creating connections between the person, community, nature, art, history, culture, and tradition. The project is a green corridor with a linear park. The two-aisle trees, linear park, will decrease pollution, encourage walkability and promote safe cycling. It aims to create the best environment for healthy sustainable living that positively changes San Diego's image. The Park-to-Bay project will link Balboa Park to the San Diego Bay through 25th Street and Cesar E. Chavez Parkway spanning 2.1 miles. It reunites 3 underserved communities that were divided by freeways (Golden Hill, SouthEastern San Diego, and Barrio Logan). It also connects four main parks together (Balboa Park, Grant Hill Park, Chicano Park, Cesar E Chavez Park). The project creates a continuous park link system in the city. The Park-to-Bay project tackles urban discrimination in terms of green, social and transportation injustice; especially in underserved communities. The Park-to-Bay project expected outcomes and impacts are far more than imagination. Economically, the project fosters job creation, real estate appreciation, promotes innovators and entrepreneurship, flourishes tourism and reduces the economic burden of chronic disease. Socially, the project fosters social cohesion and builds more vibrant, healthy, sustainable, and inclusive communities where all people can engage in decision-making that affects their day-to-day lives. Environmentally, the project decreases the carbon footprint by planting more than 3000 trees. It encourages people to walk and cycle thus depend less on vehicles. The projects adopt innovation in terms of green energy, water reuse, recycle and reclaim.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

The Park-to-Bay project plans for the needs of present and future generations. In order to establish a balanced relationship between social, technology and nature. The project understands that everything is connected and pushes the limits to integrate nature in low-income communities. In addition, the project focus on the human experience. Thinking more about how would people feel? How would they use their senses? How do they get engaged? Will they find their needs (food, drinks, and restrooms) Can they wait for the trolley in a dignifying way? To transform the city, one must experience a paradigm shift. A shift that heals and secure our plant and people. Ensuring that everyone fulfilling their potential in dignity, equity and a healthy environment. In order to build a better world, the Park-to-Bay is determined to provide green, social, economic and transportation equity. The Park-to-Bay project is still in the connection stage. We are trying to connect stakeholders and community members. Connecting people is a challenge and it takes time to mature. We have an advisory team that includes a selected team of mentors with different expertise. The advisory board main role is to ensure that the project gets to implement 10 goals of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The second team is a Volunteer Team (V-Team). V-Team is a mixed and diverse group of professional and students from both the University of San Diego and the University of California in San Diego. Our V-Team role is to utilize professors connections and unite three or more schools on implementing the project. Both teams form the foundation of the project. In order to implement this project, all stakeholders, city officials and community members will unite and create a unified vision that gets implemented. Collaboration and partnership are the foundation of the Park-to-Bay Project.

Sustainability and future plans

TNTV business model is divided into 9 parts the first three parts are identifying key partners, activities, and resources. In addition, TNTV is investigating the value proposition, cost structure, channels, and revenue streams. It also focuses on customer relationship and segments. TNTV is addressing the community needs and our doors are open to listening to community ideas and feedback. Financially, TNTV accepts donations and is applying for several cities, state, federal and non-governmental grants. We depend on words of mouth, mailing list, and social media to get our support. The project is so flexible and easy to add sustainable innovation like solar roads, kinetic sidewalks and more. The opportunities are limitless and it's time to start doing something. TNTV understands that the project will cost a lot of money that the nonprofit organization doesn't have but the community will pay more if TNTV doesn't help in terms of health, environment, social and economic issues. The plan is bold and expensive but if we don't do it now, it will cost more, later. The Park-to-Bay Project will implement 10 goals from the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. It starts by eradicating poverty. The project takes bold and transformative steps to fight for human rights for underserved communities. By passing through three low-income communities that are isolated and struggling to survive. San Diego is considered Americas finest city. However, 65% of the people living around the corridor are in poverty. Is it clear who is struggling and how? The struggle is real and no matter how one dresses, he/she can still be struggling to live. When more than 44% of the poverty in San Diego are either Latino, Hispanic or Black, African American, actions need to be taken.

Creative approach to building community space within low income neighborhoods. The Park to Bay project demonstrates that low income urban doesn't just have to look like concrete and cars. This video shows how various green spaces, and community gathering places can be woven together into a synergistic whole. I particularly like the graphics which depict a sweeping overview of the various spots from the Park to the Bay where people can gather and share within their own communities.
