To Re-invision Downtown, Planners Take Their Ideas Into the Street


A portion of Ocean Avenue will undergo a transformation Saturday, Nov. 15, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. with examples of mini parks, curb extensions for pedestrians and seating areas.

The so-called pop-up downtown serves as a way of soliciting public feedback on city planner’s efforts to revise the Downtown Specific Plan, the blueprint for development between Cliff Drive and Legion Street.

Topics will also include street and intersection treatments, open space improvements, visualizing building heights and brainstorming improvements for parking areas, said Community Development Director Greg Pfost.

One of the city’s trolleys will also undergo a transformation, serving as a roving “Plan Trolley” equipped with interactive displays and staffed by consultants on the Downtown Specific Plan, which will roll up to key events such as this Friday’s home football game, on Hospitality Night Dec. 5, and during the Sawdust Art Festival’s Winter Fantasy, which begins Nov. 22.
