One of the City Council priority projects is to enhance the Downtown Streetscape.
The community outreach process for the Downtown Streetscape project is underway! The improvements will be along Camino Del Mar from 9th Street to 15th Street, with construction slated to begin in Spring 2018.
As of February 20th, City Council has approved plans for the Downtown Streetscape Project and identified the first phase of the Project. Phase 1 will include Camino del Mar from 9th Street to 11th Street (including the northern curb corners on 11th Street). The City will now move forward with the bidding process with construction to begin this Spring.

Thank you to everyone who gave your feedback on the Downtown Streetscape project using our feedback questionaire! A feedback questionaire was shared on the Downtown Streetscape webpage in late July to be filled out as a supplement to the project consultant's design concepts presentation from the July 27 Community Workshop. Responses were collected and used to identify citizen concerns and recommendations for the project.
In June, the City hosted a series of meetings to gather feedback regarding the project. City staff along with the project consultant met with business and property owners, as well as the general public to hear comments.
