Realign Pullman Avenue extension between 1 Avenue and the railroad tracks (to align with 20th Street) and eliminate 19th Street between 1 Avenue and Vista Park Drive (Communications Hill Boulevard). 7.

There are five proposed General Plan text amendments and eleven Communications Hill Specific Plan text amendments that correspond to the above land use changes.
