Document Description
The Maple Street Pedestrian Corridor Master Plan is a master plan providing a framework for the future development of pedestrian amenities and sidewalk enhancement along Maple Street, within the existing public right-of-way, from the public parking lot #2 at Maple Street and 2nd Avenue, north on Maple Street, through the proposed plaza area, along the west side of City Hall and extending through Grape Day Park and the public parking lot to Woodward Avenue. The corridor will include design elements such as paving enhancements, the addition of interpretive panels on Escondido history, signage, lighting, public art and street furniture. The Maple Street Pedestrian Plaza is a Smart Growth Incentive Program (SGIP) (a Sandag grant program) project that involves the reconstruction of the portion of Maple Street between W. Grand Avenue and W. Valley Parkway as a pedestrian plaza while maintaining a one-lnae, one-way street with vehicular access from Grand Avenue north to Valley Parkway. Street and plaza improvements would occur within the existing right-of-way and on-street parking (up to 23 spaces) would be eliminated. The southwesterly access driveway to public parking lot #1 would be relocated and an area for future public restroom would potentially eliminate 3-5 parking spaces. The existing driveway from Maple Street to the property at the southwest corner of Maple Street and W. Valley Parkway will be removed. The plaza will be closed to traffic at times for public events. Improvements could include paving enhancements, interpretive panels, signage, gateway arches, lighting, public art and street furniture.
