Document Description
The City of La Mesa is embarking on a streetscape improvement project to enhance the City's public right-of-way. The current streetscape improvements in the Downtown Village area date to the early 1980's. Sidewalks have deteriorated over the years and do not meet current accessibility standards. The project consists of modifications to streets, sidewalks, lighting and landscaping in the downtown area of La Mesa, commonly known as the La Mesa "Village". The City of La Mesa was incorporated in 1912, and some of the buildings in the Downtown Village along La Mesa Boulevard date from the late 1800s and early twentieth century. These structures are not proposed to be altered within the streetscape enhancement project area. The focus of the project is to upgrade street and sidewalk areas to improve public access and mobility to adjacent retail establishments. In addition to new curb, gutter, sidewalks, pedestrian ramps and crosswalk enhancements at intersections, the project will feature new landscaping and street lighting for good aesthetics and an improved pedestrian environment. Sidewalk bulb-outs are proposed in pedestrian-use areas and to reduce pedestrian exposure at intersection crossings at several intersections from Acacia Avenue to 4th Street along La Mesa Boulevard.
