City of Downey Civic Center / Downtown Downey Specific Plan / Mixed Use

Document Description
The proposed master plan includes two public open spaces, which provide 1.16 acres of new park area and a lined park-once structure that would serve employees and visitors alike. The District's primary open space would be the Central Green characterized by large shade trees and amenities such as a playground, band shell, and restroom structures. A secondary plaza would enhance a proposed library coffee kiosk, and a palm-line promenade would strengthen pedestrian connections from Brookshire Avenue. Proposed improvements to the DowneyLINK system include changing the routes from a loop system to a two-way service system, providing better ADA access to the buses, providing signal prioritization for buses, providing a stop at the Metro Green Line station, and providing additional routes.
