- Specific Plan Amendment (SPA08-001)
- The project is a city initiated amendment to the Downtown Village Specific Plan to incorporate an expanded and enhanced version of the pedestrian promenade concept and a linear park in the Main Street Promenade District. The expanded pedestrian promenade requires the elimination of vehicular traffic on Main Street between North Avenue and Broadway and elimination of through-traffic between Broadway and Pacific Avenue on Main Street. The development of the pedestrian will require: vacation of public right-of-way, acquisition of private property along the Broadway street frontage, and establishment of easements. The project will be accomplished in phases and includes demolition of public street improvements, grading, retaining walls, the installtion of pathways, plazas, public street lighting, traffic signals and controls, road stripping, drainage improvements, bike lanes, signage, and landscape improvements. The existing bus stop on the north side of Broadway is relocated out of a travel lane and bike lane to a dedicated bus stop lane and pull-out. The existing bus stop on Main Street south of Broadway will be relocated to the south side of Broadway within a dedicated bus lane outside of the travel lanes and bike lane. The public street and trolley/railroad crossing at Lemon Grove Avenue and Broadway will be redesigned in order to accommodate the relocated pedestrian crossing from the east side of the trolley tracks to the west side of the trolley tracks. The Main Street Promenade will integrate the existing MTS light rail platform to the proposed transit plaza. This concept will be accomplished eith grading, landscape and hardscaped improvements within the city property and MTS right-of-way. The implementation of this concept will require approval and collaboration with the MTS, individual utility companies or agencies and the California Public Utilities Commission.
