Main Street Master Plan Streetscape Open House

Apr 4 2018 - 4:30pm to 8:00pm
CSUMB at Salinas City Center, 1 Main St., Salinas

We hope to see you at an open house on next steps for the Main Street Master Plan on Wednesday, April 4th from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. The plan is heading towards completion after two years of design and consultation with businesses, organizations, and residents, as part of the creation of the Downtown Vibrancy Plan. Construction work is expected to begin as early as this fall. 

Attendees will be able to review streetscape elements of the Main Street plan as well as the coordination of construction, so as to minimize its impact on businesses. Options for the latter include the sequencing of activities, use of off-hours, and maintaining access to and visibility of storefronts.

Both the Main Street Master Plan and the overall Downtown Vibrancy Plan are focused on making downtown a thriving center for current and new businesses, shops, restaurants and cultural activities, drawing locals and visitors.

Leading community planning firm Kimley Horn and business district design specialist New City America are working with the City on the plans, in collaboration with the Salinas City Center Improvement Association (SCCIA).

For the Main Street Master Plan, Kimley Horn facilitated public meetings in March, September, and December of 2016. The plan was presented to the City Council in August of 2017, and approved by the Council on Oct. 24, 2017.

Present at the April 4th public meeting will be Mayor Joe Gunter, other representatives from the City, the SCCIA, and New City America president Marco Li Mandri.
