Mission Boulevard Public Spaces and Active Transportation Plan

The Mission Boulevard Public Spaces and Active Transportation plan is a SANDAG grant funded effort led by the City of San Diego.The plan seeks to identify opportunities for public spaces, bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the area bounded by Mission Boulevard, Pacific Beach Drive, Diamond Street, and the boardwalk.

Engage the community to create a vision for the area by identifying opportunities for:

  • Multi-modal improvements – walking, bicycling, transit access – that enhance
    community character and access to the beach
  • Additional community spaces
  • Strategic investment in high priority projects
  • Consistent with the regulatory framework

On September 13, the City of San Diego Planning Department held a Community Workshop at the Pacific Beach/Taylor Library (4275 Cass Street, San Diego, CA 92109) from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. This document contains the exhibits that were shown at the Community Workshop and it also contains the questions that attendees were asked.

After reviewing and considering community input received on these draft concepts, City staff and consultant teams will work on refining concepts, which will be presented at a later date at our Community Workshop #2 (date, time, and place to be confirmed).

Please visit our website for additional information, such as full schedule, grant application, as well as details about future events (as information becomes available).
