Another pair of community workshops has been scheduled by the City.
The subject this time out is the “pedestrian and streetscape enhancement design” of Second and Fourth Streets between Wilshire Boulevard and Colorado Avenue in downtown Santa Monica.
People attending the workshops will be asked for comments and suggestions for the City’s redesign of the two streets that is now underway.
The $4.5 million project will include pedestrian lighting, new street trees, pedestrian crosswalk improvements and, according to a City spokesperson, “other elements to enhance the walking environment.”
The first of the two workshops will focus on merchants’ comments and suggestions and will be held on Monday, April 4, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. The second meeting is scheduled on Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Both meetings will be held at Ken Edwards Center, 1524 Fourth Street.This project is a kind of postscript to the $15 million transit mall project that was completed a couple of years ago.
