Planning For Santa Monica’s Future: An Overview From The City Of Santa Monica:

Big changes are coming to Santa Monica and city planners are working hard to coordinate all the moving pieces.  

This Saturday, June 20, the City’s Director of Planning and Community Development David Martin will present an overview of his department’s major projects to the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica (LWVSM) and guests.

“We are pleased to offer community members a chance to hear from an expert about the policies that are involved in managing big changes to our City,” said LWVSM President Ann Williams. “However you feel about these changes, it is important to know all the facts.”

Martin will discuss the arrival of the Expo Light Rail and the implementation of the 2010 Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE), including the Zoning Ordinance Update, the Downtown Specific Plan and some of the proposed development projects. The LUCE emphasizes transit-oriented development and sustainable planning practices, and implementation efforts include the recently completed Bicycle Action Plan and Pedestrian Action Plan.

Time will be provided for questions from the audience.

Martin has been a Santa Monica planner since 1987 and has served as the City’s Director of Planning and Community Development since 2011. He  holds a B.S. in Urban and Regional Planning from California Polytechnic University.

As part of its mission, the LWVSM presents local programs and public meetings to promote an understanding of important public policy issues. The LWVSM has been an active civic organization in Santa Monica since 1934. If you would like more information about the LWVSM, go to www.lwvsantamonica.org or see our facebook page.

Martin’s presentation will be held at the Ken Edwards Center at 1527 4th Street on Saturday, June 20 at noon. Metered parking is available on-site, and the location is well-served by the Big Blue Bus.  

A light sandwich and salad lunch will be available for a suggested $20 donation. To make a reservation for lunch, go to www.lwvsantamonica.org/calendar.html and to R.S.V.P. for the presentation alone, contact pres@lwvsantamonica.org.
