Redesign Project For Michigan Avenue In SaMo
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Mar 5, 2013 - 10:40:53 AM

SANTA MONICA—The city of Santa Monica wants feedback from residents on the redesign of a three-mile stretch of Michigan Avenue in order to make it safer for pedestrians and bicyclists as well as to enhance its features.

The project is called the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway and its boundaries are from Seventh Street at the eastern edge of Santa Monica High School to 20th Street. Included in the project is the section between 21st Street and the Bergamot Station Arts Center.

Plans for the redesign involve adding benches, improvements to crosswalks and planting more trees and shrubs. The city wants the opinion on the project from those who live along Michigan Avenue and in the Pico Neighborhood from the Santa Monica High School, Santa Monica College and Bergamot Station communities.

A similar project was conducted on the Ocean Park Boulevard which took approximately one year to complete and cost $4 million. The project does not have a budget as of yet and is funded by a Caltrans Environmental Justice Grant.

A public planning workshop is schedule for March 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Thelma Terry Building at Virginia Avenue Park on 2200 Virginia Avenue. Planners will go over the plans for the project and then  conduct a one-hour walk or bike audit on Michigan Avenue. Attendees will be provided with refreshments, childcare and Spanish translation.
