Community Workshop 2: Preliminary Land Use and Design Plan


The second of three Community Workshops for the Tweedy Boulevard Specific Plan was held at the Senior Center at South Gate Park, 4855 Tweedy Boulevard, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 22, 2014. The workshop was well-attended with about 20 participants. Spanish translation was also provided.

After introductions, the consultant team presented PowerPoint slides showing preliminary land use, circulation and urban design concepts, including streetscape improvements. The presentation also identified potentials for implementation and how to realize change along Tweedy Boulevard.

After the presentation, the participants discussed the preliminary recommendations for the Tweedy corridor. The comments received by the participants were generally in agreement with the land use, circulation and urban design recommendations and are noted in the summary. The overall consensus was to improve the existing buildings, businesses and infrastructure to create an enhanced pedestrian environment and attract new businesses to the corridor. The comments also include those received by the Tweedy Boulevard Specific Plan Steering Committee at their meeting on November 19, 2014.

Additional information related to recommended land uses in the west and east subareas of Tweedy Boulevard are also provided in the expanded PowerPoint presentation (see below).
