Coastal Mobility and Livability Study

Project/Study Overview

The Coastal Mobility and Livability Study (CMLS) links together three separate mobility studies to provide a long-term vision for potential projects within and adjacent to the rail corridor:

  • Rail Corridor Vision Study (RCVS) - Provide a long-term, comprehensive vision for the rail corridor based on input from both multijurisdictional agencies and members of the public to address connectivity and quality of life needs along the rail corridor in consideration of numerous ongoing projects in this area. Early action projects may be identified, such as a quiet zone.
  • Coastal Business Districts Parking Study - Collect parking-related data to identify and make recommendations for policies addressing parking and mobility needs in the coastal business districts for potential future implementation.
  • Active Transportation Plan (ATP) - Identify focused amendments to the City’s existing plans for pedestrian and bicycle travel and prioritize those, which will include areas citywide.

The City prepared a CMLS brochure handout to help explain the three mobility studies, how they have been coordinated into the CMLS, and how they will relate to a future effort to update the City's Circulation Element portion of the General Plan. A graphic project schedule was created to show how the three mobility studies will work together and engage and inform residents, businesses, and community members about the work program. A Public Participation Plan was created to obtain and utilize public input.

The project was initiated in January 2016 with a projected completion anticipated in late 2017/early 2018. Afterward, work necessary to incorporate the planning and implementation projects resulting from these studies will need to be prioritized and funded prior to commencing.
