West Broadway Urban Village Infrastructure Project
Design Improvements Have Begun The City of Seaside is progressing towards implementing the West Broadway Urban Village Specific Plan with construction of public infrastructure improvements within the Specific Plan area. The project scope includes the design of the following public improvements:
- Streetscape and intersection improvements along Broadway Avenue, between Fremont and Del Monte Boulevards;
- Realignment and signalization of the intersections at Broadway Avenue and Del Monte Boulevard and Del Monte Boulevard and Palm Avenue;
- Development of pedestrian and bicycle amenities along Broadway Avenue, between Fremont and Del Monte Boulevards; and
- Upgrade of public utilities within the public right of way within the entire Specific Plan area.
ABOUT THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT
The City of Seaside has undergone an exciting planning process to strengthen the economic, social, cultural and recreational fabric of 40 acres in the City’s central business district. The West Broadway Urban Village Specific Plan (WBUV) seeks to create a distinctive mixed-use, transit-oriented urban core. It includes a mix of residential with ground floor retail and commercial uses along Broadway Avenue with supporting future transit-oriented development along the west side of Del Monte Boulevard. The adopted design guidelines promote smart growth and green building practices. The WBUV Specific Plan was recognized by the Transportation Agency of Monterey County as a 2009 Transportation Excellence Award winner for improving traffic through its transit-oriented components.
The Urban Village footprint (PDF) extends along Broadway and Palm Avenues from Fremont Boulevard west to Del Monte Boulevard, south along Del Monte Boulevard to Canyon Del Rey Boulevard, and on the north side of Canyon Del Rey Boulevard from Del Monte Boulevard to just before the Seaside City Hall.
Two catalyst projects identified within the WBUV Specific Plan study area include a public library and parking garage mixed use development on Broadway Avenue and a Gateway hotel / conference center mixed-use development at the southeast corner of Canyon Del Rey and Del Monte Boulevards. The City Council unanimously adopted the WBUV Specific Plan by ordinance on January 21, 2010 and it is now in effect. The corresponding Program Environmental Impact Report was certified December 2009.
