The city of Lompoc Planning Division has received its second award in connection with the Lompoc Streetscape Multi-Modal Improvement Plan.
A statewide award of merit was awarded to the city by the California Chapter of the American Planning Association at its annual conference held in Fresno in September.
Previously, the Lompoc Planning Division received recognition at a regional level in April for the streetscape improvement plan from the California Chapter of the American Planning Association.
Lompoc worked with planning consultant RRM Design Group and Caltrans to create a long-term transportation plan for Lompoc called the Lompoc Streetscape Multi-Modal Improvement Plan.
The plan will provide bicycle and pedestrian improvements along the North H Street (Highway 1) and Ocean Avenue (Highway 246) corridors, as well as streetscape design and beautification measures.
The plan preserves safety and creates a more walkable community, multimodal access and connectivity along state highways.
The streetscape plan also identifies opportunities for new city gateways, art, and landscaping improvements while encouraging in-fill development and revitalization along Lompoc’s major transportation corridors.
The Lompoc Streetscape Multi-Modal Improvement Plan is listed on the Caltrans Lompoc area projects list and is scheduled for construction in spring/fall of 2029.
