State Street Promenade Gets New Look
Source: City of Santa Barbara
Downtown State Street is being improved with new landscaped terracotta pots, traffic control signage, bollards, and green bike lanes at each intersection. The purpose of the interim intersection control project is to replace the temporary construction feeling with something that has more of a Santa Barbara style.
The interim intersection controls are anticipated to be replaced with permanent State Street improvements yet to be determined. This will likely take a minimum of 3 years to develop and fund. The current project is anticipated to be completed in February.
The City Council formed a State Street Subcommittee to oversee the visioning process for the future downtown State Street. The Subcommittee will be meeting on January 25 to begin to review the public input and feedback generated through the outreach efforts from the fall.
A community survey is still open until the end of January, those who have not taken the survey are encouraged to do so at www.santabarbaraca.gov/statestreet.
