Downtown and TOD Pedestrian Master Plan

As described in the recently adopted Mobility Element of the General Plan, the City of Long Beach has a vision for a more safe and enjoyable pedestrian-friendly community. In an effort to achieve this vision, the City has begun preparing a Downtown and Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Pedestrian Master Plan (Plan). Made possible by a grant from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), the intent of the Pedestrian Plan is to provide policies, guidelines, and standards that ensure best practices for pedestrian design and identify catalytic infrastructure projects.

The creation of the Plan is a collaborative effort led by Metro, Long Beach Development Services, the City of Long Beach Public Works Department, and the City of Long Beach Office of Sustainability, with extensive input provided by local stakeholders, including residents, employees, business and property owners, developers, and community organizations.
