New Councilmembers, Riverwalk and Pedestrian Safety Improvements Highlight City Hall to YOU on Dec. 7

The City is excited to introduce our newly elected Councilmembers this Weds, Dec. 7, at City Hall to YOU from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Elks Lodge, 150 Jewell St. Focused on Ocean Street and Upper Eastside areas, the event is designed for community dialogue with city leaders and staff on neighborhood-specific topics in an open house/town hall format.


New City Councilmembers Chris Krohn, Martine Watkins, Sandy Brown and Cynthia Mathews will be certified by 6 p.m. on Dec. 6, 2016.


We are also pleased to introduce new plans for pedestrian crossing safety improvements at 21 City locations including Ocean, Soquel and North Branciforte intersections. This is the result of a new Cycle 8 Highway Safety Improvement Program grant of $968,200. The plans will be displayed at one of 20 booths featuring projects and programs across all City departments.



One of the intersections that will receive new pedestrian crossing improvements is Ocean Street at Dakota.


Our City Hall to you town hall presentations will focus on Riverwalk safety investments, Neighborhood Safety Team progress, affordable housing and Ocean Street Corridor development.
