The area, known as Paseo Santa Fe, encompasses S. Santa Fe Avenue between Vista Village Drive and Civic Center Drive. The vision is to fill the area with retail/shops/restaurants topped with living spaces to revitalize the downtown area.
PROJECT (.75 miles includes Phases I,II, and III)
Phase I (.25 miles): The project began in May, 2014 and the first phase was completed in early April, 2016. The project extends from Main Street to Ocean View Drive. Along this stretch of corridor, S. Santa Fe Avenue was reconfigured from four lanes into two lanes and all overhead utilities were placed underground and storm drain improvements were added. Other upgrades included new, wide sidewalks, streetlights, pedestrian furniture, and landscaping. The City's first roundabout was constructed at Eucalyptus Avenue and S. Santa Fe Avenue, creating a three-way intersection.
Phase II (.20 miles): Extends from Ocean View Drive to Terrace Drive. This includes constructing street improvements and a roundabout at Guajome and Terrace drives. Design is taking place in 2016 with construction following in 2017.
Phase III (.30 miles): Extends from Terrace Drive to Civic Center Drive. This includes constructing physical improvements and a roundabout at Pala Vista Drive. This phase of the project is in design, but the construction is currently unfunded.
