The area, known as Paseo Santa Fe, encompasses the S. Santa Fe Avenue corridor between Vista Village Drive and Civic Center Drive. The City's vision is to fill the area with retail/shops/restaurants topped with living spaces to revitalize the downtown area. The project is being constructed in three phases. Phase I was completed in 2016 and Phase II was completed in May, 2020.
Phase III (.30 miles): This phase extends from Terrace Drive to Civic Center Drive. Work on undergrounding utilities and storm, water, and sewer improvements were completed in December, 2019. The surface street improvements began the week of May 11, 2020 and will include adding the final third roundabout, to be located at Pala Vista Drive. The surface improvements such as landscaping, sidewalks, and lighting will be completed after the road work is completed. Final construction of the Paseo Santa Fe Street Improvement Project is anticipated in winter 2020/21.

The City will strive to minimize traffic impacts sometimes associated with construction. While the benefits are considerable, the City understands the construction may impact residents and businesses. We appreciate the public and local business owners' patience as we work to improve the downtown core.
The City is providing special consideration for business signage during construction. Businesses are encouraged to provide additional signage for their businesses. For information on business signage or other resources, check the Road Construction Tool Kit .
