10th Street Visioning Plan
Client: City of Long Beach Location: Long Beach, CA
10th Street in Long Beach runs for miles through diverse neighborhoods, taking on new identities along the way, through residential, commercial, and mixed-use areas. Here LA worked with the City to form a vision for the street, which was centered around improving it for the neighborhood’s residents. After two rounds of workshops and technical advisory inputs, Here LA drafted the Visioning Plan which recommended a suite of improvements, as well as a series of Pilot Strategies that could be implemented for an earmarked $60,000 that the City had identified. The Pilot Strategies included a experimental “bus-let” or temporary bulbed-out bus stop, temporary curb extensions, artful crosswalks, and a community painting project for the telephone poles that ran along the north side of the street.
