Downtown Complete Streets Project

Downtown Vibrancy

Downtown Salinas is poised for a new community-based vision plan for pedestrians, bicycles, traffic flow, sustainable parking and attractive sense of place. The proposed Vibrancy Plan is intended to address serious needs to update Downtown's infrastructure to assure pedestrian safety, calm vehicular traffic to encourage increased bicycle use, provide a sustainable parking strategy, and create a sense of place through art and culture that attracts visitors to a new, safe destination.

Homelessness in Salinas

We are working with our partners on a compassionate, real solution to homelessness. That solution requires both that we address immediate needs and that we respond systemically at the scale the problem requires. That’s what we’re doing.

The partnership we have formed includes the City of Salinas, the County of Monterey, homeless service providers and the Community Foundation of Monterey County.
