Visión Salinas: an Integrated Planning Initiative

Community Development is working on Visión Salinas, a unified urban planning and outreach effort between the Alisal Vibrancy Plan, Parks and Rec Master Plan, and the Chinatown Revitalization Plan. The website includes a portal to sign up for notifications, a community calendar for outreach events, project descriptions, and projects updates. Visión Salinas will not only act as the overarching umbrella that coordinates between these three plans, but it will also be the backbone of the city-wide bilingual outreach effort, which will serve to collect guiding principles of the community as the City undertakes a General Plan Update in 2018.

Alisal Vibrancy Plan

The Alisal Vibrancy Plan is an action-oriented and comprehensive community strategy to address issues and opportunities specific to the Alisal/East Salinas neighborhoods. Through land use mix, urban design, pedestrians and vehicle circulation, public infrastructure, parks, open space, public facilities, and safety, the Vibrancy Plan seeks to create a robust framework for sustained economic opportunities that lead to a Alisal as a vibrant cultural district for residents and visitors.

Chinatown Revitalization Plan

The Chinatown Revitalization plan is a coordinated planning effort between the City of Salinas and Chinatown residents, partners, and business owners. This community-led planning process will continue the revitalization of this critical neighborhood located near Downtown Salinas. The process will build on the extensive work from the 2007 and 2010 Plans to develop updated recommendations and implementation strategies to address the housing, access, mobility, and socioeconomic needs of the neighborhood.

Parks, Rec, & Libraries Master Plan

The Parks, Rec, & Libraries Master Plan will guide the City's efforts and establish a path forward for continuing to provide high quality, community-driven parks, recreation facilities and programs and library services serving the Salinas community. The Plan will include a vision for the park, recreation and library system, goals and objectives, a capital investment program, and implementation strategies for parks, programs and services.

Other Plans & Projects Associated with Visión Salinas

Visión Salinas will also include information and event updates for Big Sur Land Trust's Carr Lake initiative, the outreach process for the new Police Services Headquarters, and updates on the El Gabilan Library Project.
