Artesia Blvd Improvements Update

We have been trying to improve & energize Artesia Blvd to attract more businesses. Together, the city and the businesses will create community gathering areas and improved pedestrian experience.
First, we completed a study and asked for input. As a reminder, here was the latest post & pictures about the results & ideas for the Boulevards:
What were identified as the obstacles to energize Artesia Blvd?
  • Small Lots
  • Building allowed vs land cost
  • Stringent Parking Requirements
On Tuesday, July 12. City Council will give direction to staff on how to move forward.   We’d like to get Council’s direction on the following topics:
  1. Given land and construction costs would you support planning for a parking garage(s) for the Corridors?
  2. Since Staff is already pursuing a BID for Artesia Boulevard, would you support including a parking benefit district as part of that strategy, including parking meters
  3. Do you want to invest in regular (e.g. annual) parking monitoring within the AACAP area?
  4. Which strategies would you support to increase parking flexibility, if any?

•On-site flexibility options: valet parking, mechanical lifts, tandem parking, & adjusted parking requirements • Off-site flexibility options: off-site dedicated parking & on-street parking credits

    Change Artesia back to the original name: Redondo Beach Blvd.

    This street name exists in Compton, Harbor Gateway, Gardena, Lawndale BUT NOT IN REDONDO BEACH

    If/when Artesia Boukevard becomes a destination point, providing convenient parking systems would be a benefit. However, transforming the energy and vibe of Artesia primary. The incentive program has helped but not to the degree needed. More money, stronger merchants/brands would propel the transformation. When a handful of merchants & or ownership, steps up to create a heightened aesthetic experience for their patrons, all will follow.
