Sidewalk Improvements Around the Corner

The City is working to improve the sidewalk situation, or lack thereof, in Old Town. Some sections of sidewalk on the east side of Magnolia Avenue, south of Hollister Avenue to Gaviota Street, have deteriorated while other sections are missing.

The Magnolia Sidewalk Infill Project includes replacing deteriorated or missing sidewalk on the east and west sides of Magnolia Avenue from Hollister Avenue south to Gaviota Street. The project will improve walking paths, sight distance at the intersections for drivers, drainage along Magnolia Avenue, and driveway access.

This project has been approved by City Council and is going out to bid. Construction is expected to begin this summer and take 30 working days.
