Sepulveda Boulevard Planning Initiatives


Manhattan Beach, CA (April 12, 2018) –
The City of Manhattan Beach launched an effort in late 2017 to address opportunities for improvement along Sepulveda Boulevard, including economic vitality, planning, parking, traffic and overall beautification. The City brought together neighbors, property and business owners, developers and real estate professionals to form a community working group who would develop recommendations to encourage better walkability, desirable and diverse uses, and improve the City’s largest commercial corridor.

Sepulveda Initiatives

Sepulveda Boulevard is the City’s only state highway and serves as a major transportation corridor for the South Bay. As noted in the City’s General Plan, this brings heavy traffic and associated noise impacts, requiring an adequate buffer to protect the residents living in the area. The Plan also stresses the importance of “the scale and character of commercial development” along this thoroughfare, something that the Sepulveda Community Working Group reaffirmed and used as a guiding principal as they developed their recommendations.

The Sepulveda Community Working Group met a number of times after City Council approved the effort in September 2017. Out of these robust discussions, the Group developed recommendations that focus on attracting desirable uses, increasing safety, updating parking standards, and ultimately creating a more attractive, enjoyable area.  

To review the Community Working Group’s full report and recommendations, please visit www.citymb.info/sepulveda-corridor. Staff will present the report to the Planning Commission on April 25, 2018, and follow-up with a public hearing on May 23, 2018. The City welcomes the community’s feedback on these recommendations and encourages anyone interested to attend these upcoming Planning Commission meetings.
