The City of Manhattan Beach invites you to join in the process to create a Landscape Master Plan for Veterans Parkway. Veterans Parkway is a significant public space in the City of Manhattan Beach, covering 21 acres, much of which has been planted and improved upon by dedicated volunteers. A Landscape Master Plan is needed to help staff and the community identify priorities for any future improvements to the site.
The overall goal of the Landscape Master Plan is to develop a blueprint for potential improvements to the Veterans Parkway that is designed to meet the needs of residents and parkway users. The first step in this process is to create a set of guidelines that can be used to prioritize future improvements. On December 18, 2012 the City Council selected Mia Lehrer and Associates to develop the landscape master plan guidelines, and lead the public involvement component of this project.
The City held three public meetings(March 11th, April 11th, and May 2nd) to discuss the project, gather input from the community, and receive comments on the planning documents before making a presentation for approval to City Council on June 25, 2013. Presentation materials from these meetings are available on the Community Workshop Details page, including drafts of the meeting results and Landscape Master Plan Guidelines.
You can review the Approved Veterans Parkway Master Plan Guidelines (PDF) document and contact the Public Works Department should you like to become involved in the project. Please direct questions to the City's Public Works Department at (310) 802-5313.
