Oxnard – Downtown Vision Plan
Over the course of five days, based on community input, analysis and design studies, the Charrette Team outlined a vision for the future of the Downtown emphasizing a human-scale, pedestrian-oriented, safe, comfortable and interesting public realm, and market-driven, vision-informed infill and economic development.
As a bridge between these simply expressed objectives and appropriate Downtown development standards and action plan, the Team focused on illustrating a range of forms, scales and types of infill development and public space improvements that have the potential – if systematically pursued – to deploy available market support to build the Downtown the community hopes to have, one project at a time.
Successful revitalization of town centers always depends on focus, to ensure that each new increment of investment and improvement is connected to and building value with other nearby, coordinated improvements. Accordingly, this vision plan focuses on the 7 Big Ideas that emerged from the Charrette, listed to the right and described and illustrated in the following pages.
2.1 Transform Oxnard Boulevard
2.3 A Street
2.4 Colonia Rd | Bicycle Connectivity
