“The project team has reviewed and incorporated public input gathered during the first round of engagement, which was conducted during the spring of 2021,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “We invite you to participate in the second and final workshop to preview and confirm recommendations on the draft concepts.”
“At this meeting we will share the results of the public engagement activities, including identified community priorities and desired improvements, present concept recommendations and gather final input from the community,” said Mayor Pro Tem Laura Bettencourt.
“We will also share the next steps of the project as we move toward the Draft Final Report,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “Your feedback and thoughts are important to the future of this corridor, so please get involved by participating in the workshop.”
The Avenue Q Corridor study is funded from a $250,000 grant provided through Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The funding is provided through SCAG’s Sustainable Communities Program for Regional Corridors. City staff will work with consultants from Toole Design to gather input from the community to draft the plan, which is anticipated to be completed in early 2022.
