We need your help!

Costa Mesa Alliance for Better Streets is a 501(c)(3) California public benefit corporation composed of like-minded Costa Mesa residents who recognize that we are more effective working together than we are on our own. Together we monitor local and state activity that is related to street design and land use, advocate for positive changes to the built environment, and collaborate on street projects to help move forward our vision of more humane public spaces.

The most important way you can help is to stay informed about what's going on in Costa Mesa and volunteer your time with us as we work to make Costa Mesa a better place to be. CMABS is an entirely volunteer-run organization, and we could use folks to help with everything from emails and outreach to event setup and management. 


We invite you sign up sign up on our mailing list, where we'll keep you informed about what's going on and notify you about volunteer opportunities. 



Our demonstration projects and events couldn't happen without supplies like cones, landscaping materials, chairs, spray chalk, and more.  If you have any supplies that you think we could use, please drop us a line at info@cmabs.org.  


All funds donated to CMABS will be used to further our charitable, educational, and scientific programs that all work towards making our streets a better place for all users, not just those in motor vehicles.  We are an all volunteer organization, so your donation will be able to do as much good work as possible!
