At the moment, we are focusing all of our energy on what we can do to ensure that our city recovers from this pandemic in the best way it can, with the goal that our streets do not go back to normal on the other side of quarantine. Now is the time to make simple changes to our rights of way so that other ways of getting around are available and viable once this is over. We (the City) have had goals of reducing car-traffic and car-speeding, and improving walkability and bikeability for years. Now is our chance to implement these goals. CMABS is working to help. We have three projects ongoing:
The Costa Mesa Streateries project is helping restaurants recover from COVID-19 by expanding into parking lots and street spaces while simultaneously improving our streetscape.
CMABS has published a set of self-guided bike tours of Costa Mesa. Visit parks, learn about Costa Mesa's history, or take a tour of donut shops!
The Costa Mesa Slow Streets Project is trying to help make our residential streets safer for everyone. Read more here and here.
