State Street Master Plan
The State Street Master Plan is a long-term visioning document for the revitalization of downtown over the next 30 to 50 years. It will look holistically at various challenges and opportunities for downtown Santa Barbara and present an urban design framework and implementation plan that, once completed, can be translated into future capital improvement projects in the corridor. Downtown Santa Barbara can be reimagined to focus on people, in turn, creating a thriving public space. This Master Plan builds on the momentum of the eight-block State Street closure driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and will identify opportunities and constraints to transform the right-of-way into a vital urban place for all to enjoy. This Plan will put community engagement at the forefront in order to shape a vibrant Santa Barbara downtown for generations to come.
