-Downtown Atascadero
Infrastructure Enhancement Plan-

 

LOCATION MAP

HISTORY & BACKGROUND

The El Camino Real Downtown Traffic Calming and Corridor Plan (Project) is envisioned to be a planning level document that outlines recommendations for future road improvements incorporating enhanced pedestrian and bicycle access along with increased parking opportunities and safer crosswalks. The goal is to enhance economic development in the downtown by creating a zone that slows traffic speeds and enhances appearance and safety. The Project limits include the El Camino Corridor from the intersection of Highway 41 to the intersection of Rosario Avenue.

Over the last several decades, the City has implemented improvements in the downtown, which were identified as part of the Downtown Revitalization Plan, Downtown Design Guidelines, and the City’s Wayfinding Program. Improvements were generally limited to sidewalk widening at corners (bulb-outs), sidewalk enhancements, signage, raised planted medians and crosswalks. Other key facility improvements have also been implemented such as the Sunken Gardens improvements and the Centennial Bridge and Plaza project.

The Traffic Calming Plan takes a closer look at how to best utilize the existing roadway width. El Camino Real in the downtown still maintains its roughly 80-foot width (curb-to-curb) and design features that reflect its past use as a highway. A large component of the plan is the analysis of existing and future traffic operations through the downtown corridor under a “road diet” scenario. By dropping a vehicular lane in both the northbound and southbound directions, it is possible to add enhanced pedestrian and bicycle facilities, additional public spaces, and parking. Given the ongoing development and redevelopment within the downtown area, this project is a timely opportunity to assess how the El Camino Real corridor can best serve the needs of residents, businesses, and the multiple transportation needs.

 

As noted above, several factors have converged over recent years that warrant a new analysis of downtown area transportation patterns. First, downtown Atascadero is currently experiencing an economic upswing due to City investments and strong interest from private developers and business owners. New restaurants, cafes, and breweries, in conjunction with a growing number of special events, are bringing more visitors to the Downtown area. The Centennial Bridge and Plaza Project is stimulating interest from private developers, resulting in both large and small private projects. Most notable are the La Plaza Mixed-Use and Bridge Walk Hotel developments, as well as the new ownership and use of the previously City-owned annex (Creekside) building. These developments and others will result in an increase in downtown activity, including vehicle trips, pedestrians, cyclists, and other multi-modal methods of transportation.

Secondly, the Atascadero High School (AHS) and the Atascadero Junior High School (AJHS) are located within ¼ mile of the El Camino Real Downtown Corridor. School related traffic is a significant consideration throughout the corridor, particularly during peak hours occurring from drop-off and pick-up times. With additional vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic in the Downtown area, concerns regarding the safety and function of El Camino Real have arisen from residents and business owners, particularly at intersections and existing mid-block crossings. These concerns are likely to increase in the future as complete streets improvements to State Route 41 in 2020, and potential improvements to the Atascadero Avenue and Mall corridor, will likely encourage pedestrian and bicycle traffic to be funneled through the US 101 tunnel and elsewhere.

Third, merchants, residents, developers, and City leaders have expressed the need for more parking and pedestrian access within the downtown district due to an increase in economic activity and special events. Limited parking is available on El Camino Real and includes non-metered, parallel on-street parking. A mix of diagonal and parallel parking exists on other Downtown streets adjacent to El Camino Real. Increasing parking opportunities on El Camino Real will be advantageous in furthering the economic goals of the Downtown. Currently, the width and speed of traffic on El Camino Real discourages visitors from using the corridor for parking or walking across El Camino Real to go to a business on the other side of the street.


The overall objective of the project is to develop a holistic traffic calming and corridor plan along the Downtown El Camino Real Corridor that considers the needs and goals of all multimodal users, residents, businesses, and City leaders. The final corridor plan is intended to serve as a blueprint or master plan for future improvements within the El Camino Real right-of-way, which should further the economic goals of the City while enhancing the Downtown Corridor’s safety and aesthetic appearance for all users. Specifically, the City identified the following project objectives:

  • Provide public safety for all roadway users by incorporating complete streets and “road diet” concepts and principals
  • Enhance economic development by supporting existing and future merchants with additional parking
  • Support downtown business synergy through a partnership in crafting a Downtown Traffic Calming Plan
  • Enhance the streetscape of El Camino Real by creating a sense of place and arrival into the Downtown
  • Create safe pedestrian connections and crossings while enhancing the walkability of Downtown
  • Slow vehicular speeds to increase safety and visibility, including an analysis of impacts to level of service (LOS)
  • Enhance the ability to host more special events in the Downtown area
  • Accommodate multi-modal transportation, where feasible

 

KTUA of San Diego was hired in November 2017 to assist the City in the analysis and development of a corridor plan. CCTC of Morro Bay is working as a subconsultant to KTUA to provide traffic engineering and operations analysis. Council awarded the Downtown Traffic Calming project to KTUA in November 2017, and City staff has been working closely with KTUA and CCTC to develop alternatives that meet the objectives listed above, while at the same time balancing impacts to varied roadway users. The City hosted mutiple outreach events in 2019, recieving a lot of feedback from the community. After this feedback from the public and City Council, KTUA returned a revised plan that was once again presented at multiple public workshops in 2020. After compiling all of the feedback recieved , the following concept plan was approved by City Council on August 11, 2020. For more information, please review the staff report published in the August 11, 2020 City Council Agenda.

-Colony Square-

LOCATION MAP & EXISTING SITE

The Colony Square Development is located on the City’s primary corridor: El Camino Real. The site is zoned Downtown Commercial and lies within the Downtown Revitalization Plan. The existing site includes a vacant land and is surrounded by a movie theater and 13,000 square-feet of retail space. 

HISTORY & BACKGROUND

The applicant has worked diligently with staff and the DRC on crafting the site plan and architecture. The architecture, landscaping, and signage is consistent with the intent of the Master Plan of Development. The proposed project continues to accomplish the project objectives including:

  • Implementing the General Plan and Downtown Revitalization Plan;
  • Maximizes the property’s potential in manner consistent with the General Plan;
  • Broadens the City’s tax base by providing local and regional tax generating uses through Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT);
  • Maximizes the economic viability of the vacant site;
  • Provides necessary adequate infrastructure and public amenities;
  • Locates a commercial project at the new Centennial Bridge landing to connect the theater to the Sunken Gardens, consistent with the Downtown Revitalization Plan.

The mixed-use project consists of:

  • 67 residential units
  • 58,250 square-feet of retail/restaurant space
  • An 89 room hotel (total square-feet: 61,550)
  • A 10 Screen (35,000 square-feet) movie theater

RENDERINGS & CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS

RECORDS

In August 2005, the Planning Commission approved a mixed-use Master Plan of Development for the Colony Square project (CUP 2004-0127). The project was considered a major cornerstone of the Atascadero Downtown Revitalization Plan, including additional density of retail, restaurants, a movie theater, residential presence, and a mid-block pedestrian connection through Atascadero Creek to connect with the Sunken Gardens.

In 2015, the L-shaped property between El Camino Real and the former City Hall as well as the existing theater and restaurants were sold to a new owner. The new owner has been working with City staff and the project architect to explore ways to develop the L-shaped site for optimum use. With construction of the Centennial Bridge now connecting the site to the Sunken Gardens and the new City parking lot on Lewis Avenue, the applicant was compelled to move forward and has submitted an amendment to add a boutique hotel with restaurant spaces on the subject parcel.

The Atascadero Design Review Committee reviewed a preliminary concept plan for the proposed hotel on October 11, 2017, and then reviewed an updated design and parking study on April 11, 2018. The Committee recommended minor architectural changes which were incorporated into the current proposal. The DRC recommended drop off areas and valet services be provided for the hotel. The Porte-cochere drop off area was added, as well as condition of approval that the owner obtains an agreement for offsite parking for the hotel valet service.

The proposed Conditional Use Permit Amendment is in substantial conformance with Certified Mitigated Negative Declaration 2005-0020, approved for the original Colony square project on August 16, 2005. The project size, overall design, and location of the buildings are in substantial conformance with the 2005 CEQA analysis. The original Mitigation Measures are included in the attached resolution without changes.

Public input throughout this process is key in developing a plan that reflects the vision of the Atascadero community.  We want our community's input! 

We will be outside City Hall at Colony Days again this year and want to hear from you!

Please see the Exising Conditions Assesment for the latest update (September 2019)

The City of Atascadero is currently developing a corridor plan to identify future improvements and land uses along El Camino Real.  The City has been awarded a Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant to complete this study, and the Planning consultant, PlaceWorks, has been contracted to develop the plan. The goal is to provide the City with a blueprint and the tools to transform the existing auto-oriented, regional corridor into a multi-modal economic hub.

El Camino Real is the central spine of the City, and has a significant bearing on the overall image, identity, and economic health of Atascadero.  It is the main north-south thoroughfare; and the primary access to services, the downtown core, and surrounding neighborhoods. Recent investment within the downtown, upcoming development and new businesses, and the Downtown Traffic Calming study provide solid groundwork from which to envision and develop the concepts for a vibrant corridor overall.

Across the nation, past development and investment patterns have stripped corridors of their role as vital areas connecting and creating community. These in-between spaces of a city that connect activity centers are typically overlooked as places for community connection and new market opportunities. As a result, long-neglected corridors across the country are plagued with haphazard development patterns and underutilized uses.

The seven mile stretch of El Camino Real which runs through Atascadero suffers from many of these same issues. The corridor serves as a local collector and regional pass-through arterial. It has an underutilized mix of auto-oriented strip retail, office, and traditional anchor-based commercial centers. It is often observed that the El Camino corridor lacks a sense of place and does not have the characteristics of a “destination.” Yet the corridor also contains many uses that represent the heart of the community - a historic downtown core, the Sunken Gardens park, and a mix of entertainment, restaurant and retail uses which are valued by the community. The challenge along the El Camino corridor is to define an innovative but realistic set of recommendations to produce a new vision to move El Camino Real into the future and enable it to function as an active, well-utilized, balanced, and employment generating corridor.

During this planning study, existing land uses and zoning along the corridor will be analyzed and recommendations provided to enhance key commercial areas and compliment adjacent uses. By improving transportation options and facilitating commercial growth, the City hopes to grow its employment and economic base and acquire a healthier jobs to housing balance. Now is this time to look comprehensively at the overall El Camino Real corridor, bring together previous planning and recent investment throughout the corridor, and create a unique sense of place within the heart of the Atascadero community.

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires state and local agencies to assess the environmental impacts of certain projects, and notify the public of those impacts prior to approving the projects. Some projects may be “categorically exempt” from CEQA because of their size or nature, or because there is no reasonable possibility that they will significantly affect the environment.  Article 19 of the CEQA Guidelines lists the types of projects that are normally exempt.

 Climate Action Planning To be Discussed at Atascadero Design Review Committee

On Thursday, August 16 at 3:30 pm, the City of Atascadero’s Design Review Committee will be holding its first steering committee meeting to discuss the Countywide Climate Action Plan, also known as the Central Coast Greenhouse Gas Planning project. The purpose of the Countywide Climate Action Plan is to assist cities in San Luis Obispo County in developing strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions consistent with the requirements of State’s “AB-32” requirements.

In March 2012, the Atascadero City Council agreed to participate with the San Luis Obispo Air Pollution Control District in a countywide grant to prepare a Climate Action Plan “toolbox.”  This toolbox of possible greenhouse gas reduction measures will be prepared by a consultant, who would quantify the reduction potential and fiscal impact of each potential measure.  Each of the six participating San Luis Obispo County cites would be able to choose measures from the toolbox to complete their own individual Climate Action Plans. 

The Atascadero City Council has appointed the City’s Design Review Committee to act as a steering committee during the Climate Action Planning process.  This existing review committee is made up of two Planning Commissioners, two City Council members and one at-large member.  The Committee’s meetings are always open to the public. 

Next week the Climate Action Plan consultant will be making a presentation to the Atascadero steering committee in order to layout the project objectives, outline the process to expect as we move forward and answer any questions that the Committee or the public may have.  The Committee will provide the consultant and City staff direction on the preparation of the toolbox and Atascadero’s individual Climate Action Plan.    

Additional information about the Central Coast Greenhouse Gas Planning project can be found at www.CentralCoastGHGPlanning.com.  Any information specific to the Atascadero oversight committee meetings will be posted on the City’s Design Review Committee website the week of the meeting.  The Atascadero Climate Action Plan oversight committee will meet on Thursday, August 16, 2012 at City Hall, Council Chambers, 6907 El Camino Real, Atascadero, at 3:30 P.M.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the City of Atascadero Community Development Department at 470-3448.

Fees:

Fees for applications are due, in full, at the time of permit submittal. Frequently, the department is asked what is covered in the Planning Fees. Our fees cover Planning Staff's time to review and process an application, which typically include Staff's time to review a project against local, state and federal law, the composition of a staff report, and a public hearing. The more complicated the entitlement project, the higher the fee is.

Please contact the Planning Department at (805) 461-5035 to learn more about fees.
