Landscape Improvement Projects

LMAD Improvement Projects

In addition to maintaining the existing landscaped areas, various locations need periodic renovation improvements.  These renovation projects are funded annually from zone assessment funds when sufficient funding is available or when there are funds available from the City's General Fund reserves (which is approved by the City Council).

Median Renovation Project

Due to the recent prolonged drought, the State of California imposed statewide measures to remove all landscaped turf from street medians.  In 2017, after engaging in a year-long community outreach project, which included community meetings, landscape demonstration sites, community surveys, input from the Planning Commission, and City Council approval, the City began a new General Fund supported Capital Improvement Project (CIP) to renovate and transition nearly eleven acres of medians throughout the City.  Design concepts (PDF) were developed as part of this public input process. Consequently,  the City is replanting or “transitioning" its street medians from turf to drought tolerant landscaping in five project phases called the “Median Landscape Transition Program.”  These median landscape transition projects should be completed over the next two years.
