  • Transit Area Specific Plan Environmental Impact Report (SCH No. 2015121020)

    The Lynwood Transit Area Specific Plan includes policies and development standards to guide the development of future transit-oriented communities within the 315-acre project area, which generally encompasses properties located along Long Beach Boulevard, from Virginia Ave. to Norton Ave., along Imperial Highway from Alameda Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., the Plaza Mexico Shopping Center, the Long Beach Boulevard Green Line Station and Long Beach Boulevard/I-105 Freeway Ramps, the industrial uses along Alameda Street and existing residential and commercial uses located along Beechwood Ave., Sanborn Ave., Mulford Ave., and California Ave.

The Specific Plan concentrates and prioritizes development of key opportunity sites along major roadway corridors, existing industrial and hospital districts, and existing neighborhoods. In addition, the Specific Plan is intended to facilitate transit oriented community design by promoting complete streets, expanded transit services, and enhanced pedestrian and bicycle linkages throughout the project area.  Full implementation of the Specific Plan during the 25-year planning period envisions an increased density and intensity of existing land uses.

On September 6, 2016 at a regularly scheduled Council meeting, The Lynwood Transit Area Specific Plan and Environmental Impact report was adopted by unanimous vote at the conclusion of the requisite Public Hearing.
