The Mack Road Streetscape Design Charrette

The Mack Road Partnership requested California Sierra Chapter’s assistance with establishing a new direction for their future corridor improvements. This Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) was formed in 2011, and has conducted a number of stakeholder and community input sessions prior to the charrette.

The purpose of this session was to create quick design studies that focused on a variety of issues – lighting, intersections, signage, parking, gateways, and the Highway 99 interchange.

Approximately 20 ASLA members, designers, City employees, and public members investigated complete streets, green streets, and road diets during this spirited session at the AIA Central Valley gallery, in Sacramento.

The Partnership will use California Sierra’s work product, combined with the public input, to create a Draft Corridor Plan from which they can use to secure future funding.
