INTRODUCTION 17j —Bob Jones Bicycle Trail Connection The City of Pismo Beach,building on recent planning efforts including `,,o the Pismo Beach Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and Shell Beach Road N xi Streetscape Phase 1,has initiated a project to create a"Complete Street" 9/4'or A O running through the City from its northern boundary to Grover Beach at 1; the south. The project area ("the Corridor"),consisting of Shell Beach /�a%o Complete Streets Plan #1171n Road,Price Street and Dolliver Street(Hwy. 1),extends approximately 5 r —i miles through the Cityof Pismo Beach,west of Highway 101. This route gg Y is a major north south connector through the City Its character changes Z as it passes through several distinct neighborhoods and zones,from a primarily residential area at the north end,through a neighborhood com- mercial district(Shell Beach),past a number of hotels,parks and tourist ' = Sh serving facilities on Price Street,through Pismo Beach's downtown,and ���//Bea south along Dolliver past senior communities RV parks and State Park _��ch y land to Grover Beach. /o/iii The City of Pismo Beach seeks to improve the project area for bicyclists he//,s, =a and pedestrians,making it a more"Complete Street."
