Reconfiguring city streets so people can get around Carlsbad as easily and safely as possible is one of the key priorities in the city’s General Plan.

Since the plan was adopted in 2015, city staff have completed several street improvements along Tamarack Avenue. The city is now ready to proceed with a more permanent change to the character of Tamarack between Carlsbad Village Drive and Carlsbad Boulevard. 

Another city plan, the Sustainable Mobility Plan, approved by the City Council in 2021, outlines how the major transportation and mobility policies in the city’s General Plan will be achieved through specific projects and programs. The plan identifies Tamarack as one of several “transformative corridors” that will provide a network of high-quality bikeways, walking paths and transit services.

The Tamarack Avenue Complete Streets Plan will differ from recent street improvements in a few important ways:

  • Tamarack will be considered holistically, rather than focusing on certain intersections and small segments
  • Physical improvements will be more effective than the interim measures in influencing safe behaviors by all road users
  • The community will have an opportunity to participate in the design process from the very beginning
