  • The city is exploring ways to make a 3-mile stretch of south Carlsbad Boulevard more accessible to the community. 
  • The city worked on a pilot, grant-funded study for the first mile, from Manzano Drive to Island Way, focused on how to protect and adapt public infrastructure to climate change.
  • Staff completed the grant and are providing updates to the Beach Preservation Commission on April 2 and the City Council on April 23, 2024. 
  • At this time, the City Council has not directed staff to proceed with the next steps, which would include preliminary design and engineering of the 3-mile corridor, along with additional community engagement.
