The City has evaluated and provided recommendations for the areas adjacent to the Mid-Coast trolley station at Balboa within the Pacific Beach and Clairemont Mesa community planning areas. The recommendations address the future form of development in light of the introduction of the Mid-Coast Light Rail Transit (LRT) Trolley extension. In addition to land use and urban design recommendations, mobility improvements throughout the area have been identified for bicyclists, pedestrians, vehicles, and transit users.
The Balboa Avenue Station Area Specific Plan builds upon the technical analysis and recommendations prepared and public input received throughout the process. The specific plan provides policies and recommendations that address land use, mobility, urban design, recreation, and conservation to enhance the Specific Plan area.
