The City of Santa Monica is scheduled to hold the second of two workshops regarding the city’s industrial districts Thursday, October 25th.

The Industrial Lands workshop will be held at Lincoln Middle School, 1501 California Ave., Santa Monica. Registration is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. and the program will start at 6:30 p.m.

While the first workshop focused on areas of stability and potential change, this workshop will focus on principles to guide future development, opportunities to improve travel around the city and options related to the anticipated Expo Light Rail project, according to city officials.

At the workshop, visitors will also have an opportunity to participate in a discussion on conceptual plans to guide development and public benefits over the next 20 years in the areas around rail stations, including Bergamot Station and other industrial areas.

The industrial areas are generally bounded by Centinela Avenue, the Santa Monica Freeway (Interstate 10), Lincoln Boulevard and Colorado Avenue/Broadway. The workshop continues the city Planning and Community Development Department’s series of community workshops towards developing new Land Use and Circulation Elements (LUCE) to guide the city for the next 20 years.

The workshop is open to the public, including residents, the business community and employees working in the city.

Participants are requested to reserve at (310) 458-8341 or to ensure an accurate refreshment count.
