Overview

Historic runoff from the Mountain Springs Creek watershed along with subsequent development of the urban areas over the course of several decades has resulted in frequent flooding, poor pavement, and inadequate facilities for bicycles and pedestrian traffic.

To remedy this, the City of Paso Robles in partnership with the Central Coast Low Impact Development (LID) Initiative and SvR Design Company (SvR) developed a conceptual design for a green/complete street and stormwater enhancement project along 21st Street between Vine Street and Riverside Avenue.

Cannon was selected to continue with the design and implementation of the project. The City’s goals for the project are to reduce the frequency and severity of street flooding, increase groundwater recharge, improve the quality of stormwater runoff reaching the Salinas River, sediment removal, reduction of traffic speeds with traffic calming devices, shade the street with trees, re-map the 100-yr corridor, and promote infill and redevelopment.
