Pismo Beach will hold a public workshop Thursday evening to gather input from the community to develop a vision and strategic plan that will guide future projects and changes to the city’s downtown area.

The Pismo Beach City Council; Planning Commission; Parking Advisory Committee; and parks, recreation and beautification committee will all attend the meeting, which starts at 6 p.m. at the Pismo Beach Veterans’ Memorial Hall, 780 Bello St.

Pismo Beach officials are trying to define a new vision for downtown — defined as the area bordered by the intersection of Dolliver Street (Highway 1) and Price Street, Highway 101, Pismo Creek and the ocean.

City staff and a consulting team from RRM Design Group of San Luis Obispo are using ideas raised at a November workshop to develop a draft vision statement and goals for downtown.

On Thursday, local residents and business owners can give further feedback and direction. After the workshop, staff and the consultants will develop a strategic plan.

The plan and a vision statement will then go before the various city advisory bodies before being heard by the council.
