Huntington Park Downtown Specific Plan
The City of Huntington Park selected RRM Design Group to prepare the Specific Plan for their Downtown Central Business District. Building upon flourishing redevelopment activities and demographic shifts toward Hispanic culture, the Plan uses community participation and TOD principles to establish an attractive, mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly environment to reduce reliance on automobiles and to provide housing close to shopping and employment. Acknowledging and addressing an extensive transit system, the Plan also balances regional and local-serving uses, buffers surrounding residential uses transitioning from low to higher density, and encourages a new sense of community ownership. The Plan also includes a streetscape and plaza master plan, designed to support the community’s festivals and shopping atmosphere and an extensive design guideline and signage standards for the public and private realm.
