Pismo Beach Promenade and Pier Plaza Improvements
RRM Design Group created the comprehensive Urban Design Plan for a six-block waterfront area in downtown Pismo Beach. The Plan redesigned the famous Pismo Pier, destroyed by the floods of 1983 and then rebuilt in 1986 per this Plan. The Plan also included the Pismo Promenade, an elevated, lateral, wooden boardwalk on the waterfront requiring funds from the California Coastal Conservancy and Caltrans (ISTEA funds). RRM piloted public participation, collaboration with the Coastal Conservancy, design workshops, multi-agency coordination, and three-part phasing for Plan implementation. RRM also provided all background mapping, including topographic map, utility locations, boundary, title, legal descriptions, and determination of the mean high tide line to establish State Land Commission Jurisdiction.
