Pomona Downtown Specific Plan Update
Downtown Pomona is the cultural, civic, and historic heart of the City, surrounding the increasingly popular Downtown Pomona Transit Station. Funded by a Metro Transit-Oriented Development Planning Grant, RRM Design Group was retained by the City of Pomona to update the existing
1994 Downtown Specific Plan to support transit-oriented development and further implement the 2014 General Plan vision for a vibrant downtown. Grant goals include improving mobility, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and enhancing sustainability. Key themes include eliminating contradictory regulations, improving ease of use, coordinating with the concurrent Zoning Code Update, enhancing Downtown identity and placemaking, and updating development regulations, implementation actions, and incentives to align with market-driven revitalization. Stakeholder meetings, community workshops, study sessions, and associated website supported the development of the updated plan.
