EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1

Executive Summary San Pedro is a city, home to many, and host to millions of visitors that pass through these streets. Gaffey Street, like so many other southland streets suffers from a lack of memorable identity, carries a huge volume of daily traffic and is more than a stellar location for new and existing business. With a view to the future we see both opportunities and challenges for Gaffey Street. At last, there is the political-will to re-balance the composition of streets in Los Angeles and provide for the needs of all users of our streets. Council District 15, under the leadership of Joe Buscaino, identified funding to address long-standing concerns about Gaffey Street. Council District 15 was seeking to establish a conceptual plan to guide future improvements to Gaffey Street, and create a positive street environment for residents and visitors to San Pedro. In October of 2013, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed his first Executive Order setting in motion the broad based initiative to revitalize Los Angeles streets, encompassing the City’s largest public asset, forming and reflecting the character of neighborhoods, and a defining component of the City. The Great Streets Initiative seeks to capitalize on these underutilized assets to support thriving neighborhoods. Core goals of the Great Streets Initiative are to: •

Increase economic activity

Improve access and mobility

Enhance neighborhood character

Provide for greater community engagement

Improve environmental resilience

Create a safer and more secure community

GAFFEY STREET TODAY Gaffey Street is one of two major north/south roadways that transect San Pedro and connect the western most neighborhoods and commercial areas of San Pedro, and the communities of the Palos Verdes Peninsula to the Harbor freeway and communities further east. The portion of Gaffey Street addressed in this initiative is from the Harbor freeway terminus just north of the iconic San Pedro pedestrian bridge extending to 13th Street. This area is approximately one mile in length and currently is comprised of four travel lanes and a center left turn lane (from 13th to 5th Street), where it transitions to six travel lanes with center left turn lane, from 5th to 1st Street). From 1st Street to the Harbor Freeway, Gaffey expands to seven travel lanes with a landscaped center median and restricted turning movements. Gaffey Street experiences Average Daily Trips TRAFFIC ON GAFFEY STREET (ADT) of roughly 60,000 between the Gaffey Street off-ramp and 1st Street, however ADT drops off significantly to 46,000 south of 2nd Street and drops to 33,000 south of 5th Street. This metric demonstrates driving patterns that disperse travel to other streets and southbound destinations.

By re-imagining the potential of vibrant streets to create transformed gathering places for Angelenos to come together, whether they travel by car, transit, bike or on foot. EXAMPLES OF PROPOSED WAYFINDING SIGNAGE CONCEPTUAL PLAN

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

OUTREACH Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) provided outreach management for the project. Under LANI’s guidance, a Project Steering Committee was formed that was comprised of area business owners, San Pedro residents, Neighborhood Council members, and City of Los Angeles staff. RRM Design Group (RRM) was selected through a competitive qualifications process by Steering Committee community members. Design team members met periodically with the Steering Committee to: share ideas; present design solutions being considered; and to debrief findings from community workshops. Three community workshops were conducted, as well as direct outreach to area businesses via neighborhood canvasing to involve community members and obtain their input on project features. In each of the workshops attendees were introduced to the goals, scope of work, and potential improvements to Gaffey Street. Attendees were asked to provide comments and their input was recorded for reference. A summary of workshop results is included in the Appendix. Two of the three workshops had modest attendance, 50 or less. A presentation to a combined Neighborhood Council Meeting had in excess of 150 attendees, and an estimated 80-100 people took time to engage, offer input, and understand the proposed improvements for Gaffey Street at the last community workshop held at the Warner-Grand Annex. Valuable dialog between staff, consultants and committee members helped shape the evolution of the conceptual streetscape plan and added detailed local awareness for identified issues following the public workshops. The generous donation of time and personal commitment from these volunteers is the reason that the Gaffey Conceptual Plan is truly responsive to the community character of San Pedro.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

PROPOSED SOLUTIONS The Gaffey Street Plan was born of a desire to create transformative change for the character of this important roadway in San Pedro. Past efforts, though well intended, have been predominantly cosmetic and have not resulted in the kind of lasting positive change long desired for Gaffey Street. Initial ideas presented looked at reshaping Gaffey Street through a combination of: •

Redirecting traffic to/from the Harbor freeway via alternative streets

Implementing a Road Diet from 5th Street to the freeway

Way-finding signage coordinated with Port of LA format

Pedestrian bulb-outs at corners

Permeable paving under street-side parking

Storm water infiltration and harvesting

Enhancements to all bus stops (shelter, lighting, seating, and trash receptacles)

Coordinated street furnishings (pedestrian lighting, benches, bike racks, trash receptacles, and bus shelters)

Drought resistant plants to conserve water use

Additional street trees (broad leaf and palm trees)

Accent trees leading into neighborhoods

Landscaped medians (selected locations)

Uniform sidewalk paving throughout

Public/ private partnership for a Transit Plaza at 13th and Gaffey Street

ENHANCED BUS STOPS AND COORDINATED FURNISHINGS

ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING AND UNIFORM PAVING

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

ACTIVATION PLAN A unique aspect of the plan is the installation of a temporary pop-up plaza at the San Pedro Regional Library. During the course of the process RRM became aware of a grant offered by Redbox (video rental kiosks); the purpose of the grant is to activate libraries as shared civic space. A plan concept was prepared that utilized modular furniture, re-purposed pallet tables, shade sails, and synthetic turf to temporarily transform the library parking lot into a popup plaza for library events and community activities. Redbox awarded 20 grants nationwide. On a Saturday morning in September 2014, volunteers from LAPD Harbor Division, Steering Committee Members, San Pedro Library staff, LANI, and RRM erected the pop-up plaza for the second community workshop. This Pop-up Plaza is now a community asset and is available for a variety of outdoor Library events such as movie nights, astronomy club and book sales. Through small interventions such as this, Gaffey Street can transform both its image and how it is used by the San Pedro Community. It is our hope that this demonstration of transformable civic space will become a seed of change for this community. This temporary pop-up plaza is available for use by the community at no cost. To reserve the pop-up plaza, contact the San Pedro Regional Library for times and conditions of use.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Gaffey Street Conceptual Plan reflects the collective opinions of this community and contains many important missing elements to change the context of Gaffey Street from an auto dominated thoroughfare into a street that better serves the needs of this community. The plan was inspired by the goals of the Great Streets Initiative, presented to the community of San Pedro for their valued input, and revised to best reflect this community’s demonstrated support for the project. It should be noted that a proposed Road Diet solution was presented to the community but it was not broadly supported by workshop attendees and ultimately eliminated from the final plan. The final Conceptual Plan was received by the community in February 2015 with great excitement from attendees seeing the design team’s response to their passionate collective voice. Many voiced their support in anticipation of Gaffey Street’s future transformation. This document contains budget estimates for the proposed improvements for use in procuring funding. Council District 15 and LA Great Streets staff will be seeking all available opportunities for funding sources from within existing city department budgets to support the many components of the Gaffey Street plan.

PROJECT CONTEXT & NEED

Project Context & Need Over many years San Pedro has endured both economic strife and robust success. As a port city adjacent to the largest seaport on the West Coast, this community has felt the effects of unprecedented growth in port activity. While the port has provided jobs to community members, the record profits the port has enjoyed have not been visited upon this community. Gaffey Street, like so many other southland streets suffers from a lack of memorable identity, carries a huge volume of daily traffic and is a less than a stellar location for new and existing business to survive. Business owners along Gaffey have expressed concerns about convenient parking, lack of mental health services for the homeless, minor theft issues, loitering, pedestrian safety, greater need for local jobs, unattractive landscaping, speeding, and traffic congestion. Residents have expressed similar concerns but also have described Gaffey as a “thoroughfare” and expressed “I want to get through the area as fast as I can…” All of this taken together creates the context for the conditions that exist today.

PROJECT CONTEXT & NEED

NEED FOR THIS PLAN Desire for change is a rallying cry, but change must come in many forms. Policies, behaviors, physical elements, and perceptions all contribute to how Gaffey Street is used by residents, business interests, patrons and visitors to San Pedro. Change can be difficult because fear of the unknown, uncertainty of potential outcomes, and doubt about realizing goals. All of these items contribute to a cynical view of being capable to affect such a monumental shift in changing a place from what it is; to what it can become. Gaffey Street Conceptual Plan covers approximately 1 mile in length comprised of 15 blocks. Throughout the project area it is predominantly a commercial/retail street with a very small amount of residential apartments on the south end. Vacant lots dominate as you exit the Harbor Freeway; these were once occupied by gas stations and small homes and are now surrounded by chain link fencing, setting a tone for Gaffey Street that is not very welcoming. This area carries a high volume of traffic exiting and entering the freeway and traveling further north on Gaffey Street. Continuing south, the street transitions to strip retail comprised of fast food, service businesses, and motels that dominate 1st to 5th Street. In this section of Gaffey Street there are 6 travel lanes with a center left turn lane, sporadic palm trees, and existing sidewalks that are 5 to 10 feet wide with many driveways fronting on the street. At 5th Street, the lane configuration changes to 4 lanes with on street parking, and the commercial mix also changes slightly to include grocery stores and a new Starbucks, but remains a service dominated corridor with several local restaurants. 10 foot wide sidewalks dominate along this section except for areas south of 10th Street where sidewalks average 6 feet wide. These conditions extend to 13th street where the project area terminates.

PROJECT CONTEXT & NEED

Some of the many challenges that must be addressed include serving the needs of this community, while transforming Gaffey Street to fulfill its true potential. With a view to the future we see both significant opportunities and vexing challenges for Gaffey Street. These apparent contradictions highlight questions we must ask: •

Will the community change driving habits if travel alternatives are feasible?

What will it take to catalyze a new development typology, preferably mixed-use?

Can city resources be focused on providing the necessary support to facilitate the identified change that is necessary?

GAFFEY STREET SERVES AS A BUSY PEDESTRIAN CORRIDOR

For too many years, streets have been viewed as the exclusive domain of vehicles. The result of this singular focus has resulted in mile after mile of roadways that do not adequately serve the communities they traverse. Now there appears to be the political-will to re-balance the composition of Gaffey Street and provide for all users (pedestrians, transit passengers, bicyclists, cars, and buses) and include beautiful landscape, sustainable infrastructure and attractive signage, with equal consideration for all! Other City of Los Angeles planning documents that have been developed with considerable community input and planning analysis shall be incorporated as revitalization proceeds, these include: •

PROJECT CONTEXT & NEED

SMALL BUSINESS & MARKET OVERVIEW Businesses along Gaffey Street appear to be predominately auto oriented with high a concentration of drive-thru fast food and local service oriented business, with some presence of national motel/hotel establishments and aging national retail tenants. That said, there are many local business that make up a significant portion of the retail mix along this street. As one drives southerly along Gaffey Street it is evident that long established dinner houses such as Babouch and local favorites such as the Omelette and Waffle Shop and Gaffey Street Diner do provide the framework for a strong local presence defined by unique business establishments. In observing the occupancy of existing conditions along Gaffey Street throughout 2014, it appears that vacant properties (abandoned or demolished buildings) are more heavily concentrated on the north end. One of these vacant parcels is owned by the City of Los Angeles and is slated to become the “Exit Park”, intended to provide a “5 second first impression” as motorists enter and leave San Pedro. At least two (2) vacant properties are processing plans for new construction; one proposes a 30 unit mixed-use apartment and the other proposes a gas station and minimarket, and both are located on the west side of Gaffey Street at Sepulveda. Other vacant or abandoned sites pose a visual blight, and until they develop it is suggested that temporary decorative fencing be placed around them to block views.

It does not appear that Gaffey Street suffers from a rampant vacancy issue. However there are several underutilized properties that have outlived their usefulness and are in need of redevelopment that embraces mixeduse. Gaffey Street was planned in a time when it was believed that the auto would always be the dominant form of transportation. This is no longer a valid approach to follow. If we plan for more cars we will surely get more cars. As a community we must want our traveled corridors to be representative of the communities they traverse, showing pride and values, and extending a welcoming impression by creating places people will want to visit. We must embrace new forms of development patterns. By doing this we send a signal to development interests that this corridor and the broader community along Gaffey Street are ready for new and exciting possibilities. Placing retail uses on active street frontage, locating parking in reduced amounts or shared in structures, and placing office uses or residential uses on upper floors is the future of development along corridors in the City of Los Angeles. Incorporating city-funded facade projects is suggested to improve aesthetics and increase economic development within San Pedro. When new development takes these actions, Gaffey Street will undergo a significant transformation. Eyes and feet will naturally be on the street around the clock, and activity in this new environment will stimulate new opportunities. Business entrepreneurs will recognize unmet needs and revitalization grows within this community.

In certain cases such as the vacant Social Security Building on the east side of Gaffey Street at Ofarrell, there is renewed interest in converting this property into mixeduse similar to the proposed mixed-use apartment across the street. The consultant team suggest that Council District 15 work with property owners and area non-profit entities to mitigate these conditions by: •

Facilitating property acquisition of the Social Security Building

Identify funding for erecting temporary fencing to screen vacant properties

Complete the Exit Park as soon as possible.

EXISTING VACANT BUILDING ALONG GAFFEY STREET GAFFEY STREET


PROJECT CONTEXT & NEED

This approach for growing business, retail, and commercial vitality along Gaffey Street is not mandated. It is a force of market conditions that appear evident. In preparing this Conceptual Plan the consultant team wants to impart on the community of San Pedro the empowerment to recognize these trends as they are evolving, and position this community to receive the greatest benefit from the coming transformation. To achieve this goal we recommend preparation of a Specific Plan to guide and provide incentives for development to the area from the 110 Freeway off ramps to 2nd Street. This will provide a framework for properties along this portion of Gaffey Street to be developed to their highest and best use. By incentivizing development through the planning mechanism of a Specific Plan, an emphasis on creating high quality mixed-use development with ample public benefit space that should include linear plazas, green spaces, and tree lined pedestrian promenades built along the active street edge would yield a transformed street environment and address certain necessary modifications to the problematic 1st Street traffic light signaling and the resulting traffic congestion. If implemented, this would also serve to reduce travel times along Gaffey Street, which was a heartfelt request made by this community and factored into this plan.

BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT FORMATION The property owners and businesses along Gaffey Street would likely benefit from the formation of a Business Improvement District, commonly referred to as a BID. Significant additional research is recommended to be explored before a decision is made on which method of BID formation is best for Gaffey Street property owners and business interests. When property owners and business interests organize around a mutually beneficial plan identifying programs, promotions, and maintenance that deliver special benefits to the identified district, noticeable improvements in physical conditions and the perception of the district can be positively impacted. A BID creates a self-assessment mechanism that commits a predesignated amount collected by the city as an assessment on behalf of the BID community. Revenues are controlled by the BID and spent on approved supplemental services typically not provided by traditional city services, or to enhance limited city services such as tree trimming. Some other examples of supplemental services provided by BID’s noted below: •

Clean-up of trash

Landscape maintenance

Promotions/Advertising for district events, celebrations, sales

Private security staff/area “Ambassadors”

Sponsoring Farmers Market or Makers Markets within the designated district

PORTION OF THE CONTEXT DIAGRAM CONCEPTUAL PLAN

PROJECT CONTEXT & NEED

To form a BID, two groups need to come together to start a bid. First, a non-profit needs to be identified to manage preparation of a feasibility study to determine if conditions exist that are likely to result in successful formation of the BID. For Gaffey Street this could be the existing San Pedro Property Owners Alliance (which currently just focuses on downtown), or some other group having an interest. Second, a consulting team would need to be hired to prepare the feasibility study and a subsequent management plan focused on setting up the BID and prepare the petition and documentation to meet the necessary legal requirements. If the BID voting is successful, a Property Owners BID would require 50% +1 for approval. The feasibility team concludes their involvement, and the non-profit formed to manage the BID assumes day to day management and all fiduciary responsibilities during the term of the BID. Typically BIDs are approved for a prescribed term requiring voting renewal (50%+1) at the end of the term. A future Gaffey BID could hire a group like Clean San Pedro to provide supplemental maintenance for the newly formed BID. The fee assessment for each property owner is based on square footage of developed property and can vary widely; the bid feasibility team is responsible for setting up the equation to determine the fee assessment and to publish this amount in the disclosure required by law. The cost to prepare the feasibility study can typically run from $50,000 to $75,000 depending on scope and complexity. Often, this money comes from Council Offices, which can use discretionary funds to set up a business improvement district. For Gaffey Street we recommend that Council District 15 allocate future discretionary funds for a BID Feasibility Study as soon as possible. This process can take up to two years to get a BID in place. Championing this step in the process should be a priority of Steering Committee members following conclusion of the Gaffey Street Conceptual Plan process. The City Clerk maintains a list of qualified consultants to prepare BID formation plans.

GAFFEY STREET


ANALYSIS

3

Analysis The Gaffey Street Conceptual Plan study area is composed of the segment of Gaffey Street from the I-110 to 13th Street. The City of Los Angeles’ draft Mobility Element identifies Gaffey Street as a Boulevard II (north of 9th Street) and as an Avenue II. Gaffey Street provides direct access to the I-110 Freeway and State Route (SR) 47, in addition to many local roadways surrounding the study area. Gaffey Street is also included in the Transit Enhanced Network and Neighborhood Enhanced Network. •

The Transit Enhanced Network (TEN) seeks to improve the performance and reliability of existing and future bus service. TENs include improvements to existing transit routes such as: infrastructure, signal timing, and stop enhancements.

The Neighborhood Enhanced Network (NEN) includes a network of local streets that are comfortable for bicycling and can also serve local neighborhood pedestrian connectivity. NENs are anticipated to be enhanced with street calming that can include, but are not limited to: bump outs, ample sidewalks and street trees.

Gaffey Street is a north-south roadway with signalized and unsignalized intersections, and left-turn pockets provided at intersections south of Santa Cruz Street. Gaffey Street spans the entire study area with several uncontrolled marked crosswalks and bus stops, and is a main access point for San Pedro, areas of the Port of Los Angeles, and coastal areas on the south and west of the peninsula. Within the study area Gaffey Street includes six travel lanes north of 5th Street and four travel lanes south of 5th Street.

CONCEPTUAL PLAN

GAFFEY STREET

Between the I-110 and Santa Cruz Street there is a raised landscaped median that prevents left-turns. A pedestrian bridge is located between Ofarrell Street and the I-110 Gaffey Ramps that provides an east-west crossing for Gaffey Street. The grid street pattern and relatively short north-south blocks allow for a high level of multi-modal accessibility in the study area. Gaffey Street is generally lined with commercial land uses. Some developments have a pedestrian-oriented streetscape up to the sidewalk. Other areas are more auto-oriented with large parking lots fronting Gaffey Street and building entrances setback from the sidewalk.

ANALYSIS

EXISTING CONDITIONS AND DATA COLLECTION The Gaffey Street Conceptual Plan existing conditions and data collection effort focused on the following components: 1. Vehicular volumes and travel times: As shown below, counts and travel time data were collected along the corridor and adjacent streets to understand the level of activity and local circulation patterns. Travel time runs were conducted during the morning peak period (7:00AM – 9:00AM) and generally ranged between three and six minutes in both the northbound and southbound directions between I-110 and 13th Street. Vehicle volumes on Gaffey Street have a range from approximately 65,000 vehicles north of 1st Street to approximately 33,000 vehicles south of 9th Street – nearly a 50% reduction in vehicle volume. A substantial amount of vehicles (approximately 15,000-20,000 vehicles) divert at 1st Street to areas west of Gaffey Street. Current signal phasing requirements at this location cause delays in vehicle movement. LADOT should provide a preliminary analysis of the necessary right-of-way acquisition that would be required to facilitate improved vehicle movement through this intersection.

2. Pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle-involved collisions: As shown to the right, an analysis of reported collisions was conducted for Gaffey Street covering the three year period between 2009 and 2011. During this time there were: •

Three reported collisions involving pedestrians and vehicles

Sixteen reported collisions involving bicycles and vehicles

Seventy-nine reported collisions involving vehicles only

While people walking and biking are more vulnerable road users, the greatest frequency of collisions exclusively involve vehicles. Review of collision data also showed that of collisions involving bicyclists or pedestrians, 19% of collisions involved individuals 10-18 years old and 24% of collisions involved individuals between 4655 years old, comprising nearly half of all bicycle or pedestrian involved collisions in the study area.

3. Sidewalk width and condition: Sidewalk width and condition vary along Gaffey Street. Both aspects of the sidewalk are generally suitable for pedestrian travel and ADA-compliance; however, they may preclude additional sidewalk activity such as outdoor dining. At some locations tree wells limit the usable sidewalk width to approximately four feet. The sidewalk width varies from approximately five to 15 feet wide and includes numerous curb cuts to provide vehicular access to businesses along the corridor.

ANALYSIS

4. Marked crossing locations: Marked crosswalks are provided at all signalized locations in the study area. Marked crosswalks at locations without stop signs or signals are located throughout the corridor too, including at 6th Street, 10th Street, 11th Street (11th Street & Gaffey Street was signalized during the course of this effort), and 12th Street.

5. Multi-modal trip generators: Land uses along and surrounding the corridor were reviewed to identify locations likely to experience high numbers of people walking, biking, taking transit, and driving. Along Gaffey Street such locations include the San Pedro Regional Branch Library, and neighborhood serving commercial destinations such as Starbucks, Vons, and the Omelette and Waffle Shop. Additionally, there are at least two parks and four schools within a quarter mile of Gaffey Street that were observed to generate substantial pedestrian activity.

16

6. Walking audit and field observations of people driving, bicycling, walking, and taking transit on Gaffey Street: A walking audit was completed with local stakeholders, including residents, business owners, and city staff. Additionally, Fehr & Peers staff visited the study area on many occasions and at different times of day to observe user behavior and confirm roadway characteristics such as parking restrictions, number of lanes, turns restrictions, bus stop conditions, and other relevant information.

7. Transit Service: A review of local transit service was also conducted to identify bus-stop locations, service providers, and bus routes serving the area. Gaffey Street is served by the LADOT San Pedro DASH, LADOT Commuter Express 142, and Metro Line 550. Amenities at transit stops vary throughout the study area. Some stops only provide route signage, while at other locations seating, trash cans, and/or shade may be provided.

OUTREACH

Outreach Engaging San Pedro community members commenced in 2014 when LANI was contracted by Council District 15 to administer the project. Initial meetings with the council office identified project goals for the project in addition to possible community members, area business owners, and local organizations that were interested in participating in a community-driven process for this improvement project. Without the dedication of time and their commitment to transforming their community in positive ways, this project would not have been possible. Their contribution in making this plan uniquely San Pedro is evident throughout the plan.

CHAMPION...

LANI met with identified individuals and organizations to explain the scope of the project and the obligations expected of potential Steering Committee Members. Several candidates were identified and a meeting of the Steering Committee was held to brief committee members on next steps, including the Request for Qualifications (RFQ), issued on January 4, 2014. On January 28, 2014 LANI received ten (10) Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) in response to the RFQ solicitation. Committee members reviewed the proposals and selected 4 teams to interview. On March 11, 2014 the Steering Committee selected RRM Design Group (RRM) as the design consultant for the project.

OUTREACH

Defined in the approved Scope of Work, LANI and RRM identified three (3) community workshops for the purpose of informing community members of the project scope, intent and potential outcomes from this project, and to receive community input at each phase of the project. Community workshops were generally arranged into three sections: •

First, to explain what is and is not being addressed at the workshop and provide a general understanding of what attendees should expect to learn about the project

Second, to present the conditions, opportunities, constraints, and possible design solutions for addressing existing conditions

Third, to ask the community for any questions they may need clarified and to offer a forum for providing community input about the project, presentation, or scope of work being addressed

Information gathered from the workshops was categorized and evaluated in terms of support or opposition, and then factored into the possible design solutions going forward. As an example; initial response from the community for a possible Road Diet (5th Street to the Harbor Freeway) was favorable at the first two workshops, although they had a moderate attendance of about 50 attendees in each workshop. At a later meeting of the combined Neighborhood Councils in December of 2014, significant opposition for the Road Diet was expressed. Subsequently, the Road Diet was eliminated for that portion of the project.

OUTREACH

In conjunction with the Community Workshops, four (4) Steering Committee meetings were scheduled. These were used as a debrief session for the consultants to gain valued interpretation of workshop results and comments received. In these meetings key topics were discussed such as: congestion - real vs perceived, potential development intensity, community identity, circulation and connectivity in San Pedro, and future maintenance obligations of the project. This dialog provided meaningful insight to the entire team consisting of the consultant, city departments and council office representatives. The beneficial outcome of this process is a conceptual design plan for Gaffey Street that is responsive to community desires and concerns. The community has been provided several opportunities to participate in the development of the plan, and a community-driven process was utilized to incorporate the broadly held community sentiments and validations of the conceptual design plan components, goals, and methods.

Conceptual Plan Components & Strategies The design team utilized several methods to evaluate conditions on Gaffey Street. These consisted of review of the LADOT striping plans and other City of Los Angeles policies and standards. Additionally team members conducted a detailed walking audit and several realtime travel audits (13th Street to Harbor Freeway). These evaluation methods provided the team insights with regard to existing conditions and information on unrealized opportunities within the project area.

Following the initial investigation, a broad ranging list of possible interventions, alterations and improvements was prepared that note potential obstacles, benefits, and features (refer to the following abbreviated list, and note that a full list can be found in the Appendix).

CONCEPTUAL PLAN COMPONENTS & STRATEGIES

STRATEGIES A variety of strategies and potential improvements were considered for the Gaffey Street corridor based upon the identified needs for the project, data collected and analyzed, and public outreach to local stakeholders. Most of the issues observed by the project team or relayed by stakeholders focused on the following themes: •

Improving travel time and travel speeds for people driving

Enhancing the look, feel, and comfort of the Gaffey Street environment

Lack of on-street parking

Providing additional or enhanced infrastructure for people walking the corridor

Improving safety for all users

While there is no single option or solution that can effectively simultaneously address the issues listed above, a variety of strategies were considered on Gaffey Street. A brief list and overview of the options considered is provided below. Improving travel time and travel speeds for people driving • Reversible lanes: Reversible lanes were considered because they can help increase vehicle travel speeds. Reversible lanes work best when one direction of travel is substantially higher than the other; however, 24-hour counts on Gaffey Street demonstrated that the travel volumes are fairly balanced throughout this day, limiting the effectiveness of this approach. Additionally, this option is among the highest cost of the options evaluated. •

22

Signal coordination: Signal coordination can help increase travel times by allowing signals to operate in a dynamic fashion that allow them to collect data about travel patterns and adjust accordingly. This option is being pursued further with the assistance of LADOT.

Intersection widening: The intersection of 1st Street & Gaffey Street is a significant bottleneck due to the split phasing of this intersection and the substantial number of people driving who use 1st Street to reach areas west of Gaffey Street. Widening of this intersection requires the acquisition of property to allow for this improvement to be implemented.

Freeway ramp realignment or rerouting: Options to realign the freeway ramps away from Gaffey Street or direct traffic exiting and entering the I-110 freeway to other ramps such as those on Harbor Boulevard or Miraflores Avenue were reviewed. The realignment of the freeway ramps is a challenge due to cost, topography, and potential environmental impacts. Rerouting the ramps is a potential strategy; however, the recorded travel times and discussions with local stakeholders indicate Gaffey Street is the preferred freeway access route.

Enhancing the look, feel, and comfort of the Gaffey Street environment • Mini-medians: Mini medians can help beautify the area and improve safety by limiting conflicts between vehicles. •

Permeable pavers: Permeable pavers provide a visual differentiation between the travel and parking lane. Pavers help restore and filter groundwater, while also making additional funding sources available.

Sidewalk widening: Sidewalk widening was evaluated as on option for enhancing comfort along the corridor and encouraging potential activities such as outdoor dining. Sidewalk widening can’t be accomplished without modifying the roadway to remove a travel lane or parking. These ideas were considered and not carried forth for the final concept plan.

Lane reduction: The removal of a travel lane reduces conflicts between vehicles and travel speeds, thereby reducing the likelihood and severity of collisions. This option was eliminated from the plan. GAFFEY STREET


CONCEPTUAL PLAN COMPONENTS & STRATEGIES

Lack of on-street parking • Parking restrictions: Parking time limits are generally present on the corridor; therefore this option was anticipated to have limited additional effectiveness. •

Angled parking: Parking supply was identified by stakeholders as lacking in the corridor. The project team explored options to increase the parking supply through angled parking on Gaffey Street and perpendicular neighborhood streets. On Gaffey Street, this would require a lane reduction, which was not carried forward. Angled parking on neighborhood streets would increase parking supply. However, this option would also require converting the neighborhood streets to one-way circulation which could limit access and alter local circulation patterns.

CONCEPTUAL PLAN

Providing additional or enhanced infrastructure for people walking the corridor • Sidewalk widening: Sidewalk widening was evaluated as on option for enhancing comfort along the corridor and encouraging potential activities such as outdoor dining. Sidewalk widening can’t be accomplished without modifying the roadway to remove a travel lane or parking. These ideas were considered and not carried forth for the final concept plan. Pedestrian crossing beacons should be considered at uncontrolled marked crossings. Improving safety for all users • Lane reduction: The removal of a travel lane reduces conflicts between vehicles and travel speeds, thereby reducing the likelihood and severity of collisions. This option was eliminated from the plan.

PLAN COMPONENTS

Permeable Paving Under On-Street Parking: Located on both sides of the street from 5th Street to 12th Street, this feature intends to provide infiltration and capture of storm water. Due to existing soil conditions that may not be favorable to direct infiltration (potential high silt/clay content), and additional subsurface drainage to subsurface storage may be provided.

The design team evaluated the items within the Improvement Matrix and eliminated those that were either not feasible or were not appropriate for various reasons. The following list briefly outlines the plan components that have been included and describes strategies employed and the potential benefits we see resulting from the implementation of the conceptual streetscape plan. •

Bulb-outs: This feature is used to expand sidewalk areas at corners and serve to shorten the distance pedestrians must travel to cross streets. Planter areas and tree wells have been added to areas where existing red curb is designated further expanding the area of STREETSCAPE STREETSCAPE the bulb-outs.

CONCEPTUAL PLAN COMPONENTS & STRATEGIES


CONCEPTUAL PLAN COMPONENTS & STRATEGIES

Signal Sync: Coordinate traffic signals to allow traffic to travel at a steady rate and improve travel time. Signal timing can increase travel speed by 10% to 22%, and reduce travel time by 17% (Source: Rand Corp). We request that LADOT look into the possibility of future traffic signal coordination/ optimization, and the possibility of streamlining traffic signage for a more orderly appearance (such as eliminating unnecessary sign poles).

Bus Stop Enhancements: All bus stops should be furnished with a shelter, bench(s), lean rail (where appropriate) lighting, trash receptacle, and a bus schedule or real-time display. All bus stops are preferred locations for public art, with a special emphasis at 7th and Gaffey Streets. Making transit comfortable, easy to use, and safe increases ridership.

Transit Plaza: Located on the west side of Gaffey Street at the Vons Market, this transit plaza will serve intersecting bus routes. The transit plaza is envisioned as a tree-lined public plaza with numerous benches, bike lockers and racks, vending kiosks (with grocery essentials) that can be thought of as an extension of the nearby grocery store with just the basics for hurried commuters. The transit plaza will be integrated with, and adjacent to, future retail stores to be located on two additional pads near the intersection of 13th and Gaffey Streets.

Pavement Markings: Advanced warning pavement markings and high visibility continental crosswalks will be added to all side street locations at Gaffey Street. These elements increase awareness and visibility of pedestrians.

GAFFEY STREET CONCEPTUAL PLAN

SUMMERLAND TO SEPULVEDA Many residents expressed their desire to reduce travel times to and from this destination. Some residents acknowledged that alternative access points do exist and that creating a new vision for Gaffey Street that focuses on better places for people along Gaffey Street would be a welcome improvement to San Pedro’s community image, area commerce, and pedestrian environment of this corridor. No change in the existing lane configuration is proposed for this section of Gaffey Street. Improved pedestrian lighting, street furnishings, and landscape are features of the entire plan area.

SEPULVEDA

Serving as the terminus for the 110 Freeway this section of Gaffey Street is the primary “first impression” motorists perceive when arriving in San Pedro. Recently the pedestrian bridge has undergone a renovation that includes new accent lighting and refreshing the “San Pedro” sign, and other improvements including a mesh fencing material to deter past bootleg signs for birthdays and other messages being tied to the bridge.

GAFFEY STREET CONCEPTUAL PLAN

SEPULVEDA TO 2ND Along this segment, proposed extensions of the existing center median creates a strong linear focal point and opportunity for iconic tree planting. Strategic locations for asymmetrical bulb-outs and high visibility crosswalks provide shorter distances for pedestrians walking north/ south on Gaffey Street. Additional planters for trees entering neighborhoods on the east/west cross streets help create a sense of entry into residential neighborhoods.

Recent new development proposals indicate a shift in land use. At the corner of Sepulveda and Gaffey Street a 30 unit mixed-use apartment in planned. Other underutilized properties in the vicinity may soon transition from linear strip development to mixed-use since there are improved and established bus transit linkages and market forces are beginning to recognize the location and benefits that San Pedro offers to residents. Negotiation with future development proposals will need to resolve the lack of public right-of-way for pedestrians.

There are existing narrow sidewalks in this segment that are only 6’ wide and contain many obstructions such as utilities and bus shelters which encroach into the pedestrian path, causing single file walking in several areas.

2ND TO 6TH Currently defined by strip commercial uses, the 6 lane configuration of Gaffey Street transitions to 4 lanes at 5th Street. This section of Gaffey Street is defined by existing 10’ wide sidewalks, and existing palm trees line the street. Strategic locations for asymmetrical bulb-outs and high visibility crosswalks provide shorter distances for pedestrians walking north/south on Gaffey Street.

GAFFEY STREET CONCEPTUAL PLAN

6TH TO 10TH The overall context of Gaffey Street has now changed heading further south. On-street parking areas are recognizable due to the distinctive change in materials. Small center medians have been added to each block, continuing the strong linear focal point established at the 110 Freeway off ramps. Each corner possesses a twodirectional bulb-out, expanding sidewalk pedestrian space and planter areas for new landscape. High visibility crosswalks provide shorter distances for pedestrians walking north/south and east/west across Gaffey Street at controlled intersections.

In this section of the plan area a Pop-up-Plaza funded through Redbox as part of this project has become a multi-use civic space that the community can now make use of to activate Gaffey Street. Coordination with Los Angeles Public Library staff is required to reserve for community use. We recommend that the Pop-up-Plaza be deployed when the library is closed to avoid conflicts with limited Library parking. This arrangement leaves many opportunities for evening and Sunday community events.

GAFFEY STREET CONCEPTUAL PLAN

10TH TO 13TH Constrained by right-of-way along this section there is not enough space to continue use of the center medians and they have been eliminated. Sidewalks are at minimum width, 6’ in most areas. As opportunities arise we recommend every effort be made to remove barriers to access along this section. Tree well/planters have been added in the on-street parking area separating parked vehicles to adding trees without impeding pedestrian access. Between 12th and 13th Streets a suggested public/ private cooperation agreement is depicted.

Future retail/commercial pad development and adjoining transit plaza with quick vending kiosks for “grocery essentials” has been depicted as a catalytic transformation for this neighborhood grocery store. Parking removed from the parking lot to create the transit plaza and retail pads could be augmented by on-street angled parking added to 12th and 13th streets. Further refinement of this concept is necessary possibly providing off-street layover parking for transit vehicles.
