The city of Atascadero is seeking input on how to make downtown more safe for people biking and walking as part of the El Camino Downtown Traffic Calming and Corridor Plan.

The final two days of input at the city’s Open House events will take place this week.

Proposals include reducing the speed limit and the number of lanes on El Camino Real from Highway 41 to Rosario Avenue. The city is also looking to increase the number of parking spots, adding more diagonal spaces.

Open House events:

Tuesday 10 a.m. -1 p.m. at City Hall, 4th Floor

Wednesday 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. at Sunken Gardens, Farmers market

City Council is expected to see a final draft of the plan sometime this summer.
