In anticipation of the planned South Gate Eco-Rapid Transit Station, the City of South Gate is preparing a Specific Plan (Plan) for the Gateway District, to establish a comprehensive vision for the future rail station area. The Plan is an opportunity for the City to create a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) which is mixed-use, pedestrian- and transit-focused. The Plan will define goals for a livable, vibrant, and pedestrian-friendly area, while accommodating vehicular, truck, bus and light rail transit traffic on Firestone Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue, one of the City’s busiest intersections. Through design and policy, the Plan would make it possible to introduce housing, shopping, entertainment, jobs, civic areas, and open spaces planned around the South Gate station.
The South Gate Station will link the city of South Gate to other employment regions, commercial areas, and residential neighborhoods along the Eco-Rapid Transit Corridor; of which the southern portion, from Downtown Los Angeles to the city of Artesia, is known as the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor (WSAB). The Eco-Rapid Transit Corridor spans 40-miles from Bob Hope Airport to the city of Artesia and will grant South Gate residents, business owners and visitors alike, increased access to local and regional bicycle routes and multi-purpose trails, and nearby transportation corridors, including Amtrak, Metrolink and Metro’s Blue, Gold, Green, Red and Purple Lines.
You are invited to participate in this exciting planning process by attending community workshops and offering your viewpoints on the Gateway District. Check back here to learn about the latest news regarding the Specific Plan and upcoming community workshops. We look forward to your participation in this process. The public review process will begin on June 14, 2017 and will end on August 1, 2017. The Gateway Specific Plan public review draft will be available at South Gate City Hall, Hollydale Library and the Weaver Library.
Background Planning Efforts
In 2013, the City of South Gate completed the Firestone and Atlantic Station Area Plan; a concept plan for the future Station. The City of South Gate has continued to team with OLDA/Eco- Rapid Transit Authority to continue to provide input into the WSAB development, including refinements to the future South Gate station plan. Thus far, recommendations for this gateway to South Gate have been shaped by community and stakeholder input as well as community engagement efforts of the 2009 General Plan and 2015 Zoning Code update. This Specific Plan effort will build on prior collaboration to refine the framework and establish a final Specific Plan document.
