Creating a Better Place
The City of Grover Beach is undertaking several prominent projects to stimulate new investment, revitalize neighborhoods, and create a better place for people to live, work, and enjoy their lives. Your questions and comments are welcome. 

West Grand Avenue Enhancement Project, Phase 2 (8th Street - 11th Street) 
(Construction scheduled to be complete in Summer 2013)
Phase 2 of the West Grand Avenue Enhancement Project will consist of landscaped center medians, landscape irrigation and lighting, accessible corner ramps, sidewalk and street repairs, slurry sealing, and striping.

Grover Beach Lodge & Conference Center
Pacifica Companies Submits Planning Application. In February 2010, Pacifica Companies submitted a planning application to the City of Grover Beach for the Grover Beach Lodge and Conference Center. The project is located in the City of Grover Beach between the Pacific Ocean and State Highway One, at the end of West Grand Avenue. The approximately 13.4-acre project site is within Pismo State Beach and the property is owned by the State Department of Parks and Recreation.

The proposed project consists of a 150-room hotel with conference center and restaurant consisting of four buildings not to exceed 40 feet in height, totaling approximately 123,604 sq ft. The site would also include improvements to the existing public plaza area within the State Park, including new walkways and paths, redesign of the existing parking area, riparian enhancement to Meadow Creek and dune restoration. In addition, several interpretive displays would be provided for environmental education. The project proposes to relocate the existing equestrian parking area and the recreational vehicle sewer dump station. 
 
Environmental Impact Report. A Revised Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the proposed Grover Beach Lodge and Conference Center has been completed and is available for review or purchase at Grover Beach City Hall, Community Development Department, 154 South 8th Street, Grover Beach.

It is important to note that the above project description and site plan are subject to revisions as the project proceeds through the planning review process and public hearings.

Transit Station Expansion Project

The City of Grover Beach has completed the Transit Station Expansion Project: Final Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration. The proposed project will expand the existing Amtrak train station located at 180 West Grand Avenue, Grover Beach, to incorporate bus passenger loading/unloading areas, a bus shelter, approximately 40 additional parking spaces, and provide pedestrian and bicycle connections. A second phase would include the construction of an additional vehicle entrance and entry kiosk to the existing Coastal Dunes Recreational Vehicle (RV) Park operated by the County of San Luis Obispo.

West Grand Avenue Master Plan
The West Grand Avenue Master Plan establishes design guidelines for future development of public and private projects along the entire West Grand Avenue corridor from the beach to 260 feet east of Oak Park Boulevard and generally bounded by Ramona Avenue to the north and Rockaway Avenue to the south. The Plan implements the goals of the City’s General Plan to revitalize the corridor into a vibrant, economically sound, and pedestrian-oriented corridor.

West Grand Avenue Enhancement Project - "Beach Walk" (completed)
The West Grand Avenue Enhancement Project provides a focal point entry into our community and creates a strong visual and pedestrian connection between the future Grover Beach Lodge and Conference Center and the east side of Highway 1. It distinctly defines Grover Beach as a coastal community to visitors accessing Pismo State Beach and the dunes area at West Grand Avenue, as well as those traveling on Amtrak passenger rail or motorcoach service.

Grover Heights Elementary School - Safe Routes to School Project (completed)
The Safe Routes to School program creates practical projects to make routes safer for children to walk and bicycle to school with improvements such as sidewalks, lighted crosswalks, and new traffic striping. Funding is provided through the Safe Routes to School grant.

The project at Grover Heights Elementary School included construction of a retaining wall and sidewalk at the corner of Ritchie Road and North 8th Street, construction of small sections of sidewalk along Ritchie Road, installation of a lighted crosswalk at the intersection of North 4th Street and Atlantic City Avenue, and new traffic striping on Atlantic City Avenue between 4th Street and Oak Park Boulevard.
