A pedestrian haven at the intersection of Guerrero St and San Jose Ave
Once an unsafe intersection, San Jose Guerrero Plaza now offers a comfortable place for neighborhood residents to relax and move around. The Plaza was updated in October 2016 with fiberglass planters with a multicolored palette of drought-resistant plants and a ground mural that will help define the plaza area from Guerrero Street. The community will also establish a formal stewardship and maintenance plan for the space.
Vehicle speeding on Guerrero Street and San Jose Avenue had been a community concern for many years and resulted in a proposed series of improvements that aimed to increase neighborhood safety for pedestrians and cyclists. To address this issue, the intersection was closed-off and replaced with San Jose Guerrero Plaza. A two-way “cue-street” was also installed to give local residents easy access to the Plaza.
The project has undergone three phases and will culminate in the construction of a permanent plaza, as part of a Development Agreement with California Pacific Medical Center. See all project phases in project updates.
