Visión Salinas

Project Description

With bold initiatives, Visión Salinas is a project that works to coordinate various key planning programs and activities into a unified focus on the future of Salinas. Visión Salinas is working to combine and strengthen several planning activities currently underway both citywide and in specific districts, bringing these under an overarching umbrella. Visión Salinas is ultimately a platform for various city departments and community partners to build a cohesive and accessible future vision that inspires and makes our community members proud to call Salinas home.

Not only will Visión Salinas act as a bridge between the City’s planning initiatives — it will also be the backbone to the City-wide bilingual community visioning and outreach effort, which will compile the input from residents to inform and guide the update of the General Plan in 2018.


The Three Plans

Visión Salinas consists of three bold plans, each working independently, yet collaboratively, to transform and strengthen the future of Salinas.

  • The Alisal Vibrancy Plan is an action-oriented and community-driven process to address challenges and opportunities in the Alisal/ East Salinas area.
  • The Chinatown Revitalization Plan is a community led process that builds on earlier visioning and planning programs to revitalize this Chinatown: a historic Salinas district, culturally, economically, and environmentally.
  • The Parks, Rec, & Libraries Master Plan focuses on the system of parks, open space, and recreational facilities and programs.
