About the Project: Our groundbreaking event marks the commencement of a visionary initiative that will enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike. The project has come together with collaboration from Clean California, SLOCOG, and Caltrans and encompasses the following key elements:
1. Community Gathering Space: The new community plaza will serve as a vibrant hub for gatherings, cultural events, and celebrations. Imagine picnics under the sun, live music echoing through the air, and laughter shared among friends and neighbors.
2. Promoting active transportation choices: The Caltrans design team developed the Oceano Plaza with the pedestrian and bicyclist access in mind. Although however anyone arrives to the Oceano Plaza, it can be enjoyed by the entire community.
3. Beautification of downtown Oceano: The Caltrans design team has thoughtfully incorporated the community's request for artful components that represent Oceano’s heritage and priorities.
4. Environmental Stewardship: The project includes native plant landscaping, solar-powered lighting, and eco-friendly amenities. We aim to preserve Oceano’s natural beauty for generations to come.

Join Us: We invite all Oceano residents, business owners, neighbors, and friends to witness history in the making. Bring your enthusiasm, your dreams, and your sense of wonder as we embark on this exciting new chapter.
