Public Participation Needed for Miracle Mile Improvement Project

$20 million renovation requests input from the public

For immediate release:

STOCKTON – Stockton’s Miracle Mile Improvement Project is now accepting applications for an Ad Hoc Work Group that will consider various ideas and make determinations on the proceedings of the project.

“Securing $20 million in last year’s State Budget for needed renovations to the historic Miracle Mile became a top priority of mine after meeting with local stakeholders and discussing pedestrian safety concerns,” said Assemblymember Carlos Villapudua (D-Stockton). “The public’s participation in this project will now be an important tool to ensure the community’s interests are best represented. Anyone who is interested in participating in this process that will help redevelop an important area of town should not hesitate to apply.”

Assemblymember Villapudua, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the City of Stockton, and local community members are partnering to form an Ad Hoc Work Group. The 21 individuals selected to serve in this Group will meet bi-weekly to discuss best practices, consider various perspectives, and identify appropriate methods to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety while encouraging the public to frequent the Miracle Mile area and its businesses.

Apply today to be a part of the Miracle Mile Improvement Project’s Ad Hoc Work Group. Recommendations from this group will be submitted to the City of Stockton to expend the awarded grant by a January 1, 2028 deadline.

Last year’s State Budget allocated $20 million for a Miracle Mile improvement project that will improve public safety and beautify the historic district of Stockton. The funding will go towards pedestrian crossings, cycling infrastructure, improved sidewalks, beautification, and other revitalization efforts.
