Miracle Mile Ad Hoc Workgroup Hosts Second Public Meeting

Business Development, Safe Mobility Become Focus of Conversation

For immediate release:

STOCKTON – The Ad Hoc Workgroup for Stockton’s Miracle Mile Improvement Project hosted their second public meeting this evening. These forums provide an opportunity for the community to help shape the redevelopment of Stockton’s historic district.

“I want to thank everyone who came out tonight to participate in this public discourse,” said Assemblymember Carlos Villapudua (D-Stockton). “Through these collective discussions, we can ensure the Miracle Mile Ad Hoc Workgroup pursues the appropriate channels and methods that best meet the needs of the community.”

The Ad Hoc Workgroup tonight provided an update on ideas generated so far by the different subcommittees: Business Development, Civil Improvements, Community Engagement, Mobility, and Security & Lighting. These updates gave way to a public comment period that allowed members of the community to provide additional ideas for the Improvement Project.

Participants broke out into small groups for brainstorm sessions. They then shared their various proposals with the meeting at large. Many ideas that were shared centered around the best use of public space, attractiveness of the Miracle Mile, and security for businesses and pedestrians.

“Transparency, accountability, and public participation remain top priorities of the Ad Hoc Workgroup,” said Villapudua. “I am proud of the steps we are taking to guarantee the public at large remain involved and informed on the developments of the Project.”

The next public meeting for the Ad Hoc Workgroup is scheduled for Wednesday, January 24, 2024.
