Lucerne Redevelopment Concept:
The primary features of the design guidelines for Lucerne include the Promenade along the lake and Highway 20, from approximately First Street to Fourteenth Street, and a town center of retail, service and residential on Thirteenth Street. The County has rezoned the southern part of Thirteenth Street to be commercial, and is working on a specific plan of development to incorporate into the County's Shoreline Area Plan. The Promenade has gained prominence in our plans, both for redevelopment and as part of the County's strategic marketing plan. The County and the Redevelopment Agency have purchased several properties to add to Alpine and Lucerne Harbor Parks, which eventually will become part of the Promenade. The Lucerne Creek property between 8th and 9th Avenues was acquired by the County in 2006, and plans are underway to stablize the stream bank. Part of the concept in Lucerne is to encourage development of the Alpine Theme for structures.
