Costa Mesa city officials are hosting a public meeting Wednesday evening about the future of East 19th Street.
The session begins at 6 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Kaiser Elementary School, 2130 Santa Ana Ave.
Officials are expected to gather input and discuss the future of the Eastside Costa Mesa thoroughfare, a roughly 1-mile stretch between Newport Boulevard and Irvine Avenue. The street is predominantly residential.
For more information about the meeting, call (714) 754-5185.
Last summer, the City Council approved an engineering design contract for East 19th that could lead to the addition of traffic-calming “chokers” — build-outs added to a road to make it narrower — similar to ones built along Broadway.
In November, officials discussed potential landscaping and conceptual plans for West 19th Street, a 1.5-mile stretch that contains businesses, strip malls and single-family homes.
