“It’s important that we hear from our residents as we plan and prepare for the different modes of transportation that are coming to Palmdale,” said Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “That’s the best way for us to create the kind of future that works for everyone.”

“This corridor is going to be key as we build our future in Palmdale,” said Mayor Pro Tem Laura Bettencourt. “There are so many exciting things ahead of us that will be part of this such as a new airport, high speed rail, the High Desert Corridor and even light rail.”

 “We’re all excited to move forward on the Avenue Q corridor,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “Our new downtown will be born from all this, and so it’s vital that we hear from our residents.”

The Avenue Q Corridor study is being funded from a $250,000 grant provided through Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The funding is provided through SCAG’s Sustainable Communities Program for Regional Corridors. City staff will work with consultants from Toole Design to gather input from the community to draft the plan, which is anticipated to be completed in early 2022.
