City Seeks Input for Santa Monica Airport Conversion Project, Engagement Process Starts This Weekend

Residents Will Be at Various Stations to Engage With the Project Team, Listen to Discussions, Learn About Proposals and Share Insights

To foster community involvement and gather input for the Santa Monica Airport Conversion Project, the city of Santa Monica is set to launch its official community engagement process. The initiative will debut at a community event scheduled for Sunday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Clover Park.

The inaugural event will take the form of a community open house, designed to provide residents with various stations to engage with the project team, listen to discussions, learn about the proposed plans, and share their insights regarding the future of Santa Monica and the airport land.

This event marks the commencement of the anticipated 21-month community engagement process. The primary objective is to develop a preferred scenario for the future of the airport site, with a focus on creating a “Great Park” in alignment with the 2014 voter-approved Measure LC.

Upon approval by the City Council, the preferred scenario will guide the environmental review process mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act. Implementation is slated to commence post the cessation of airport operations on Dec. 31, 2028, as per the terms outlined in the 2017 Consent Decree with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Subsequent to the Clover Park event, Santa Monica’s contracted consultant team, spearheaded by Sasaki, will sustain community engagement efforts through participation in additional community events and venues.

For inquiries regarding the community engagement process, individuals are encouraged to reach out via email to TheFutureofSMO@santamonica.gov. Furthermore, the community engagement website, smacproject.com, offers an option to sign up for project updates via email.
