City of Madera
Downtown Main Street Project

Department Overview

The Engineering Division assists the public with many issues involving the City of Madera’s right-of-way. The right-of-way is any public sidewalk, street, avenue, alley, or public place in the City.

The City of Madera currently has no workable Downtown Specific Plan. Madera seeks to develop a downtown masterplan, beginning with a focus on State Route 145 (Yosemite Avenue) as this roadway traverses downtown, serving as the community’s “Main Street”. The Plan will utilize the Caltrans Smart Mobility Framework, Complete Streets elements, and build on a community-based arts center plan underway.

All components combined through a 19-month planning process by diverse leaders, residents, and organizations will result in Yosemite Avenue and the surrounding street-network unifying to serve as a well-planned complete street concept providing a sense of place for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
