Vallejo Waterfront Master Plan

Location: Vallejo, CA


As part of a pro bono effort, PGAdesign provided a conceptual master plan that re-imagined the City of Vallejo’s waterfront from Independence Park to the Vallejo Yacht Club.

The conceptual master plan responded to a proposal by artist Mario Chiodo and the Vallejo mayor to place large artwork and gateway sculptures along the waterfront. Artwork of this size needed to carefully integrate with future site uses. The City had yet to fully envision coming utilizations, so PGAdesign prepared a conceptual master plan to engage the community and stimulate thought and discussion about how to best embrace the full potential of this unique City asset.

In addition to specifying locations for the large-scale art pieces, PGAdesign’s conceptual master plan re-imagined uses for the space to include a multi-use field, better water access, a food truck court, an arts and crafts fair space, bike trail connections, an outdoor theater, exercise equipment, benches and picnic opportunities, sports fields, a children’s play area, and a nature walk.
