The City of Carlsbad encourages you to provide input on city programs, services and issues. Members of the public may provide comments at City Council meetings, and meetings of city boards, commissions and committees. Find agendas for upcoming meetings on the "Meetings & Agendas" page of the city website, or sign up to be notified via email. You can also provide input on specific projects as they are being developed at publicinput.com/carlsbad.
Railroad Trench Project
Train trips through Carlsbad are expected to double over the next 15 years, cutting off access to and from the coast, Village and Barrio when trains pass through. The city is working with SANDAG and NCTD to explore the feasibility of lowering the tracks between Buena Vista Lagoon and the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, similar to the train tracks through Solana Beach. A public meeting is scheduled for November, followed by an online survey to gather input on this project.
City Hall & Civic Center Project
The Carlsbad City Council has made it a goal to break ground on a new city hall by 2023. The city recently completed an assessment of workplace needs and community priorities related to a new city hall and civic center. The next step is to use this information to create conceptual site plans for each of the four locations and seek feedback from the community in earl 2020. Find out more on the project webpage.
