dc.description.abstract This study examines pedestrian malls in the downtowns of cities in Southern California, the impacts which they have had on the surrounding environments, and the lessons these spaces offer us. This study applies a more holistic definition of “success” by analyzing factors indicative of social, economic, and recreational success. This is accomplished through three case studies: The Main Street Pedestrian Mall in Riverside, the Second Street Mall in Pomona, and The Paseo in Pasadena. Factors that were analyzed include population data, median household income data, land use data, the amenities provided, the aesthetics, the ambiance, pedestrian activity, and regional trade areas. This was accomplished by obtaining data from site visits, literature review, United States Census Bureau data, and Google Maps. The findings demonstrated that each pedestrian mall had unique lessons to offer and that pedestrian malls are not one-size-fits-all solutions. Pedestrian malls were found to offer a wide array of benefits including spaces to socially interact, to recreate, to build community, and to establish community identity. A main lesson was derived from each pedestrian mall. Second Street demonstrates that a space does not have to be active twenty-four hours a day, the Main Street Pedestrian Mall demonstrates that cities should not give up on their pedestrian malls if they do not flourish, and lastly The Paseo demonstrates that pedestrian malls and amenities can also be privately owner but utilized by the public. A list of pedestrian resources; including pedestrian malls, paseos, and shopping centers is provided in Tables 3.1 to 3.11. This, of course, is by no means a definitive list. en
