About 50 residents got a taste of what the city faces in trying to upgrade Beach Boulevard and Edinger Avenue, as they listened to consultants and spoke their mind at a recent meeting designed to capture public opinion. As the first of four workshops meant to get an idea of what residents want the sometimes stagnant areas to look like in the future, the May 10 meeting was not meant to include specific options and plans. That's what the later workshops are for. But consultants' opinion of the range of possibilities came off loud and clear: better architecture, probably more condo and apartment complexes, and slowly getting retailers more concentrated into districts and centers.

At issue: The city is seeking the community's opinion on ways to revamp Beach Boulevard. Since Beach Boulevard is the major thoroughfare and main entrance to Huntington Beach, it should have a sense of arrival with that look that tells you that the beach is just down the street ("Seeking a street revamp," Oct. 21). Many communities have successfully used entrance monuments in addition to lush landscaping. Landscaping the medians with stately palms, tropical plants and signs to welcome visitors would be a good idea.
