"To someone circling the block looking for a space, nothing seems like a more personal transportation challenge than parking. But in addition to being a local issue, every car, parking space, meter and curb in the Bay Area comprises a much larger regional challenge—as planners try to accommodate all modes of movement (cars, transit, bicycles and pedestrians) while also attempting to reduce driving in the region. Join us for a discussion of how we can resolve this tension between local needs and regional aims. With Redwood City Downtown Development Coordinator Dan Zack, and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s Valerie Knepper and Doug Johnson."
