El Camino Real Grand Boulevard Initiative: Walk the Talk forum
- January 26, 2012 - 6:00pm - 8:30pm
- Menlo Park Presbyterian Church Social Hall 700B Santa Cruz Avenue Menlo Park
El Camino Real is the backbone of the Peninsula. It connects historic downtowns and is rich in amenities such as large central parks, divers shopping opportunities and Caltrain, BART, and bus service. Yet El Camino Real has the potential to be so much more for those who live, work, and commute along it. By rethinking where homes and jobs are located, we can improve community health, support local businesses, and provide more options for getting around. El Camino has changed a lot since it was first paved in 1912; where might it take us in the future?
Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition is proud to support this effort to improve the performance, safety, and aesthetics of this vital corridor, to transform El Camino into a “grand boulevard of meaningful destinations.” We encourage you to join the conversation!
