El Camino Real Grand Boulevard Initiative Forum

10:14 AM PDT on June 8, 2009

"Be a part of the growing demand for a meaningful, environmentally sustainable quality of life.

For decades we've struggled with a shortage of housing coupled with prices that remain unreachable for many; and a declining economic base for local governments and public agencies in the face of increased demands for services in our region. Imagine the possibilities, gain valuableinsight, and learn more about transforming El Camino Real into a grand boulevard and a great community!

Imagine new realities with our inspiring speakers.

Michael Freedman, an internationally renowned urban planner, will provocatively state the case for this transformation. Will Kempton, head of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the owner of El Camino, will keynote the luncheon session and speak to Caltrans' leadership in developing context-sensitive solutions for our state highways. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo and Steve Heminger of the MTC will provide the federal and regional context.

Join us on June 20 for a public forum on new choices for El Camino Real.

Let's explore how El Camino Real can be remade into a world-class boulevard that achieves its full potential as a place for residents to work, live, shop and play that builds links between land-use and transit and is environmentally and economically sustainable."
