El Camino Real connects historic downtowns and features large parks, diverse shopping opportunities, and Caltrain, BART, and bus service. Please join us for the fourth workshop in a series on the Grand Boulevard Initiative, reimagining El Camino Real through the Peninsula. On Monday, April 30, we’ll discuss the needs and goals around this vital thoroughfare through Mountain View, and we want to hear from you.

We will be joined by world renowned community planning and revitalizationexpert, Michael Freedman, Founder of Freedman Tung + Sasaki. Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide input on how to make El Camino Real a more walkable, vibrant street!

This event is free but registration is required. Don’t miss this chance to participate in a conversation about Mountain View.
