Greenbelt Alliance: Daly City’s Mission Street Breakfast Forum

From Greenbelt Alliance:

Join us for breakfast on Thursday, July 26 from 7 to 9 a.m. at the Daly City War Memorial Community Center for a conversation about the future of Daly City’s Mission Street corridor. Our expert panelists will offer their insights about the corridor neighborhood’s potential from three different perspectives: economic development, urban design, and public health. Come share your opinions about how we can work together to improve the vitality of the Mission Street corridor.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from S.T. Mayer, Director of Health Policy & Planning at the San Mateo County Health System; Sujata Srivastava, Principal of Strategic Economics; and Rick Williams, Architect and Urban Designer from Van Meter, Williams, Pollack.

This project has been made possible in part by a grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
