Greenbelt Alliance: Great Streets with Professor Allan Jacobs

From Greenbelt Alliance:

Building healthy communities, one block at a time

Join us for the next Healthy Communities Forum to learn about the world’s best streets and the characteristics that make them great from Allan Jacobs, Professor Emeritus of City & Regional Planning and Urban Design at UC Berkeley. Professor Jacobs has surveyed street users and studied a wide array of urban spaces from around the world to identify what makes certain streets more memorable and attractive than others.

This is timely, as the City of San Jose is currently beginning urban village planning, focusing on streets such as West San Carlos, South Bascom, and The Alameda. Streets are places for meeting neighbors, riding your bike, and grabbing some dinner. When they are designed well, the neighborhood thrives. Come learn and share your own ideas about how San Jose can become a city with great streets for all!

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided for your consumption.

RSVP now!!!

This forum has been organized by Greenbelt Alliance and the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter. Have a question? Email Michele Beasley.
