Menlo Park and El Camino Real: Past, Present, and Future
Join us for a presentation and discussion on the past, present, and future of El Camino Real. El Camino Real is the backbone of the Peninsula, as it connects historic downtowns and is rich in amenities, including large central parks, diverse 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 Real has changes a lot since it was first paved in 1912; where might it take us in the future? Join the conversation and share your thoughts with us!
Update: the application deadline has been extended to 5pm, Wednesday, October 12th, 2011.
The San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) is now accepting applications for participation in the Grand Boulevard Initiative’s Economic and Housing Opportunities (ECHO) Assessment - Phase II.
The ECHO Phase II Case Studies build upon ECHO Phase I (completed in December 2010) and are part of the Grand Boulevard Initiative’s “Removing Barriers to Sustainable Communities” project funded by a Department of Transportation (DOT) TIGER II Planning grant and local support. The ECHO Phase II Case Studies will address development scenarios and potential barriers, assess urban design strategies to achieve revitalization and redevelopment, and analyze multimodal access and circulation. The intent of the ECHO Phase II Case Studies is to create a common basis for understanding the effects of corridor-wide development patterns and streetscape enhancements and to develop corridor guidance for cities that address the “how to” of implementation.
Applications are due no later than 5pm, Wednesday, October 12th, 2011.
