In front of an engaged and enthusiastic audience at the 2015 TransForm Summit, the cities of San Mateo and Mountain View described the City of San Mateo Sustainable Streets Plan and the City of Mountain View El Camino Precise Plan. These planning projects, which reflect the Grand Boulevard Initiative Vision, can serve as models of successful outreach for other communities and organizations. Community leaders from Greenbelt Alliance and the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition also shared their lessons learned through these projects’ outreach processes. Overall, the panelists suggested the best way to have a meaningful impact is to submit well-researched comments at the appropriate time, attend community meetings, encourage fellow community members to attend meetings who have not attended in the past, and reach out to your elected officials. We were also excited to learn that a majority of the audience knew of the Grand Boulevard Initiative prior to the session. Our hard work in spreading the word about the Initiative is paying off! Take a look at the presentation. Big thanks to our panelists as well as our wonderful audience!
