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!
