ECHO Phase I I Case Study Call for Projects Released

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.

Cities in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties that include El Camino Real (or Mission Street and The Alameda) are eligible to apply.

Applications are due no later than 5pm, Wednesday, October 12th, 2011.
