GBI Walk the Talk Forum - Menlo Park - January 26th

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!

GBI Existing Conditions Report 2011 Released

The Grand Boulevard Task Force accepted the Grand Boulevard Initiative Existing Conditions Report 2011 at their November 30, 2011 meeting.  The Existing Conditions Report 2011 (2011 Report) updates the 2006 Grand Boulevard Initiative Existing Conditions Report to reflect the current conditions in the El Camino Real corridor and provides the most current demographic, land use, transportation, and planning/policy information.  The 2011 Report provides comparisons between 2000 and 2010 to show changes within the El Camino Real corridor and summarizes the current local corridor and regional planning efforts.  The intent is to provide a useful planning tool that contains consistent data across all jurisdictions in the El Camino Real corridor and provide a resource for future collaborative planning.
