Walk the Talk forum on Menlo Park and El Camino Real: Past, Present, and Future
El Camino has changed a lot since it was first paved in 1912; where might it take us in the future?
Imagine El Camino Real as a place where it is safe to walk or ride your bike, where new apartments openonto public plazas, sidewalk cafes and bustling shopping districts, and where the historic downtowns of cities like Menlo Park enjoy a renaissance.
You are invited
to a presentation and discussion on Thursday, January 26 on the future of El Camino Real, the backbone of the Peninsula. The thoroughfare has large central parks, civic gathering places and Caltrain, BART, and bus services yet it could 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.
There is an effort afoot to transform El Camino into a "grand boulevard of meaningful destinations."
