Event: Saturday, 8/17 – Growth Without Gridlock for Palo Alto?

Steady growth in downtown Palo Alto over the last 15-20 years has created challenges especially around parking and transportation.

Is it possible for downtown Palo Alto to have growth without gridlock? Other places have wrestled with similar issues and developed innovative solutions to use transit more and drive less.  Palo Alto Green Planning Action is hosting a community forum to learn from a panel of professional transportation experts who are shaping the best practices of managing growth without gridlock.

Are these practices relevant to Palo Alto and other nearby communities? Multiple cities on the Caltrain corridor are facing similar issues so this will be interesting even if you’re not in Palo Alto.

Date: Saturday August 17, 2013
Time: 1-2:30p
Location: Avenidas Senior Center – La Comida
450 Bryant Street Palo Alto (short walk from Palo Alto Caltrain)
