Rethinking the Royal Road: One city at a time

El Camino has changed a lot since it was first paved in 1912; what will it look like in the future?

Greenbelt Alliance, in partnership with the Grand Boulevard Initiative, the San Mateo County Health System, and others, is hosting Walk the Talk forums to discuss how to shift a vision of walkable and thriving downtowns into real change for the better. Community residents, business owners, and other interested people are invited to listen and share ideas on El Camino Real’s potential in their neighborhood.

The next Walk the Talk Forum is in Menlo Park at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 26.

Kirsten Keith, the mayor of Menlo Park, will open the forum, followed by an introduction to “Healthy Communities and the Guiding Principles of the Grand Boulevard Initiative” by Jean Fraser, the chief of the San Mateo County Health System. Jessica Ter Schure, a principal at NelsonNygaard, will speak about “Green Transportation and Connectivity,” followed by a Q & A panel discussion with various local experts.

Residents will also get an opportunity to participate in a small group discussion with their neighbors and friends on the potential of El Camino Real. Click here to RSVP.
