Call to action: support a PA pedestrian mall
Original post made by james thompson, University South, on May 15, 2009
i posted here last week, but i wanted to reiterate:
Imagine this: University Ave-- from the CalTrain to Waverley-- transformed into a pedestrian-only urban park complete with outdoor restaurants, street performances, community events, trees and gardens, and bike-friendly infrastructure.
This Initiative seeks to do more than just block University Ave. We aim to tear up the road and create a unified and truly beautiful community space. Cities all over the nation and Europe demonstrate the success of Pedestrian Malls. They revitalize business, encourage alternative transportation, and reinforce a sense of community. It's an all-win situation.
So join our effort to transform University Avenue into Palo Alto's community gathering place. Start by joining this group!
Cho's, beloved dim sum spot, to reopen in Los Altos
