Call to action: support a PA pedestrian mall
Original post made by james thompson 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!
