Community Forum: Can downtown Palo Alto have growth without gridlock?
Original post made by Community Forum on Aug 12, 2013
People in Palo Alto enjoy the city as a great place to live, work and play. But steady growth in the downtown area over the last 15-20 years has created challenges especially around parking and transportation.
Is it possible to have growth without gridlock? Other places have wrestled with similar issues and developed innovative and environmentally sustainable new solutions. 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 Peninsula are facing similar issues so we're inviting people to attend in nearby communities as well.
