Community Notebook: Palo Alto meeting to focus on Embarcadero Road improvements

Public input sought for improving busy corridor, making it safer

The City of Palo Alto is hosting a second community meeting on Tuesday, March 15, to gather input from the public for the Embarcadero Road Corridor improvement project, which aims to improve the safety of motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users traveling between El Camino Real and High Street, according to an announcement.

The project will incorporate a variety of "best practices and innovative strategies to accomplish" the plan's goals, the announcement reads.

The meeting, which will be in an "open house" style (residents can stop by anytime between 6-8 p.m.), will take place in the Aspen Conference Room at the Palo Alto Unified School District Headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave.

The first meeting regarding the project was held last December.

The improvement I would most like to see that would improve safety on Embarcadero is people getting ticketed for going through red lights!

The stretch between El Camino and Middlefield is narrow and treacherous for cars and bicycles alike. When bike riding, I have been ticketed by PAPD for riding on the sidewalk. There is no bike lane, and apparently no room for one unless the road can be widened.

Please don't take ten years for the much-needed fixes!
