Are you interested in supporting transportation alternatives and transit-friendly land use? Would you like to help educate others and foster change by reporting on these issues for the Peninsula (between San Francisco and San Jose)?
Then come on over and share your untold stories about current developments in alternative transportation and sustainable land use on the San Francisco Peninsula!
There's a lot going on, and plenty of opportunity to make a difference. The example stories below came from local residents like you who are paying attention to important decisions that will improve conditions for walking, bicycling, and transit - or the opposite.
Come meet up on the outdoor patio of Angelica's, 863 Main St, Redwood City on Thursday, May 16 at 6 pm, have a refreshment of your choice, and chat about how we can analyze and report on the important transportation and land use decisions being made in our communities.
Look forward to seeing you there!
