Subject: Fwd: Growth without Gridlock in Sunnyvale, this Wednesday

Hi everyone,

This looks like a great panel discussion - this Wednesday evening - on
growth without gridlock in the South Bay. Please forward to others you
think may be interested!

Via a group I belong to, I heard of this discussion being held TONIGHT, and
it seemed it might be very relevant to Menlo Park's development plans.
Just thought I would forward the information, so even though, it's late
notice, someone from the Council or staff might be able to attend.

*Growth Without Gridlock - Sunnyvale, August 27*

In Sunnyvale on Wednesday, August 27, a panel of experts will share and
discuss emerging practices in our area regarding how cities, employers, and
housing developments are addressing traffic and parking issues by
encouraging less driving.

Sunnyvale has been an early leader with the Moffett Park Business and
Transportation Association coordinating to reduce vehicle trips in the
area. San Jose is moving toward creating a Transportation Management
Association (TMA) forDowntown/Diridon area to reduce car trips, Mountain
View is getting its TMA under way for the North Bayshore and Whisman areas,
and Palo Alto is moving forward with plans. TransForm is coming out with
rich new data showing less parking in housing located in areas near
transit, with practices implemented by developers including First Community
Housing and many others.

The session will be a panel discussion including people with expertise
about how cities, employers, and residential developments are addressing
traffic and parking issues. Come and learn whether and how it is possible
to have "growth without gridlock".

Panel Participants:
Trudi Ryan, City of Sunnyvale
Martin Alkire, City of Mountain View
Jeff Oberdorfer, First Community Housing
Ann Cheng, TransForm

Wednesday, August 27, 7-8:30 PM
