Celebrate 29 years of East Palo Alto!

Do you like parades?  How about fireworks?

East Palo Alto will be celebrating its 29th birthday in grand style on Saturday, June 30th.  And you’re invited!

Come visit the East Palo Alto 101 Team

Helping celebrate 29 years of East Palo Alto, our team will be on hand to share information with the public about the East Palo Alto Highway 101 Pedestrian & Bicycle Overpass.  We’re working hard to incorporate the public’s comments from our first community open house & workshop, and we want to get even more feedback this Saturday.  We hope to unveil updated concepts at the East Palo Alto birthday celebration.

We also still need more input from the public on this vital project.  So please, share your ideas, hopes, and concerns with us about the project.  If visiting with us on the 30th won’t work for you, you can always submit your comments to us online.

June 7th Meeting Recap: East Palo Alto 101 Gets Started on the Right Foot

As we mentioned in our post earlier this month, the East Palo Alto 101 team held an open house and public workshop for the community on June 7th.  We got to share our initial concepts with the public and gain a lot of insightful comments from community members.  If you want to follow along at home, you can take a look at our initial concepts and the report from June 7th’s meeting on our Documents page.

Community members learned about the current options for the 101 overpass and gave their invaluable input to the project team.

We want to use the community’s input to refine and expand our ideas, and this was only the first of many chances for the community to make their voice heard.  We’ll be staffing a table at the celebration of East Palo Alto’s 29th birthday on June 30th.  Come for the parade; stay to share your ideas about the East Palo Alto 101 Overpass.
