      Dear Stephanie,
      Ryan Avent
      Economist correspondent and author Ryan Avent will speak on stimulating the economy via better placemaking.
      In today’s uneasy economic times, both CEOs and policymakers are searching for ways to maintain that special advantage that will set our region apart from the world’s competition. What are the proven solutions local governments can turn to so they can bolster existing businesses and attract new investment?
      Greenbelt Alliance has long advocated to address many challenges and preserve what is special about the Bay Area through better placemaking.
      Please join us on April 19 for “Building a Jobs-Rich Region: A Conversation with Ryan Avent,” a special event about the Bay Area’s economic outlook. Ryan Avent, economics correspondent for The Economist and author of The Gated City, will speak with Carl Guardino, President and CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, about the Bay Area’s future and what the region can do to remain on the cutting-edge.
      This event is co-sponsored by Silicon Valley Leadership Group, the Urban Studies Program at Stanford University, and the Bill Lane Center for the American West at Stanford University.

          Hi Irvin:

          Thanks for your note.  I will be attending the Greenbelt Alliance meeting.

          I hope the Rail Corridor Task Force does well.   We really need HSR in California and an effective connection to the Peninsula and San Francisco.  I was also hoping that the HSR would provide the opportunity and the funding to eliminate the present Caltrain barrier that divides so many communities.  Unfortunately, most of the discussion is about resisting change rather than using change to make the Peninsula a more livable place.

            Bruce,
            Hopefully you'll give some feedback on the GA meeting at Stanford on the Ayent presentation.
            Re. the rail corridor task force, do note that we are pretty divorced from HSR.
            While we started with a relationship to HSR, planning staff and council made it clear they don't want us to dealing with those issue - which will remain the province of the council's rail committee.
            SPEAKING of which - they meet tomorrow morning - I hope to attend:

            THURSDAY, MARCH 22
            City Council Rail Committee Meeting, 8:30 AM, council conference room

            1. Roll Call
            2. Oral Communications
            3. Report from the Professional Evaluation Group, Inc.
            4. Legislative Positions and Testimony
            5. Status of Proposed Memorandum of Understanding Between Caltrain and CHSRA
            6. Reports on Meetings
            - California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) Board
            - Peninsula Cities Consortium (PCC) 
            - State Senate Committee of March 13 in Mountain View

            Bruce and others - did you attend the state hearing held last week in Mtn View on HSR convened by Simitian?
            Kudos to Joe on scheduling it there and allowing everyone to comment.
