      Be a part of the growing demand for a meaningful, environmentally
      sustainable quality of life.
      For decades we've struggled with a shortage of housing coupled with prices
      that remain unreachable for many; and a declining economic base for local
      governments and public agencies in the face of increased demands for
      services in our region. Imaginethe possibilities,gain valuableinsight,and
      learn more about transforming El Camino Real into a grand boulevard and a
      great community!
      Imagine new realities with our inspiring speakers.
      Michael Freedman, an internationally renowned urban planner, will
      provocatively state the case for this transformation. Will Kempton, head
      of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the owner of El
      Camino, will keynote the luncheon session and speak to Caltrans'
      leadership in developing context-sensitive solutions for our state
      highways. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo and Steve Heminger of the MTC will
      provide the federal and regional context.
      Join us on June 20 for a public forum on new choices for
      El Camino Real.
      Let's explore how El Camino Real can be remade into a world-class
      boulevard that achieves its full potential as a place for residents to
      work, live, shop and play that builds links between land-use and transit
      and is environmentally and economically sustainable.
      Please join the movement to transform El Camino and our community!
