      Transportation and Land Use Coalition's Sixth Annual Summit
      Funding a Sustainable Future

      Saturday, March 22
      10am � 2pm
      Laney College Forum, Oakland
      Keynote Speaker: Senator Barbara Boxer
      Closing Speaker: State Senator Don Perata

      There has never been a greater opportunity to fund sustainable transit,
      bicycle, pedestrian and affordable housing programs that will form the
      backbone of a sustainable Bay Area. By the end of 2004 up to $18 billion of
      new Bay Area transportation funding may become available from a bridge toll
      increase, county sales taxes, and the 2003 federal transportation bill.

      The Transportation and Land Use Coalition (TALC, formerly BATLUC) has been
      at the forefront of defining a new course for transportation investment in
      the Bay Area since 1997. Whether you are new to the Coalition or a long-time
      supporter, the Annual Summit in Oakland is a great place to learn about
      these issues and help strategize for successful campaigns. Break-out groups
      will tackle tough issues and prioritize Coalition strategies for 2003. There
      will also be time for people to meet with others from their county or
      sub-region to discuss local campaigns.

      Breakout groups will include:

      Transportation for a Livable Region: putting together our comprehensive
      vision

      Safe Routes to Transit: the new bicycle and pedestrian agenda

      TEA-3: a winning campaign for federal dollars

      Successful YIMBYs: a training for advocates of local smart growth

      Tolling for Dollars: building a campaign for a $1 bridge toll increase to
      fund transit

      �Just� Transportation: winning a Lifeline Transit Network and more
