      City of Palo Alto, Department of Planning and Community Environment

      Symposium: "Implementation of New Urbanism Through Zoning"

      On Friday afternoon, July 18, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., the Planning Staff is
      hosting a Community Symposium in the Council Chambers, Civic Center at 250
      Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto. The focus of the symposium is to provide more
      exposure to the principles of New Urbanism and the concepts of developing
      prototypes for a form based zoning code for three new land use types; Mixed
      Use, Transit Oriented Residential and Village Residential. A guest speaker,
      Mr. Rick Cole, will review the principles of New Urbanism for the first half
      hour of the symposium.

      Mr. Cole has been the City Manager of Azusa since June 1998. Called �one of
      Southern California�s most visionary planning thinkers� by the Los Angeles
      Times, he previously was the Southern California Director of the Local
      Government Commission. His views on new urbanism and community development
      issues have been published and quoted in magazines including Western Cities,
      Urban Land, Atlantic Monthly and Governing as well as newspapers like the
      Washington Post, New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. He has spoken
      at more than 400 national, state and regional conferences, including the
      National League of Cities, National Trust for Historic Preservation,
      American Planning Association and American Institute of Architects. He
      served from 1983 to 1995 on the City Council in Pasadena, including two
      years as Mayor. During his service in Pasadena, he was a leader in the
      revitalization of Old Pasadena and co-chaired their award-winning General
      Plan effort. He is a member of the International City-County Managers
      Association, the American Association of Public Administrators, the Congress
      for the New Urbanism and the Pacific Council on International Policy.

      After Mr. Cole, the Zoning Ordinance Update design team will then describe
      the Comprehensive Plan land use developments and present a visual tour of
      local sites that might serve as desirable prototypes for mixed use, transit
      oriented residential and village residential. The City's urban design firms
      of Van Meter Williams Pollock and Urbsworks will be teaming up for this
      presentation and discussion. The economic consultant, Strategic Economics,
      and parking consultant, Nelson/Nygaard, associates, will also make brief
      presentations to outline how economic and parking factors might be
      considered in the development of prototypes and form code.
