      This is a friendly reminder about this week's Forum presentation...

       

      El Camino Real: Can a Declining Main Street Become a Grand Boulevard?

       

      Wednesday, April 7, 2004 

      6:00pm to 7:45pm

      The Little Fox Theatre, Downtown Redwood City

       

      Communities By Design (CBD), a local nonprofit training and education organization, and the City of Redwood City will be holding another exciting educational forum on urban design on Wednesday, April 7, from 6:00 - 7:45 pm in Redwood City, CA. A flier for the event is attached.

       

      Jointly produced by CBD and Redwood City, the goal of "The Forum at Redwood City" is to provide an on-going venue for professional-level education and dialogue about urban design issues. The Forum series is bringing the top names is the world of city design and planning to the Bay Area to discuss today's hottest topics and most cutting-edge techniques.

       

      The fifth event in this exciting series will feature a presentation on "El Camino Real: Can a Declining Main Street Become a Grand Boulevard?" A presentation will be made by one of California's most talented urban designers, Mr. Terry Bottomley. Mr. Bottomley has over 20 years of preparing development master plans, design guidelines, concept designs, and construction drawings for streets and public spaces.

       

      I have also enclosed for your use summary notes from the last guest speaker at the Forum, Mr. Geoff Ferrell, who spoke on "Design Charrettes: A Public Participation Tool for Integrating Community Values into Design."

       

      The fee for the Forum is $10 (payable at the door, checks or cash). The Forum will be held at the fabulous Little Fox Theatre*, located at 2209 Broadway in rapidly revitalizing Downtown Redwood City. Click here for directions.

       

      The presentation and discussion will be followed by an optional, no-host dinner at a nearby restaurant in downtown Redwood City, so that interested individuals can join the guest speaker and other Forum participants for continued discussion and dialogue.

       

      The target audience for the Forum includes planning directors, planning commissioners, city managers, and city council members from cities throughout the Bay Area, as well as urban designers, architects, planners, traffic engineers, and community leaders from the region. Students and faculty from planning and design programs are also encouraged to attend and will find the material very stimulating.

                                                                                                                               

      Please help us "get the word out" about this exciting event by sharing this information with your staff and colleagues who might be interested in attending.
