Car Free Streets Community Workshop: December 7

The City of Palo Alto is hosting an in-person interactive Community Workshop on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at 310 California Avenue (Performance Gains Gym) to discuss priorities, opportunities, and challenges of Palo Alto’s car-free streets: California Avenue between El Camino Real and Birch Street, and the half block of Ramona Street between University Avenue and Hamilton Avenue.

This community workshop will include a presentation on the Program’s background, the existing conditions, an update on where the Program is going, and a chance for you to share your experience and ideas to help shape a future study for the streets. This engagement effort is a part of the Uplift Local: Car-Free Streets, California Avenue and Ramona Street Program—a Council-supported initiative launched during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow for outdoor dining, retail, and personal services on certain portions of Ramona Street and California Avenue.
