Last night I attended Greenbelt Alliance's Grow Smart Bay Area event, which featured a panel of experts who discussed the critical next steps that the city should take in order to protect its open spaces and maintain its vibrant neighborhoods--all while making them more bikable and walkable, of course.
It was very interesting, thanks Greenbelt--it's wonderful to have excellent partners working on land use planning and other issues that certainly affect cycling mode share.
The panelists included:
Jeremy Madsen, Executive Director, Greenbelt Alliance
Carl Guardino, President and CEO, Silicon Valley Leadership Group
Ask Kalra, Councilmember, City of San Jose, District 2
Christopher Meany, Partner, Wilson Meany Sullivan
Dayana M. Salazar, Chair and Professor, San Jose State University, Urban and Regional Planning
Teresa Alvarado, Principal. Morado Consulting (moderator)
