Betsy and Horace-

I'd like to personally invite you to a presentation coming up on Sunday, May 17, at 1pm. Julie Flynn, an expert in tactical urbanism, will show how cities can road-test new road configurations and public spaces--helping familiarize the public with proposed changes and get important buy-in and feedback--before investing in expensive permanent projects.

Julie will arrive earlier in the day for a bike tour of Menlo Park and you are welcome to participate!

10:30am Meet at the Caltrain station in Menlo Park for the start of the bike tour, led by bicycle commission members.

1pm Julie will be at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center on Alma to give her presentation.

Tactical Urbanism in Menlo Park
May 17, Sunday, 1-2pm, at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center 's Cypress Room

Frustrated by traffic? Getting around town by foot or bike is a great idea, but our transportation network doesn't always accommodate it. Join us for an exciting talk by Julie Flynn of The Street Plans Collaborative
​ and learn about "tactical urbanism"— a city and citizen-led approach to neighborhood building using short-term, low-cost interventions to catalyze long-term changes. Flynn recently helped Morgan Hill pilot-test a protected bicycle lane through the town’s commercial center. She will share information about this project, as well as other success stories, to provide ideas for what we can do here in Menlo Park. Your RSVP at the link below is greatly appreciated, but not necessary to attend.


Looking forward to the day!

Vice Chair, Menlo Park Bicycle Commission
