in Community/Featured/Headline/Infrastructure and

One of three pop-up events in Redwood City that will allow residents to provide feedback on plans for pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements on El Camino Real between Charter and Maple streets is set for Saturday, March 17.

Residents are encouraged to visit the first pop up at Target, 2485 El Camino Real, from 1 to 3 p.m.  March 17.

Future pop-up events will occur Wednesday, March 21 at BevMo, 1745 El Camino Real, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and also on Friday, April 13, at the Fair Oaks Community Center, 2600 Middlefield, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The city is developing conceptual drawings for the El Camino Real Corridor Plan, which was approved by City Council in December last year and will inform the designs (the above before/after images of Roosevelt Avenue appear in the Plan).

The plan, according to the city, aims to improve the El Camino real streetscape with a design that promotes walking, transit, bicycling, improves the atmosphere for businesses and also mitigates traffic congestion and increases parking options.

The pop up events mark the first stage of public outreach and will be followed by stakeholder interviews with community groups and neighborhood associations and an online survey. After that, conceptual designs will be drafted based upon community input and the El Camino Real Corridor Plan. Those designs will again be publicly vetted and revised based upon that community input before cost, funding and implementation steps are considered. The design study is expected to be completed by February next year.
