The Dumbarton Dialogue Project Engages Local Residents to Find Transportation Solutions
Redwood City , CA – September 15, 2006 - Redwood City residents and business owners are invited to participate in a new civic engagement project designed to identify possible solutions for traffic impacts in their city generated from the Dumbarton Bridge and the Highway 101 corridor. The Dumbarton Dialogue Project is a civic engagement program designed to augment the regional transportation agency’s (C/CAG) 2020 Peninsula Gateway Corridor Study. This study will lead to the development of a 20-year traffic plan along the freeway corridor from Redwood City to Mountain View.
In order for the best plan to evolve from the study, Redwood City residents, business operators, neighborhood associations and others are encouraged to participate in the Dumbarton Dialogue Project. The kickoff meeting for Redwood City participants will be on Thursday, September 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Fair Oaks Community Center, 2600 Middlefield Road, Redwood City, in rooms 4 and 5.
Participants in this community education project will look at long-term solutions and possibilities for managing the traffic impacts in the City stemming from the Dumbarton Bridge and the Highway 101 corridor. Cities participating in the Dumbarton Dialogue Project are East Palo Alto, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Redwood City and Mountain View. The Dumbarton Dialogue Project will give participants the unique opportunity to look at their specific local concerns and interests in a forum that ultimately will lead to representatives from all six participating cities participating in a cross-jurisdictional planning process.
Individuals participating in the project will be residents, business owners, environmentalists, non-profit directors, civic leaders and others from each of the participating cities. Each city will have an initial kickoff, ultimately joining with the other cities in a cross-jurisdictional discussion and further refinement of a plan of action for regionaltransportation planners. Participation in the Dumbarton Dialogue Project is a way to make sure that local residents have input.
