For all those in favor of this idea as well as those who aren't, this meeting is for you to hear and to be heard.

Don't let this be a one sided effort, the naysayers will be there so should those who love the idea.

Palo Alto badly needs more child-safe crosstown Eastchester bicycle routes. Please get this done.

Not a lot of info on those attachments - does anyone have the link to the Matadero Bicycle Blvd. plan or related documents?

This is not to be confused with the Midtown creek trail proposal. Different subject.
