Our Palo Alto 2030 the Summit Overview

Our Palo Alto 2030 Summit was held on May 30th, 2015. Over 350 Palo Alto residents, business people, community leaders, and elected officials gathered at Mitchell Park Community Center and worked in groups of 4-6 to weigh in on key issues related to Transportation, Growth Management, and Housing in a series of breakout sessions.

Information collected from the Summit will be compiled into themes, analyzed, and will be provided to the appointed Citizens Advisory Committee when they meet starting in mid-July.  The City Council will be involved at key stages in the process to ensure that their input is gained at the outset and that there are no surprises when the draft plan is presented at public hearings for adoption.

If you were not able to attend the Our Palo Alto 2030 Summit or participated and have more ideas, the City of Palo Alto has created another opportunity to share your vision on transportation, growth management and housing. First, view the full report on the Summit, then join the discussion online. The Virtual Summit will be “live” through the end of June, and your ideas will be shared with Palo Alto’s City Council and the Citizen Advisory Committee as part of the update to Palo Alto’s Comprehensive Plan.
