Roundtables Set for Connecting Palo Alto

Roundtables Set for Connecting Palo Alto

Connecting Palo Alto is holding a series of roundtables in November to help evaluate potential grade separation options at each of Palo Alto’s four Caltrain rail crossings at Churchill Avenue, Charleston Road, Meadow Drive and Palo Alto Avenue. One of the roundtable sessions will be devoted to discussing a tunnel and trench scenario.

With the electrification of Caltrain and potential High Speed Rail, we know there will be more trains traveling through our rail corridor. That’s why the public feedback on this issue is so important.

Mark your calendar for the roundtable discussions listed below:

  • Charleston Road and Meadow Drive
    Tuesday, November 14
    6 to 8 p.m.
    Mitchell Park Community Center
    El Palo Alto Room
    3700 Middlefield Road

  • Churchill Avenue
    Thursday, November 16
    6 to 8 p.m.

  • Trench and Tunnel Discussion

Please Note: The Trench and Tunnel discussion originally scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 30 has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict. A new date will be announced soon.

Attend one roundtable or as many as you’d like, and if you bring somebody new who hasn’t attended a previous community workshop you will receive a City of Palo Alto notebook and the heart-shaped “For the Love of Palo Alto” lapel pin! You can RSVP here:

The upcoming meetings for the Council’s Rail Committee are on Nov. 8 and Nov. 29 at 8 a.m. in the City Hall community meeting room. They will be discussing the roundtables and more.
