Connecting Palo Alto is Convening a Community Advisory Panel

June 27, 2018 – Applications are now being accepted to serve on the Connecting Palo Alto Community Advisory Panel.

Connecting Palo Alto is a community-based process to address long-standing challenges associated with at-grade crossings on the Caltrain corridor that runs through the community.

As part of the community outreach and engagement process, the City’s project team is convening a Community Advisory Panel (CAP) of up to a dozen community members to advise the team on project ideas and outreach opportunities. The CAP’s responsibilities will be to connect with other community members/neighbors to help inform the process; amplify both decisions and concerns along the way, and to advise on what grade separation alternatives are best for Palo Alto.

The project team is looking for members who represent a diversity of thought and neighborhood/geographic representation.

The group is anticipated to begin meeting in August and would meet up to six times during the six-month process. Meetings will be held in the late afternoon/early evening and include these tentative dates: August 15, September 19, October 10, November 7 (others TBD).

To apply, and for more information, please fill out the application form.

Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on July 16, 2018. Submit your application via email to or by mail to the City of Palo Alto – Transportation Division – 250 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94301.
