Things Will Be Great When You're Downtown

12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Downtowns are important places for cities. They can be centers of commerce and civic life and places for people to work, live and congregate. Plans for downtowns can help to build on many of the assets that these neighborhoods already have — transit is one example — while protecting the things that make downtowns great. Come hear from the planners who have helped to develop and implement plans for three of the Bay Area’s most successful downtowns: Berkeley, Redwood City and San Francisco. Co-presented by Northern California APA.
