ADELINE CORRIDOR WORKSHOP: TRANSPORTATION
Complete Streets 101 – Placemaking, Mobility and Parking, Saturday, April 16

Berkeley, California (Monday, April 11, 2016) - Learn the basics of what makes a "complete street" at a Saturday workshop, another piece of the City's efforts to provide resources for residents seeking to create a vision for the Adeline Corridor. 

"Complete streets" are for everyone: designed and built so people of all ages and abilities can move easily and safely by foot, bicycle, transit or car.  In California, planning for complete streets is now required by law.  

The Adeline Corridor planning process allows the community to rethink and redesign the streets to achieve its goals. Designing streets to provide for a wider range of transportation choices can advance racial and social equity. They can protect against climate change by encouraging alternate modes, like walking, bicycling or mass transit.  Streets can also be great places public spaces where people can meet, socialize, play, and more. Like a neighborhood living room.

The presentation will be led by Jeff Tumlin, a director of the transportation consulting firm, Nelson\Nygaard. He will provide background about complete streets: what they are, why they matter and what opportunities there are for making the South Shattuck and Adeline more safe and comfortable places for people.

Staff from the City of Berkeley, BART and AC Transit will also provide information about how they plan for complete streets and neighborhoods.  Following the speakers, there will be time for questions and an "open house" where workshop attendees can visit various information tables staffed by the speakers and have one-on-one discussions with the speakers.

The session is being organized by Planning Department staff, who continue to lead an extensive, outreach effort to mobilize community members to develop a collective vision for the Adeline Corridor. City staff have organized dozens of community meetings, walking/bike tours, and other events to increase knowledge and awareness. During this process, community members expressed an interest in learning more about core issues such as affordable housing, zoning and transportation. In response, the Planning Department created this and other sessions to help residents along the Adeline Corridor better participate in the planning process. In its current phase, the Adeline Corridor planning process involves developing a range of land use and circulation alternatives to achieve the community's goals for the area.
