Community Workshop Series to Shape the Future of Downtown and El Camino Real

From November 1 to 7, 2016, the City of Millbrae hosted a series of community workshops to plan and design the future of downtown and El Camino Real.  The workshops brought residents, business owners, and City staff together to explore options, and provide “real time” input as the work unfolds. The community workshop series provided a unique opportunity for everyone who participated to be a mutual author of the General Plan and Priority Development Area (PDA) Specific Plan. The primary focus of the workshops was the Priority Development Area (PDA), which largely encompasses El Camino Real and Millbrae Avenue. The workshops also considered downtown and other areas of the city.
