Grand Boulevard Initiative (GBI)

Grand Boulevard Initiative (GBI) is a plan for redevelopment of El Camino Real from Daly City to San Jose that stresses collaboration between two counties and 19 cities, along with numerous other private and public agencies, in order to realize a regional vision that links land use and transportation. The GBI hopes to reduce climate change by supporting smart land use practices that will reduce the number and length of trips in single occupancy vehicles and encourage the use of public transit. Both Los Altos and Mountain View have agreed to the principles of GBI and have council representatives on the GBI Task Force that was formed in 2006.
