March 28th – Solving State Street’s Problems with Ideas from the Past

Our Walking Wednesdays season is kicked off by an examination of State Street’s past to find answers to the issues facing us today.  Join architect and Historic Landmarks Commissioner Anthony Grumbine to compare today’s State Street and the surrounding blocks, to what it looked like over the City’s history and how it developed to its current status.  Previous iterations of State Street included elements of urbanism such as multistory buildings, increased density, and even a streetcar.  Participants will consider the following question:  What inspirations from Santa Barbara’s historic roots can be used to create a more vibrant, safe, and economically healthy State Street?

Our walk starts at the entrance of El Paseo on State Street (near 812 State Street, Bryant & Sons Jewelers).

Fall Gathering in Pictures!

Our Fall Gathering fundraiser gala was a wonderfully successful evening of sharing stories, smiles and the joys of sustainable transportation efforts across Santa Barbara County.  No one epitomized that more than our annual Barry Siegel Award recipient, Ed France, Executive Director of the SB Bike Coalition and Bici Centro!  Our silent auction was a big hit, with an array of diverse auction items (generously donated from area businesses) going to the winning high bidders.  Take a look back at that night by ‘strolling’ through our photo slideshow!  Thanks to all those who attended and contributed to our best Fall Gathering yet!  Until next year, keep supporting the many sustainable transportation modes Santa Barbara has to offer!
