Santa Monica: MANgo Meeting

This is the last public community meeting scheduled on the project before it is presented to Council on February 11. We would like to invite you to join us in support of this major community investment and hear first hand the benefits and concepts it proposes for the Pico Neighborhood, place making for people, connectivity for bikes and the Community at large.
