Project Timeline

The goal of ConnectOrinda is to identify projects with broad community support.  Its main objectives are to:

  • Connect the two sides of downtown for all users
  • Support future pedestrian access along San Pablo Creek
  • Preserve Orinda's unique sense of place
  • Produce grant-eligible projects that can be funded
  • Beautify downtown Orinda
  • Build consensus for the final plan through robust community engagement

Community input is key to ConnectOrinda’s success. This Briefing Booklet is an important tool to prepare interested community members to participate.  Opportunities to participate include general and map-based surveys; info tables at the Farmers’ Market, food trucks and other community events; self-guided walking tours; and three community- wide events:

  • Project Launch: Saturday, October 13, 10am-2pm, Library Plaza
  • Workshop: January 2019
