___________________

Our main speaker will be Don Weden, a former Santa Clara County principal planner for 34 years.  Mr. Weden will be presenting an enlightened and informative presentation on Envisioning Santa Clara County 3.0:  Growth & Change in Santa Clara County. 

With Santa Clara County’s population projected to increase by roughly 300,000 people in the next 15 years, the vast majority of that growth will be accommodated within existing urban areas, bringing major changes, challenges, and opportunities. Our aging population is creating pressures for changes to automobile-dependent land use patterns, and intensifying the need for a wider array of housing and mobility choices. Weden will share his wisdom and insights in an informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining presentation about change, growth, and planning as South Bay residents prepare for Santa Clara County, version 3.0.

We will also get an update on parks, crime and D2 Office.

Thanks to Crimson Blues for great music; to Brian the Bubble Guy for entertaining us with his magical bubbles; to our neighbor, Carlos, for providing the tables, chairs and canopies; and to all our volunteers who came out to support our event.  We could not make this event as special as it is without you.

Thanks also to all our community groups and vendors who participated by hosting an information table, and to all our Fire, Police, CHP and Sheriff’s officers who were there mingling with our neighbors and showing off their cool cars/trucks and equipment.  And finally, thanks to our sponsors who helped with the costs to put on this great event:
