Questions have been raised concerning how the Muriel Wright Center located in Santa Teresa County Park will operate when it re-opens in March of 2018. County Supervisor Wasserman addressed these questions and others at the end of the Measure A Bond meeting held February 22, 2018 at the South Side Community Center organized by San Jose Residents for Housing Solutions
The URLs referenced near the end of the Q&A have not been posted as of yet. We will update this post as that information becomes available.
On February 22, 2018, a local community group, San Jose Residents for Housing Solutions, held a meeting at Southside Community Center to have Supervisor Wasserman discuss government division of jurisdictions and how Measure A bond funds are being used to provide affordable housing in Santa Clara County. If you were unable to attend this meeting, you can view this informative discussion via the embedded video below.

For those unable to attend the Thursday night Q1 meeting for LPNA, the contents of the meeting were recorded on video. The topic covered at this meeting was the Evergreen Senior Homes Initiative with presentations from both project advocates as well as project opponents. This initiative will appear on the June ballot so it is imperative for the community to learn about this issue to make an informed decision at the polls.
If after viewing these videos, you wish to attend another public meeting on this issue to voice your concerns, STBNA will hold a public meeting on this same issue:
Location: Santa Teresa Public Library – Community Meeting Room
Date: February 26
Sponsored by the San Jose Residents for Housing Solutions
February 15th, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Santa Teresa Library, 290 International Cir, San Jose, CA 95119
All are welcome to learn about this controversial initiative for a development project in Evergreen. Why should you care about a development project in Evergreen? Because this initiative could have long-term and far-reaching implications for future development in San Jose, including Coyote Valley.
Both proponents and opponents will be presenting. Come and learn so that you can make an informed decision at the polls in June.

For those unable to attend the our meeting, please feel free to view the recorded session below. Still ironing out the bugs to the process, and definitely need to remember to detach the monitoring headset when stepping away from the camera, or else everything tends to follow you around, literally. 😀 So apologies for that mishap, but otherwise, the recording is presentable. The audio was not cleanly processed as I like, but due to time constraints to make this information available prior to the 12/12 City Council meeting, it will have to do.
The SPURS slide deck presentation is available for PDF download here
For those unable to attend the LPNA meeting on 12/7, SPUR supplied their presentation for review, see link below.
