High Speed Rail Community Update

Join Los Paseos Neighborhood Association for a community update on High Speed Rail. With the Draft 2018 Business Plan recently released, changes have been proposed for the entire alignment including the Monterey Corridor.. 

High Speed Rail Authority has proposed a new blended alignment for the entire length of San Jose in conjunction with expanded Caltrain service to Gilroy (similar to the blended system between San Francisco and Diridon). The City of San Jose Dept of Transportation has proposed two City-Generated Options (CGO) for the corridor instead of the blended system. 

High Speed Rail Authority, Caltrain and San Jose Dept of Transportation will be presenting information on these various new alignments. Come find out how these proposed changes would impact the Monterey Corridor. 

Thursday, June 14th
6:00 – 8:00 pm

District 2 Housing Town Hall Recap

Thought I would share the D2 office email that went out to subscribers regarding the Housing Town Hall meeting held on May 24, 2018 at the Southside Community Center addressing the following:

Santa Clara County is changing. Why?
  • Santa Clara County is projected to add 300,000 people (the equivalent of two Sunnyvales) over the next 10-15 years
  • Two-thirds of the population growth will come from people ages 65 and older – because people are living longer
  • Santa Clara County is becoming more urban to keep up with the demand of the population
  • We need to act urgently to prepare for our rapidly increasing and aging population

We must plan our City not for what we see now, but for the future

  • Rental rights and recent changes for tenants and landlords in San Jose
  • Rent Stabilization Program
  • Mobilehome Rent Ordinance
  • Apartment Rent Ordinance
  • Tenant Protection Ordinance
  • Ellis Act Ordinance

The Facebook live videocast of the meeting is available here.

The PowerPoint presentation entitled “Housing Department Know Your Rights” is available from the San Jose City website document library.

 

If you want to receive the D2 email directly, sign up on their Constant Contact mailing list. This link is subject to change, but can always be located on the official District 2 website on the City of San Jose site.

Electronic Speed Sign on Santa Teresa Blvd

Electronic Speed Signs was a proposed PB project to place electronic speed signs on the Santa Teresa Blvd and Monterey Highway corridors to warn drivers to slow down and reduce speed as they entered into urban neighborhood communities, rural speeds (50-55mph) reduce to local street speeds (40-45mph). Often, drivers fail to observe local street speeds after prolonged driving along a rural road.

Unfortunately, the electronic speed signs PB project did not receive enough votes to proceed after PB Round 2 voting. Fortunately, however, many community members persisted to voice concerns to the City of San Jose DOT. The DOT examined the issue for the Santa Teresa Blvd corridor, and addressed our concerns with the installation of a speed sign on northbound Santa Teresa Blvd past Tulare Hill before Bayliss Dr. The sign is currently inactive as of 4/15. Stay tuned. More details to be posted when we learn of an activation date.

Hopefully, this sign alerts drivers to their speed and aid in curtailing the rampant speeding along this roadway. Many thanks to all who collectively voiced their opinions to the City to help improve the traffic safety entering our neighborhood.
