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.

For those of you unable to attend the our meeting, please feel free to view the recorded session below. Pardon the breakout into 4 separate video. Some new hardware was obtained for this and still ironing out the bugs. Future recordings will hopefully go more smoothly. 🙂
Recently on Nextdoor, this was posted to the communities involved in the Bernal to Bailey Participatory Budgeting process. Round 2 for the remainder of the $1M Calpine grant is about to begin. Since not everyone is on Nextdoor, the notice is reposted on this forum which is readily accessible by those not on Nextdoor.
For those of you unable to attend the April 6th meeting I did record it on video (pardon some of the production issues as I was breaking in some new hardware) and made available here in 3 parts. There is no guarantee future meetings will be recorded/available. Member attendance and participation is absolutely critical, especially if we vote on issues that impact the community as a whole.
Part 1 – Opening LPNA business/issues, Captain Fong of SJPD Southern Division
Part 2 – Comments from Sergio Jimenez’s District 2 office, Presentation by Santa Clara County Board of Supervisor Mike Wasserman
Next Thursday will be our second meeting of the year. We are having more meetings this year, alternating between Saturday morning and Thursday evening. Meetings are every two months this year.
Included with the agenda is a draft letter to Mayor Sam Liccardo. The letter describes yearly online reporting as another way to address illegal fireworks in San Jose. The letter is being distributed to all Neighborhood Associations in District 2 for approval at NA meetings. As Chairman of the D2 Neighborhood Leadership Council, I intend to endorse the letter with a list of all NAs who approve it as shown. Please review the letter prior to the April 6 meeting. LPNA Members will vote for approval or disapproval at the April 6 meeting. Copies will be available at the meeting.
At this meeting we will have SJPD Captain Fong again. He will give us an update on San Jose Police Department and our neighborhood.
Also, Santa Clara County Supervisor Mike Wasserman (District 1 – our district) will give an update on Santa Clara County and its relationship to us in our neighborhood.
