LPNA Quarterly Meeting Changed to August 27, 2020 7:00pm

Hi Neighbors,

You are invited to our next LPNA Quarterly Meeting on August 27th at 7:00 pm. Please
note, we have postponed the meeting from the original date of August 20th because
there is an important Town Hall meeting updating the Anderson Dam plans the same
night that we think many of our LPNA neighbors may want to attend (see info at the
bottom of the page).

We will be hosting the LPNA meeting via Zoom. If you are interested in joining
the LPNA meeting, please click this link to register to get the Zoom link. Click here to Register

Our main speaker will be Andrea Urton of HomeFirst. HomeFirst has been selected
as the vendor to run the Bridge Housing sites at Bernal and Monterey and also the
Rue Ferrari site. Andrea will be presenting the plan for the bridge housing and
will be able to answer questions on how the sites will be run and how issues will
be addressed. HomeFirst also runs the existing bridge housing site at Mabury and
she will give an overview of how that site has been doing since it opened at the
beginning of the year.

We will also be getting an update on what’s been going on in District 2 from the
District 2 Council office.

We hope you can join us.

Karen Lattin
VP LPNA

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing Shelter-In-Place (SIP) order issued by the Santa Clara County Health Department, this meeting did not occur in person at Los Paseos Elementary School. Instead, this was our first virtual meeting using Zoom conferencing. Hopefully, we can incorporate this technology in future meetings for those unable to attend meetings in person due to work, family, other commitments etc. If you cannot participate virtually, fear not! We have the recording here for your consumption to keep abreast of events impacting our community.

FAQ for Emergency Interim Housing

The City put together a FAQ from many of the emails they received regarding the subject matter (Interim Housing sites at Bernal/Monterey and Rue Ferarri/101). See the pdf file here.

If your questions are not addressed within the FAQ, or at the city website, here , please be sure to make comments at the meeting tonight.

Reminder: Zoom Town Hall tonight at 6;00 p.m. re subject matter.

Bridge Housing Community Locations

In reference to the Zoom Town Hall meeting on April 27, 2020. The topic of discussion is the Emergency Interim Housing Development located within District 2. Both sites are relatively close to our neighborhood as depicted below in a snapshot of Los Paseos marked in green. The proposed sites at Bernal/Monterey and Rue Ferrari/101 are marked in red.

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.
