Don’t miss our next General Meeting on August 16th from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Santa Teresa Branch Library.
At this meeting, a fascinating presentation on the changing Santa Clara County!
Hope to see you at the meeting.
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.

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.

At the Los Paseos Neighborhood Association (LPNA) meeting on Thursday, May 17 (7pm at the Santa Teresa Library), we will discuss a project to paint “Art Boxes” at each of the two main entrances to the Los Paseos Neighborhood. These are the traffic light control boxes in front of Fire Station 27 and on Avenida Espana in front of Martin Murphy Middle School. Through the 2018 BeautifySJ grant program, LPNA has received funding to complete this project. A similar project was proposed in the previous Participatory Budget Process, but it was not funded then.
We are in the process of collecting ideas for the art work and, with the help of an art advisor for the City, selecting a professional artist or artists to do the painting. We will need community volunteers for a day of prep work on the boxes and for follow-up/monitoring after they are painted. If you are interested in the project, but not able to attend the meeting on Thursday, please send an email to: Treasurer@LosPaseosNeighbors.com.
