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.

Muriel Wright Center Update

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.

Video of Community Meeting regarding Measure A Bond for Housing

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.

Video of LPNA meeting Feb 15 2018

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
Time: 7:00pm-9:00pm

First LPNA General Meeting of 2018

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.
