SJ Diridon Station Area Community Engagement
The City of San Jose, working with Google, the community, and stakeholders, is undertaking an ambitious, collaborative effort in developing a new vision for the Diridon Station Area. With the coming of major transportation investments in the near future – including BART, High Speed Rail, Bus Rapid Transit, and CalTrain electrification – the City and the community have a special opportunity to work together and steer the development to suit the City’s, residents’, businesses' and region's needs.
The community engagement process recognizes Google’s interest in the area, past planning efforts, and changing dynamics in the area that require a comprehensive outreach effort to gather ideas and spur additional community conversation.
This presentation by Kim Walesh, Deputy City Manager, provides background information on the adopted plans affecting the Diridon Station Area, potential Google project, and civic engagement process, as well as an overview of some of the opportunities and challenges under discussion.
