DIRIDON STATION AREA PLAN Visioning Workshop

Saturday, September 12, 2009 9:00 a.m.-12:00pm
The City of San José, in coordination with the San José Redevelopment Agency, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, and other local and regional transportation agencies, are developing a plan for a ½-mile radius around Diridon Station (approximately 500 acres of land). The objective of this process is to provide a vision and framework for higher intensity/transit-oriented development (TOD) in the area. We invite you to play an active role in shaping this vision. The process involves developing a Station Area Plan around Diridon Station with related transit and station-area planning activities, and includes environmental clearance under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Diridon Station, already a major transit hub, with its location along the Union Pacific/Caltrain/Amtrak/Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) rail corridors, will become one of the busiest multimodal stations in California as a station of the proposed BART extension to Silicon Valley and the California High Speed Rail corridor (HSR) to San Francisco and Los Angeles. The Diridon Station Area Plan will provide a vision and guidance for this unique destination with a broad mix of transit-supportive uses. In addition, the Plan anticipates pedestrian, bicycle, open space, and street connections from the greater downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. On Saturday, September 12, 2009, community members are invited to join the planning team from the City of San José for a Diridon Station Area Plan Visioning Workshop. The first in a series of community workshops for the Station Area Plan, this event will focus on visions and ideas for the future. Workshop participants will be involved in hands-on activities to identify key issues for the planning team to address for the Station Area Plan. Please join the planning team at:
