NAC Chair updates – Jodene DOT surveys on Park Ave are currently underway. Update on Delmas Towers – Alex would like to meet with a smaller group to brainstorm or make recommendations to move the project forward. It is noted that anything high is not going to work. Jodene has been invited to be on the steering committee for the Green Valley Republic TOD (Transit Oriented Development) proposal on Sunol. It’s been criticized for being way to large, no significant roads, and the transit capacity is just not there to support the proposal. Minutes from last meeting reviewed. Sgt Scott Johnson, Raul Razo, SJPD Update from SJPD around the Delmas area. Introductions and gave their background within the SJPD, and a local resident. They are aware of Auzerais and the liquor store on the street as an ongoing issue of people hanging out, and possible environment for crime. When any crime is occurring, call 911…can be graffiti or anything. If the crime as already occurred, then call 311. If there is any drug activity, call the drug hotline, and undercover units will observe activities around suspicious homes for unusual foot traffic, etc. NAC members requested to patrol Colombia Ave for drug or loitering activity. There is mention that the undercover units may not want patrols to advertise police presence while carrying out surveillant activity in the area, but will partner with them to patrol the area. Juan Borelli, Planning Dept Sr. Planner No new development applications. The pending development rezone use permit for Delmas Park Towers is not yet withdrawn but is recommended to be withdrawn by the San Jose city council. A second pending conditional use permit to sell alcohol from a convenience store at 394 Bird Ave is also recommended to be withdrawn by the San Jose city council, being already over concentrated with local liquor stores, and immediately adjacent to a residential area. Nothing submitted to planning from Green Valley Republic. Anna Le, SNI Team Manager DOT reporting analysis will be rescheduled for the June NAC meeting. There is a request to re-stripe along Delmas, 100ft north of Park, and between Park and San Carlos. The NAC members voted against re-striping Delmas north of Park for concern of width of the street and street parking, but its fine between Park and San Carlos. The May NAC meeting will be for the Housing rehab workshop presentation and applications submission. The whole process may take 2-3 months. Chris will distribute flyers on Park Ave, Cathy L, Art and Ed will distribute along Auzerais, Kathy S. has 3 specific homes targeted, Jodene also has targeted homes on San Fernando and Lakehouse. Email Art on all the updates. Chris mentioned weeds growing on the sidewalk infront of the PAL building (460 Park Ave), and has called code enforcement to request the city to clear the sidewalk. Kathy S. gave an update regarding the signage at the vacant lot on the corner of Auzerais and Bird. Only 1 sign can be posted, and the rest were cleared out.

Final allocation to be determined. Jodene had an idea to have banners to identify the Delmas Park area. Other NAC members agreed that an identity should be established. It was discussed on whether or not we should do work on this after some of the top 10 initiatives have been completed. This was a good idea that should be revisited in the future. For the May NAC meeting: Next meeting will be focused on DP02 (Housing Painting/Rehab project) where neighbors can participate in a workshop to educate them on the program and applications can be filled out.
