VTA/BART Santa Clara Phase II Workshop
Apr

5:15 PM17:15

VTA/BART Santa Clara Phase II Workshop

  • Santa Clara Senior Center, Room 232 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join VTA and BART for a transit oriented development (TOD) workshop.

The purpose of the TOD/Access Study, which focuses on the three future BART stations (Alum Rock/28th Street, Downtown San Jose, and Santa Clara), is to identify strategies to overcome barriers and constraints in existing plans, policies, and funding that inhibit TOD in Santa Clara County.

The TOD/Access Study builds upon existing community plans, transportation and land use strategies, and provides analysis to inform future TOD policy adoption and implementation, including land use, development, and transportation mobility. The TOD/Access Study also complements the Diridon Station Area Plan update and the Diridon Integrated Station Concept Plan process being done in parallel.

On April 16th through April 18th, VTA will be holding TOD/ Access Study Workshops. The purpose of these workshops is to share with the community the draft strategies that have been developed for each station area and to receive community input on these strategies. We invite you to join us for these workshops!

Please share this information to anyone who might be interested in transit-oriented development in your station area and encourage them to attend the workshops, which take place immediately following the Community Working Group meetings.
