Got Sidewalks? A West San Carlos / South Bascom Community Conversation

From Greenbelt Alliance:

What are the building blocks to make a community healthy, walkable, vibrant and complete?

Join Greenbelt Alliance and San Jose State University on Thursday, May 10 for Part 2 in our Got Sidewalks? series about the future urban village of West San Carlos / South Bascom. After weeks auditing the streets block by block, our team of graduate students will share their findings and present a menu of options for making improvements to the pedestrian experience. Using GIS-based maps, they’ll highlight important connections people are already making on foot, by bike and by bus.

You will have an opportunity to use maps to show us the strengths, challenges and opportunities of West San Carlos Street and South Bascom Avenue.

Take advantage of this early opportunity to provide input to the City of San Jose. Later this year, the City will kick off an urban corridor master plan that will advance the vision and values of Envision 2040, San Jose’s blueprint for growth over the next few decades.

This event is free; RSVP. Light dinner and refreshments provided. For more information, please contact Michele Beasley.
