Blossom Hill Station Joint Development Community Meeting1/23/2018 10:23 AM |
The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority would like to invite you to a community meeting to learn about VTA’s Joint Development program, and potential opportunity for a transit-oriented development (TOD), at VTA’s Blossom Hill Transit Center Parking located on Blossom Hill Road at Canoas Creek, San Jose.
VTA staff will provide information and then facilitate small breakout groups where you can provide input and share your ideas to help shape your neighborhood. VTA values your participation and encourages your attendance at this meeting.
The Blossom Hill Station is a VTA real estate asset available for future development. The 7.59-acre property is located along Blossom Hill Road at Canoas Creek and serves as a Park & Ride lot for Light Rail and Bus passengers.
The parking lot has the potential for mixed use/mixed income transit residential and commercial development. Developments that are transit-oriented in nature enhance VTA’s transit operations through increases in ridership and infrastructure improvements. VTA is analyzing the site for opportunities to work with the private development sector along with the City of San Jose to plan a space that allows people to live and work near public transportation which helps clear the air, ease traffic and get you moving more efficiently and reliably.
VTA’s Joint Development Program works with municipal and private partners to encourage the development of housing, retail, and employment centers in places that will help increase transit ridership and contribute to a vibrant community. Among VTA’s Joint Development requirements is that 20% of housing on a particular site must be affordable.
