Learn More About Development Plans at Curtner Light Rail Station1/9/2018 11:30 AM |
Living and working near public transportation makes it that much easier for people to use public transportation, helping to reduce traffic on the Bay Area’s busy roadways.
VTA’s Curtner Light Rail station currently has a park and ride lot that’s underutilized, so plans are underway to explore the potential for mixed use/mixed income residential and commercial development on the site.
A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 11, to give nearby residents and anyone else interested in the project, a chance to ask questions and learn more about the possibilities for this area. VTA is looking into opportunities to work with private developers and the City of San Jose to plan a space that allows people to live and work near transit, which provides a host of benefits in addition to reducing traffic, including helping to improve air quality, and mobility throughout Silicon Valley.
The first step in this process is talking to the community about these plans, so VTA encourages everyone interested to attend this public meeting to be held January 11, at 6 p.m., at the San Jose Scottish Rite Center, 2455 Masonic Drive, San Jose.
