Tasman Corridor Complete Streets Study: Alternative Design & Online Survey5/4/2018 11:59 AM |
Neighbors and staff members from San Jose Councilmember Lan Diep’s office seized the opportunity to help set the criteria for developing improved street designs along the Tasman Corridor, and it is not too late for you to participate.
On May 2, 2018, River Oaks Neighborhood Association residents joined VTA project staff in discussing the Tasman Corridor Complete Streets Study held at the Elan Apartments Community Room in San Jose.
The joint planning study with the City of Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, San Jose, and Milpitas, is evaluating seven miles of Tasman Drive and Great Mall Parkway from Morse Avenue in Sunnyvale to Montague Expressway in Milpitas.
The purpose of this multi-jurisdictional planning study is to identify opportunities along Tasman Drive and Great Mall Parkway to demonstrate and advance Complete Streets improvements. The study is evaluating streetscape improvements, transit travel times, signal coordination, multiple means of travel access, safety, and connectivity.
Public feedback was incorporated into the design alternatives which were on display at the River Oaks Neighborhood Association meeting. The residents reviewed and provided feedback directly to the project staff.
Gathering public input is critical to the success of all the planning efforts VTA undertakes, and there is still an opportunity to provide feedback. Residents can share their opinions on the alternative designs in a survey by clicking on this link. The survey is open until May 30, 2018. Your feedback will be shared with the project team as they move forward with the preferred alternative.
VTA will host a community forum on May 23 at 6 PM at the Lakewood Park Community Room in Sunnyvale. Project staff will have a chance to provide a brief overview of the alternative designs and meet in an open-house style with residents. We welcome you to attend and share your feedback.
