Public Input Wanted on VTA’s 28th Street/Little Portugal Development

The community is invited to weigh in on what housing and commercial development will be like near the site of the future 28th Street/Little Portugal BART station.

VTA’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Program works with municipal, non-profit, and private partners to encourage the development of equitable mixed-use residential, commercial, service, and employment centers in places that will help increase transit ridership and contribute to a vibrant community.

Among VTA’s Transit-Oriented Community (TOC) Policy requirements is that at least 25% of housing units developed on each site be affordable, with some sites as high as 100% affordable. 

The 28th Street/Little Portugal BART Station is the first of four stations in BART Silicon Valley’s Phase II Expansion.  VTA is conducting planning and outreach in order to a create a lively mixed-use, transit-oriented community (TOC). The development will include housing at a range of densities and affordability levels; commercial and retail spaces; local arts and culture; enhanced mobility choices and first-last mile connections; and community services and other amenities, integrated into a safe, walkable neighborhood. 

The public can contribute to this project by:
