Public Involvement

Body

Whether it’s ensuring that timely and accurate information is accessible for the public, joining community meetings or events, or knocking on doors to inform neighbors about upcoming construction, the Community Outreach team is the liaison for Phase II public engagement for Santa Clara County residents.

The guiding work for Phase II community engagement is the Construction Education and Outreach Plan (CEOP). This plan guides public awareness and engagement throughout the life of the project and is phased in stages that reflect the activity on Phase II. Included in the outreach plan are the following:

  • General Outreach
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Business Resources
  • Placemaking
  • On the Radar – Associated Projects

Community Working Groups

Community Working Groups (CWGs) were initially created when VTA's BART Silicon Valley Program was a 16-mile extension into Santa Clara County. After the project was split into two phases and beginning in 2015, CWGs resumed for the Santa Clara, 28th Street/Little Portugal, and Downtown-Diridon station areas. Each CWG member has been appointed to represent the unique constituencies that live, work and play near the stations. Their role is to disseminate information to the stakeholders near each station area and to give feedback to the project team. 

Community Working Groups meet quarterly.
