Framework for Implementation
 
Purpose
As directed by the Mayor and City Council, the purpose of the Diridon Station Area Good Neighbor Committee (GNC) is to provide a forum for neighbors to work collaboratively in solving problems in the neighborhood that arise from development in the Diridon Station Area.  The Committee will discuss potential impacts of existing and planned development and collaborate to provide their best advice to City Council on how to realistically address these impacts. 
 
Product
The final product of the Committee Good Neighbor Committee will be the Diridon Station Area Good Neighbor Committee: Framework for Implementation.  The Framework will focus on the Good Neighbor Committee's priority interest areas. For each of the interest areas the Framework will identify the top three objectives to guide future implementation, and may also provide recommended mitigations, or suggestions on how the priority objectives should be implemented.

The City of San Jose, in coordination with the San Jose Redevelopment Agency, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, and other local and regional transportation agencies, are continuing to develop a plan for a ½-mile radius around Diridon Station (approximately 500 acres of land).
 
On Saturday, March 27, 2010, community members are invited to join the planning team from the City of San Jose for a Diridon Station Area Plan Alternative Analysis Workshop. The second in a series of community workshops for the Station Area Plan, participants will be involved in hands-on activities to identify preferred land use and station options for the Diridon Station Area Plan.
