11/2 6:00-7:00 pm – Housing at Tamien — 1 Comment

  1. Tamien update: here is the link to the Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND): http://www.sanjoseca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/55328.
    See Section 3.1.5 Prerequisite for Project Construction

    “In December 2014, VTA approved construction of a four- or five-level parking structure that would
    provide approximately 700 to 900 parking spaces on the existing surface parking lot west of the site across SR 87. That development was the subject of an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration prepared in compliance with CEQA in December 2014.4. Because development on the proposed project would result in the loss of 310 stalls of existing transit parking adjacent to the Tamien Station, construction of the proposed project would not begin until the parking structure is completed and replacement parking for Tamien Station is available. This would be a condition of approval of a site development permit for the project site.
    At this time, VTA anticipates completing construction of the parking structure at the end of 2017,
    and completing the currently proposed project in 2018”

    That is the good news. The not so good news is that there is no provision in the MND to relocate the Child Care Center that currently accommodates 90 children or the 59 dedicated parking spaces for the parents.

    One idea is to relocate the Child Care Center to the parcel on Goodyear that the City of San Jose acquired from the VTA a couple of years ago with the intent of leasing it to a Rocketship school.
    Please write to the San Jose City Council if you think that this is a good idea or if you have an even better idea of where the Child Care Center should be relocated.
