Event description
Catalyze SV facilitates a community workshop to brainstorm the future of the El Paseo shopping center in West San Jose.

About this Event

Currently an underutilized shopping center, El Paseo de Saratoga is proposed to be redeveloped as a mixed-use project by the Sand Hill Property Company.

To help get the best ideas from the community about what it wants from changes to this site, we're hosting a workshop about it. Join us to share your ideas!

Since we need an estimate on attendees to provide enough food, RSVP by 11 pm on Wednesday, February 26.

10:15 am - City officials & the developer introduce themselves

10:25 am - Catalyze SV presents historical & current context of the site & neighborhood

10:55 am - Participants separate into small groups of 5-8 people; each group is led by a CSV volunteer facilitator

11:00 am - Participants walk to the site (for those with mobility challenges, at least 1 small group will remain at the meeting space); facilitators ask participants about the site & its possibilities & take notes

11:35 am - Small groups walk back to to the meeting space

11:45 am - Each small group shares some of its key observations w/the larger group

12:00 pm - Workshop ends & lunch is served at the meeting space
