San Jose Urban Villages: Past, present & future
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 4, when San Jose State University’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning and the Urban Planning Coalition convene their sixth annual Symposium on the SJSU campus.
AICP | CM 4.0
The symposium will focus on the development of urban villages in San Jose, one of 12 major development strategies in the Envision San José 2040 General Plan adopted in 2011.
Urban villages are walkable, bicycle-friendly, transit-oriented, mixed-use settings that provide both housing and jobs in support of the General Plan’s environmental goals. You can read more about San Jose’s urban villages at http://bit.ly/2lZbunI or watch a 4-minute video at https://youtu.be/81uSC06nDQI.
Panel discussions will address economic development, housing, and transportation related to urban village development in San Jose, with a common emphasis on progress — past, present, and future.
Breakfast, refreshments, and lunch provided with registration.
