About the Stevens Creek Urban Village
The Stevens Creek Urban Village is a long commercial corridor that is characterized by large car dealerships and medium sized commercial buildings housing tenants such as DSW, Cost Plus Work Market, and the former Circuit City, interspersed with smaller one- and two-story retail and service shops. Three Expressways cross through this Village that can also be accessed from Interstate Highway 280 at three separate locations. Additionally, the Valley Transportation Authority’s (VTA) Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is planned to run along Stevens Creek Boulevard with a planned stop at three intersections within the Stevens Creek Village including, San Thomas Expressway, Kiely Boulevard, and Lawrence Expressway. These characteristics make this Urban Village an ideal location for a mixture of new and intensified commercial and residential uses.

Urban Village Boundaries

The Stevens Creek Urban Village is located in western San Jose along the south side of Stevens Creek Boulevard generally between Lawrence Expressway and Winchester Boulevard.

The Planning Process 
The City of San Jose is taking part in extensive community outreach as part of the Stevens Creek Urban Village planning process. The outreach process consists of background research, as well as, three community planning workshops specifically focused on the Stevens Creek Urban Village. The first workshop was held on Wednesday, February 27, 2013.

Workshop #1 

The Stevens Creek Urban Village workshop was held on February 27, 2013 at the Cypress Senior and Community Center at 6:30 pm. Over 72 community members attended the workshop that included a mix of community residents, home owners, property owners and local businesses owners. 

The workshop began with a presentation given by planning staff on Urban Villages and the Urban Village planning process. Participants then broke into groups where they were asked for input on the current state of the neighborhood and the opportunities that exist on the corridor. Additionally, groups were asked to provide input on a vision for the future of the the Stevens Creek Urban Village. The final task for participants was to use Lego to construct where they thought new development should be planned. 

Thank you to all who attended the first Stevens Creek Urban Village workshop. If you you were unable to attend please review the workshop materials below:
