Development Plan Overview 
The City of San José, in coordination with the San Jose Redevelopment Agency, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, and other local and regional transportation agencies, are developing a plan for a half-mile radius around Diridon Station (approximately 500 acres of land). The objective of this process is to provide a vision and framework for higher intensity / transit-oriented development (TOD) in the area. We invite you to play an active role in shaping this vision.

The process involves developing a station area plan around Diridon Station with related transit and station-area planning activities, and includes environmental clearance under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Diridon Station, already a major transit hub, with its location along the Union Pacific / Caltrain / Amtrak / Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) rail corridors, will become one of the busiest multimodal stations in California as a station of the proposed Bay Area Rapid Transit extension to Silicon Valley and the California High Speed Rail corridor (HSR) to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The Diridon Station Area Plan will provide a vision and guidance for this unique destination with a broad mix of transit-supportive uses. In addition, the plan anticipates pedestrian, bicycle, open space, and street connections from the greater downtown and surrounding neighborhoods.

Community Workshop
On Saturday, August 7, 2010 a community workshop was held at City Hall to provide the community with an opportunity to review the staff and consultant work to date on the development of the Preferred Plan for the Diridon Station Area. Community members then asked to provide input to further develop and complete the Draft Preferred Alternative. The developing preferred plan builds upon the input received at the March Alternatives Analysis Workshop below and the alternatives analysis report completed in mid July. 

Previous Alternatives Development Workshop
On Saturday, March 27, 2010, a Community Workshop was held at City Hall to develop a Preferred Alternative for the Diridon Station Area Plan.
