Envision San Jose 2040 Task Force

The Envision San José 2040 Task Force was created in 2007 to assist staff with the update of the City’s General Plan. This update process ended in 2011 and resulted in the Envision San José 2040 General Plan

The Task Force evaluates the City’s achievement of planned job goals, implementation of the Urban Village concept, environmental indicators, and affordable housing needs in the past four years and makes recommendations to City Council on mid-course adjustments to the Plan at the end of the review process. 

The Envision San José 2040 Task Force reconvenes with previous members and organizations, representing a diversity of thought and perspective. Visit the Task Force Members page to see the membership.
