Diridon Station Community Workshop

In a couple of days there will be a community workshop to discuss the future of the Diridon area. Eventually this will be the grand central station of the west coast, connecting High Speed Rail, BART, Caltrain, Light Rail, ACE, Capital Corridor, Amtrak, and a massive Bus hub. One of our readers reviewed the preferred draft of the plans for the area and found some discouraging items in there such as suburban-oriented parking ratios and an alternate plan with freeway-oriented retail on Bird & San Carlos. If you want to help San Jose get to the next level of urbanization (especially in this critical transit-hub neighborhood), this would be a great workshop to attend an let your voice be heard!
