    • Four Music in the Park performances (Jun 22, Jul 12, Aug 3, and Aug 24)
    • A weekly Downtown Farmer's Market each Friday on San Pedro Street from 10am-2pm
    • Starlight Cinemas on Jun 16, July 21, Aug 18, and Sep 15
    • Dine Downtown restaurant week from Jul 13-22
    • City Dance on eight Thursdays from August to October
  • Groundworks has achieved a 92% approval rating for 2018. 
  • Strategic SJDA objectives for 2018-2020 are to make people feel safe Downtown, minimize the impact of the homeless population, improve the Downtown brand, create a Downtown vision focused on strengthening districts and connectivity between them, and to support the BART extension to Downtown while minimizing impact to local businesses.
  • The Theatre on San Pedro Square has been renamed the Tabard Theatre.
  • A 87-unit, eight-story affordable housing building is being proposed for Almaden Boulevard and Balbach.
  • KT Urban is proposing a 220-room, 19-story hotel next to Axis on Santa Clara Street.
