Summary

  1. What new downtown projects should residents, expecting an impact on the community, be looking forward to?
  2. With more than 12 million sq. ft. of office on the way, what steps can be taken to supply enough housing and ensure long-time residents are not displaced?
  3. What role is public transit (BART, VTA, CalTrain) playing in the growth of Downtown San Jose and adjacent communities?
  4. What lessons, if any, can Downtown San Jose learn from San Francisco and Oakland as development continues at a record pace?
  5. What is lacking in DT San Jose's CBD core right now that inhibits a live-work-play environment?
