Historic Landmarks Commission meeting today

“In 2002, the City Council adopted a Strong Neighborhoods Initiative (SNI) Implementation Plan for the Greater Gardner Area, which is bound on the north by Highway 280, on the east by Highway 87, on the west by Bird, and on the south by Willow Street. ”-- Taken from Nomination of Greater Gardner Area

The Historic Landmarks Commission meeting this Wednesday will review the Greater Gardner historic survey report. The recommendation by the architectural historians who wrote the survey is that the area bounded by Willow, Bird, Fuller, and Delmas become the city's next Historic Preservation District. 

It should be noted that many homes on the periphery are considered "contributing structures" for the purposes defining the district boundaries. As a community, we support all our neighbors (particularly in Gardner) on their quest to obtain a similar designation.

This meeting is open to the public and affords the opportunity to speak at an open forum.

December 6, 2017
6:30pm
Wing Room 120
First Floor, City Hall Wing
200 East Santa Clara Street
San Jose, CA 95113

This item is first on the agenda after consent.
