Three Creeks Trail: Have Your Say

If you are interested in offering your opinion on the Three Creeks Trail project, there are three opportunities:
  • Attend the Open Space Authority Meeting this Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 6pm in South San Jose. See http://www.openspaceauthority. org/about/agendas.html for more information.
  • Write a letter to the Board of Supervisors about the Three Creeks Trail because the acquisition is time sensitive
  • Union Pacific Railroad is required to do a clean-up of their former rail line prior to selling the land. There is concern for bigger, older trees along the line so that they are not harmed during the clean-up process. Save Our Trails is asking concerned neighbors to write emails to Andrew Berna-Hicks, the DTSC Project Manager, asking that an arborist be retained to inventory all specimen trees with roots in the proposed areas of contaminated soil removal and that a plan be devised to preserve these trees against any significant injury from the removal work. The deadline for public comments is 5:00 p.m., August 26, 2010.
Note: For anyone who is interested in the background of this path and the purpose of the planned Three Creeks Trail including the opportunity it provides for cross-county connectivity, please see a slide show prepared by Larry Ames for Supervisor Shirakawa at this address:; click on the >> in the upper right corner to step forward through the presentation.
