Community meeting on the Diridon Integrated Station Concept Plan


From the City of San Jose:
We have scheduled a third Community Meeting on the Diridon Integrated Station Concept Plan for June 10th! The Concept Plan is a collaborative effort by four Partner Agencies (California High-Speed Rail Authority, Caltrain, City of San José, and VTA) to plan for the expansion and redesign of Diridon Station. The Partner Agencies anticipate completing Phase 1 of the Concept Plan process in Fall 2019. Phase 1 will result in a Draft Vision for the station.
Diridon Integrated Station Concept Plan - Community Meeting #3
Monday, June 10, 6:00-8:30 PM (presentation to start at 6:30)
Gardner Community Center (520 W Virginia Street, San José) 
At this meeting, the Partner Agencies will provide an update on progress completed since the last Community Meeting in March, including preparation of three possible layouts for the future station. Following a background presentation, there will be workshop activities to gather feedback and answer questions. Community input will help inform the Draft Vision for the station. We will offer live interpretation in Spanish and Vietnamese, light refreshments, and supervised activities for children (age 3+). Families welcome!
