Important: Workshop for the Diridon Station Integrated Station Concept Plan

From Lori Severino, Diridon Program Manager for DISC (Diridon Integrated Station Concept), the station design project for Diridon:

Hello Community Members,
The fourth Community Meeting on the Diridon Integrated Station Concept Plan is happening this Monday! 
What: Big Moves Workshop
When: Monday, September 23, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Studio Space at Poor House Bistro (91 S Autumn Street)
Event flyer: English and Spanish 

At the third Community Meeting in June, the Partner Agencies collaborating on the Concept Plan (Caltrain, and California High-Speed Rail Authority, City of San José, and VTA) discussed three possible layouts for the future station. The Partner Agencies have since advanced the spatial layouts into an optimization process, with the intent of developing a single spatial layout that best achieves the project objectives. 
The purpose of this upcoming workshop is to explore the “big moves” for the station in more detail and share progress to date on the optimization process. The “big moves” include the vertical position of the station platforms, the location of the future station entrances, and the track approaches going into the future station. The workshop will feature an overview presentation and three-dimensional models of four possible layouts (including the three shown in June and a new “dual concourse” layout). A focus of discussion will be the potential community benefits and impacts of the various track alignments under consideration. Check out the project website for additional information, including this status update memo from August
The meeting will offer light refreshments and live interpretation in Spanish. Children are welcome to attend. We hope you can join us for this important conversation!
