Due to construction at the County Supervisors’ office, today’s VTA Board of Directors meeting will be at the Auditorium at VTA headquarters, 3331 N. First Street (near River Oaks) in San Jose. The meeting will start at 5:30pm as always.
Among the agenda items to be discussed at today’s Board of Directors meeting:
finalizing a purchase of land near Orchard Supply Hardware on Auzerais in San Jose to rebuild the Los Gatos Creek railroad bridge for Caltrain (and High-Speed Rail in the future)
finalizing language for the upcoming transportation sales tax ballot measure VTA will have in November
a co-sponsorship deal with the operators of Levi’s Stadium for the upcoming 49ers football season, having a game-day and season light rail pass to and from 49ers games for $25 and $149 per person, respectively.
VTA’s effort for a potential sales tax ballot measure for November is known as “Envision Silicon Valley.’ I was at the last Envision Silicon Valley stakeholder meeting May 10. Below is a recording of that final meeting.
What are your thoughts on what VTA is proposing for this November?
I’ll see you next Tuesday in Santa Clara.
