30-second Story Road Urban Village request

Submit a 30-second online petition to request that the Story Road area between Capitol Expressway and White Road be designated as an Urban Village.

Thanks in part to the online petitions submitted in December 2019, this topic will be discussed by the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan Task Force at their February 2020 meeting. Please use the form below to submit an online petition to request that the City of San Jose designate the Story Road area between Capitol Expressway and White Road as an Urban Villages.

Urban villages are walkable, bicycle-friendly, transit-oriented, mixed use settings that provide both housing and jobs. The urban village strategy fosters:
1. Engagement of village area residents in the urban village planning process
2. Mixed residential and employment activities that are attractive to an innovative workforce
3. Revitalization of underutilized properties that have access to existing infrastructure
4. Densities that support transit use, bicycling, and walking
5. High-quality urban design
