Please voice your support before the November 8, San Jose City Planning Commission meeting by signing this petition and forwarding it to your friends and neighbors in the Evergreen community. Land owners and developers are currently negotiating with the City of San Jose to develop 542 acres of land in the Evergreen area of the city. To ensure that the needs of developers and the existing community receive balanced consideration, the Evergreen East Hills Vision Strategy (EEHVS) Task Force was created by the City Council. The charter of the Task Force includes the investigation of development options and the formulation of recommendations for the use of land and project funds. These recommendations will be made by the Task Force to the San Jose City Planning Commission and, in turn, to the San Jose City Council. It is important to emphasize that the City Council will have the final decision on the use of land and project funds. On September 25, 2006, the Task Force passed a motion to recommend that land be dedicated to the building of three elementary and middle grade schools (one K-6 school and two K-8 schools) to support the residential growth stemming from the 542 acre build-out (approximately 4,000 new homes.) In a separately passed motion, the Task Force agreed to recommend that land be reserved for the building of a high school within the 542 acres of land to be developed. So far, so good, right Read on

    Comments: I believe we need a new high school in the Silver Creek/Evergreen area. Would it be nice to acquire the land next to Evergreen community college ( I mean the land between the college and Mc Donald rest ).
