Come to San José City Hall

Tuesday, May 19th

at 1:30 in the afternoon!

[free validated parking in the garage: enter from 6th St.]

The Mayor and Councilmembers consider 3 items that will decide the fate of the Willow Glen Trestle:

·       Do they agree with the Landmarks Commission that it is historic?

·       Do they agree with Staff that a prefab bridge is preferred?

·       Do they sign the contract to demolish the Trestle?

>>  Please attend and show your support!  <<

Call or write the Mayor and Council, and say

Yes, the trestle is historic;

Redo the EIR to prefer the “Retrofit Alternative”;

and do NOT sign the contract to destroy this reminder of our local history!

 

(If you can’t attend the midday Council meeting, please write a letter!
Here’s a “sample letter” to help with the addresses and details.)
