Dear Santa Clarans north of U.S. 101,
There is just one Community Meeting left for the public discussion of the traffic and the parking management which will be needed throughout the area near the 49ers' stadium:
|Wednesday, June 25||7:00-8:30pm||Santa Clara
Youth Soccer Park
5020 Stars and Stripes Drive
Santa Clara, CA 95054
An NFL event will lead to a stream of easily 20,000 motor vehicles into our city's north side - an SUV for virtually every resident of Zip Code 95054.
The earlier meetings have been attended by maybe a hundred folks each, tops - meaning that only a tiny fraction of people with a stake in the traffic management associated with the stadium have turned out for these meetings.
How the multi-city police force parks those 20,000 vehicles over the five hours before a kickoff - and sends them on their way during the 90 minutes after game-over - affects every resident of Santa Clara and a great many also in north San Jose and Sunnyvale.
1. Anyone may attend the meeting on Wednesday evening at the Youth Soccer Park.
2. You do not need to be registered to vote in order to attend these meetings.
3. You do not need to be a homeowner to attend. If you rent, you have a stake in this, too.
From the May 19th meeting, please see the actual PowerPoint slides here, and if you have any questions, we urge you to contact directly:
Mayor Matthews and the City Council
The Santa Clara Police Department
Please let us know if we may provide anything else, and thank you for all of your support.
William F. "Bill" Bailey, Treasurer,
Next: More on the June 10th Council Meeting - and a little on the Development Study Session that preceded it.
