Update on Federal HUD Action Taken by the Community

posted Aug 15, 2016, 1:14 AM by Jonathan Fleming

Communities Working Together has informed us that our actions have paid off and our case has been escalated from the sub basement level to near the top of HUD's priorities.

From a CWT Spokesperson:
"CWT continues to work in good faith with the City of San Jose and with Tam Nguyen, City Councilman District 7, in addressing the issues that are impacting our community. We plan to have a meeting in the community with our elected official in response to our concerns in the near future. We will be asking our neighbors to attend future City Council meetings and support the community Speakers."

Please check back frequently for more details.

6/28/2016 City Council Meeting

The City Council voted to approve the San Jose and Santa Clara County Homeless Shelter located at 2500 Senter Rd San Jose, CA.  The decision was made around 1:30AM after many residents had gone home to sleep.  Still, there were many residents who voiced their opposition to the project, including Councilman Tam Nguyen of District 7 who flip-flopped his initial vote of approval at a previous council meeting.

Here is a video of the meeting.  The 2500 Senter Road Homeless Shelter appears at section 11.4, or about 11 hours 30 minutes into the video...happy scrolling
