Stevens Creek Trail Options Narrowing Wednesday Night

Commuters, recreational users: Do you walk, bike or otherwise use the Stevens Creek Trail? Would you like to? Don't miss hearing about this process!

 

The City of Los Altos is participating in the The Stevens Creek Trail Joint Cities Feasibility Study, with the goal of determining feasible and preferred alternatives to complete a multi-use trail in the Stevens Creek corridor running from Mountain View to Cupertino. 

On Wednesday night, one of a series of public meetings is being held to help the study consultants and city staffs in determining next steps in narrowing the choices and work toward completion of a multi-use trail in the Stevens Creek corridor.

The study will identify a broad range of trail alternatives based on existing plans/policies/studies, community input, geographic/physical/biological and institutional conditions and opportunities.

The study will then conduct certain technical engineering feasibilty analysis, scientific assessments and public vetting of identified alternatives and screen to a small set of technically feasible, community supported alternatives.

The study will provide information necessary for each city to consider advancing a project to the environmental, design and construction phases.

One meeting has already been held at Grant Park in Los Altos. The next meeting is Wednesday, Jan. 30. See below and our map.

Wednesday night, the meeting is 7 p.m., at the Sunnyvale Community Center Ball Room, 550 E. Remington Ave., Sunnyvale.

See the map next to this article.

It will be a real tragedy if the new trail is dramatically less safe for pedestrians and bicyclists than the existing trail.

Is anyone out there going to this meeting? I have a conflicting meeting to cover. Please let us know what you find out!

Yes, it would be great to get some reaction to the meeting.

Stevens Creek Trail Feasibility Study is a great example of public manipulation. The process is biased and corrupted and they really don’t care what the residents of streets that will be affected have to say. The community input process is designed to help ratify a handful of specific routes and not actually gather input … just look at the lame “survey” forms that are provided at the end. And no option is provided to speak in front of the entire group … wonder why that is? Part of their plan is to tell you just enough (and withhold important information) so that certain routes seem like the best. For example, read the documentation and listen in the public sessions. Do you ever see or hear them reference to “school safety?” That is because if you stopped and thought about how the on-street trail could put school children as risk via adding bike traffic on roads that are already congested. Or in general having 1,000 strangers a day riding through open campuses. Come to this meeting and enjoy the spin !!!
