Dear Neighbor,

The next step in the process to buiding the Carmen Bridge is coming up next Tuesday at City Council. After nearly 2 ½ years of grass-roots support, the Feasiblity Study is complete and the Council will review it on November 5. (No funding will be discussed at this meeting--funding for design will be discussed next Spring). Click here to see all the possibilities for the design of the bridge.
Your vocal support is needed to let the City Council know this study should be approved.

Please email the City Council today to let them know:
  • You are a resident (details on where you live or where your children go to school are helpful) that supports building the bridge.
  • You'd like them to approve the feasibility study on Tuesday, Nov 5.

Why Build the Carmen Bridge?

The Carmen Bridge is a:
  • Tier I project in the Cupertino Pedestrian Plan;
  • Tier 2 project in the Cupertino Bicycle Plan;
  • A key element of the Cupertino Parks & Recreation Master Plan; and
  • A key connector of the Bike Boulevard network that connects several neighborhoods to Stevens Creek Elementary, Kennedy Middle, and Monta Vista High Schools.

Many residents have noticed that traffic is increasing in our city. Over 100 Stevens Creek Elementary and over 400 Kennedy and Monta Vista students are driven to school each day because of the difficulty crossing Stevens Creek while walking or biking. These additional cars are a likely a contributor to congestion and reduced safety around our schools and in local neighborhoods.
Traffic is backed up daily on Stevens Creek Blvd. With the new trucks from Lehigh, it will likely get worse.
