Council District 7 Newsletter
March 16, 2018 - In This Issue:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,

his past Tuesday, the City Council unanimously voted to stop pursuing the "Opt-In/Stay-In-Business" concept proposed by mobile home park owners. Mobile home park residents were very concerned about this issue because it had the potential to negatively impact park closures, space rents, and home values. There are 59 mobile home parks in San Jose that are home to approximately 35,000 residents -- the largest number of mobile home households in California. In addition to stopping Opt-In, the City Council directed the Planning Department to create a land use designation that is reserved for mobile home parks. This designation will help prevent the displacement of seniors and low-income families and protect our affordable housing stock. Thank you to all the residents who came to the community meetings, emailed and called my office about this issue.
 
We also celebrated the installation of a new crosswalk at the corner of Lanai and Waverly Avenue with the Valley Palms and Tropicana/Lanai residents. The new crosswalk will help to slow traffic and assist pedestrians to cross the street safely. I had a great time showing the students from Katherine E. Smith Elementary School how to properly cross the street. Thank you to our dedicated staff over at the Department of Transportation for the new addition and to the San Jose Police Department for keeping us safe.
 
Looking ahead to next week, please join me for an Immigration & Safety Townhall meeting on Wednesday, March 21 at 6pm, Saint Maria Goretti Church.  We will have representatives from the Office of Immigrant Affairs, the San Jose Police Department, Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, the Mexican Consulate, the Vietnamese-American Roundtable, and other local agencies to address your questions. For more information, contact Johanna Rodriguez at (408) 535-4907 or via email at Johanna.Rodriguez@sanjoseca.gov.
 
I am also partnering with CourseCo, who manages Los Lagos Golf Course, for an Easter Egg Hunt on Friday, March 23 at Los Lagos Golf Course. The event starts at 6:30pm. Bring your family to meet the Easter bunny, hunt for eggs, and participate in children's activities and games. I look forward to celebrating with you. See you then.

I f you have any questions, concerns or suggestions on how we can improve our community, feel free to contact me at  (408) 535-4907  or email me at  district7@sanjoseca.gov.
               
Sincerely,

We are making it cheaper and easier to do business with the City, through efforts such as:
  • Lowering fees
  • Streamlining processes for all areas of City government - especially within Planning, Building & Code Enforcement (PBCE)
  • Improved customer service
  • More clarity and consistency in government.
City staff has come a long way in the past five years. Here are some examples of the success of our efforts:
  • The streamlining of the permitting process for home improvement projects and small additions. 
  • Several home upgrades that no longer require a permit.
  • For several permits, no longer the need to stand in line at City Hall as permits are now available here.
  • A new video tutorial on designing a home addition for your single-family residence.
There are two important meetings coming up regarding ADUs:
  1. Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 5:30 PM
    Almaden Community Center, 6455 Camden Avenue, San Jose
    This meeting is sponsored by PBCE and is specifically for gathering input on the ADU policy and possible changes that PBCE may consider.

2. Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 7:00 PM

  Almaden Valley Community Center, 6455 Camden Avenue, San Jose

  This will be an informative panel discussion for homeowners that will include experts from           PBCE, financing institutions, and the construction field. They will share their knowledge on the   benefits of ADUs and how homeowners can go about adding an ADU to their property.

The Housing Department is pleased to announce the launch of their updated Inclusionary Housing webpage  which includes information about the transition between Affordable Housing Impact Fee (AHIF) and Inclusionary Housing Ordinance (IHO).
  
They are also in the process of updating the Implementation Guidelines for the Inclusionary Housing Ordinance. Please view the Inclusionary Housing Ordinance Interim Guidelines - DRAFT Main Document and submit comments or questions to staff before April 6, 2018. At this time, the Housing Department has only published the IHO Main Document and will be completing drafts of the guidelines for each subsequent compliance option in the near future.
 
Please submit comments via email to Tina Vo at tina.vo@sanjoseca.gov and specify the section of the ordinance or the guidelines to which you have questions or feedback. Not all comments will be addressed directly and staff may follow up with questions and/or requests for more information. If it pertains to a specific development project, please provide that context and detailed project information (such as the Planning Development permit number as reference).
 
All questions, please contacet Amy Chen at  amy.chen@sanjoseca.gov  or 408-975-4489 .   
California's shortage of housing has placed a premium on housing, running home prices and rents to record highs. It has also triggered a wave of homelessness that has overwhelmed the resources of cities and counties.

To quickly provide help for people who are homeless and provide them with shelter, Senator Beall has introduced Senate Bill 912, a proposal to allocate $2 billion funding to house and help the homeless and families with low and moderate incomes. Senator Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, is joining him as an author of SB 912.

There is no better investment than to immediately put those dollars to work to shelter the homeless, seniors, and children.

The $2 billion would come from this year's higher than anticipated state revenue as a one-time investment to cope with homelessness and the shortage of affordable housing.

The bill calls for the Department of Housing and Community Development to provide funds to cities and counties for homeless and affordable housing programs.

SB 912 fills a void created by the Trump Administration's action to defund affordable housing tax credits and eliminate Community Development Blocks, two federal programs that have historically supported the creation of homes and apartments throughout the states.

STORM UPDATE AND RESOURCES    
     
After a dismally dry February, March has come in like a lion. Rain and snow has fallen in the mountains surrounding Santa Clara Valley, and the forecast shows several more storms on their way. While unanticipated stream or storm drain blockages could always cause localized flooding during a rainstorm, we do not currently anticipate any creek flooding issues.
 
Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVW) crews have worked all year to prepare our creeks for winter rains. We are dedicated to keeping residents and businesses safe through our flood protection programs.
 
In preparation for this series of storms, all five of our  sandbag sites have been fully stocked. In addition, cities around the county operate an additional 18  sandbag sites.
 
Our maintenance staff stands ready with heavy equipment to respond to reports of downed trees or large debris flows in locations where we have property rights. We are monitoring streams for blockages at key bridges and culverts. We need the public's help as our eyes and ears to alert us to obstructions in the creeks and to prevent flooding. To report issues in creeks, residents can call  408-630-2378 or submit a service request to  Access Valley Water.
 
As of Thursday morning, our ten reservoirs have a combined storage of just 26 percent of their full capacity. This leaves a significant amount of storage space to capture the expected storm runoff. Therefore, we do not anticipate any possibility of our large reservoirs reaching capacity this week or next. The exception is the relatively small Vasona Reservoir in Los Gatos, which regularly reaches capacity during the rainy season.
 
Visit SCVW  website for flood safety tips, current reservoir levels and stream flows, and maps to free sandbag sites.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please email or call Rachael Gibson, Deputy Administrative Officer at rgibson@valleywater.org or 408-781-4739

RAPID RESPONSE NETWORK
The Rapid Response Network in Santa Clara County is a community defense project developed to protect immigrant families from deportation. They provide moral and accompaniment support during and after immigration operations in our community, and activate immigration attorneys when needed. The number is (408) 290-1144.

Briefly, these four things will happen when contacting the RRN:
  • Bilingual dispatchers (Eng/Spanish) will help the caller assert their rights over the phone. [For other languages, a third party interpreter service will be connected to the call.]
  • The Network dispatcher will send trained Rapid Responders to the impacted area. They will confirm if a raid is taking place and conduct legal observation of any ICE agents.
  • If someone was detained or is at risk of being detained, we activate immigration attorneys immediately.
  • The Network provides moral and family support to community members who have had a loved one detained by immigration.
