Community Planning and Facilitation
Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace BART Station Area Community Concept Plan (2010)
Public Vision Research, in partnership with CommUniverCity San José and the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace community, developed a conceptual plan for transit-oriented development in the vicinity of the future Alum Rock BART Station in San Jose, California. A series of dynamic workshops were conducted with community members to help define their vision for the BART station area. The plan include the redevelopment of the San Jose Steel site and other industrial land in conjunction with the BART extension, the creation of a town square at the San Jose Steel site, the revitalization of East Santa Clara Street (between Coyote Creek and Highway 101), the development of a trail along the former Union Pacific ROW, and a neighborhood-wide parking strategy.
