Road Diet

Road_diet.jpgWGNA will be hosting our next community meeting on Thursday, November 20th, from 7 to 9pm in the Willow Glen Elementary School Cafeteria. The topic of the meeting will be a recently proposed lane reconfiguration of Lincoln Avenue and a potential trial simulation.

There will be comments by District 6 Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio and representatives from the San José Department of Transportation, who will also answer audience questions. This subject drew a lot of interest when we recently asked our community about it on Facebook, so we expect a large crowd. Be sure to RSVP ASAP.

Willow Glen Elementary is located at 1425 Lincoln Avenue at the corner of Minnesota. Parking is available in the rear of the school or across Minnesota. Please use crosswalks and DO NOT jaywalk.
