The last WGNA Board meeting was open to the public on Thursday 13 October 2016 at the community room of the Willow Glen Library. The next meeting will be announced for November.
The last guest speaker was Ben Tripousis, Northern California Regional Director for the California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA). Rod Diridon, Sr. also appeared as a special guest.
There was a discussion regarding alternate plans for California High-Speed Rail to enter Willow Glen "above grade", or, in other words, above the CalTrain tracks with sound walls.
Following, there also included a brief talk from the Election 2016 candidates for San Jose Unified Board of Trustees. Pam Foley and Olivia Navarro will address residents and members (15 min each).
