Planning Area

The Willow Glen Planning Area is a densely developed area west of downtown San Jose. It is 10.4 square miles in area and the population was estimated by the City of San Jose Planning, Building and Code Enforcement Department at 75,937 in the year 2007, which yields a population density of 11.4 residents per acre. By the year 2020 the population is estimated to be 82,750.  See the City of San Jose's "Greenprint" planning maps here.

Today's neighborhood and greater planning area is bordered by Interstate-280 at the north; Almaden Expressway, the Guadalupe River and State Route-87 to the east; Hillsdale and Camden Avenues to the south; and a zig-zag that borders the city of Campbell on the west side, including State Route 17, Hamilton Avenue, Leigh Avenue, Dry Creek Road, and Bascom Avenue.  See the Google map, here, (directing off our website).
