CURRENT STATUS, PROGRESS & TIMELINE
"Support Teacher Housing" won the first round, but now the real fight begins. On Tuesday, August 8, the San Jose City Council will hear the case and deliver a final vote on whether the project can continue. If the mayor and council members vote against Support Teacher Housing, the project will be terminated. It's the only project of its kind known in San Jose at this time, while other cities in the region, the state, and the nation are making similar plans. If SJ City Hall votes in support, then the city joins a statewide and national movement to improve teacher recruitment and retention, our city's and county's teacher diversity, and the overall quality classroom experience.
The cause is not yet over and "SUPPORT TEACHER HOUSING" asks you to sign-on, sit-in, speak-out, and spread the word.

On Wednesday 24 May, a community of teachers, parents, and local families took on the Planning Department and won. In addition to the first 300 people who signed up as supporters online, and the 80 who came to the hearing to show their support, and the 50 who spoke at the hearing, Support Teacher Housing is still campaigning its cause, and they're campaigning for real crowd numbers in the showing at city hall, or letters to the council members and mayor.
FYI: comprehensive review of Support Teacher Housing can be found at the website of Stakeholder's for a Safe Green Village, here.
