Neighborhood Business District Overlay planned for Winchester Boulevard

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

The City of San Jose Planning Division and Winchester Neighborhood Action Coalition (NAC) are sponsoring a community meeting on Thursday, March 25, about a proposed General Plan amendment to add a Neighborhood Business District Overlay to Winchester Boulevard, generally from Stevens Creek Boulevard to Hamilton Avenue. The meeting will be held at the Winchester Mystery House from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

Business District Overlay

The Neighborhood Business District Overlay would facilitate new businesses on the corridor. The overlay does not change the land use designations nor zoning districts. If approved, most ground floor businesses would have a reduced parking requirement and additional signage.

These changes will be described at the meeting and residents will have an opportunity to ask questions.

For more information, you can contact Laurel Prevetti, City of San Jose Department of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement at (408) 535-7901 or
