Greenbelt Alliance

Through numerous community discussions, residents and business owners in the West San Carlos and South Bascom Urban Villages have called for streets that are safer for people walking and biking. One priority in the area is the completion of a bikeway on Scott Street.

This spring, Street Plans worked with Greenbelt Alliance, the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association and other partners to create a 2-day “demonstration project” showing what a safer Scott Street could look like. The project featured temporary sharrow markings on the street (in advance of a planned permanent sharrow installation by SJDOT this summer), an energizer station with free bike repair, and a bike-themed block party. Thank to all the partners who made this event such a success: Performance Bicycle, Our City Forest, San Jose Fire Department, San Jose DOT, Be The Change Yoga & Wellness, Neighborland and our many neighbors and volunteers!
