Special Topic, 6-7 p.m. — Alum Rock Alternative Concept.
VTA is considering the option of bringing BART over Highway 101 at Silver Creek rather than under 101 closer to Five Wounds. The line would then sink into a trench and go underground at Five Wounds Lane. The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the concept and get community reaction before taking the concept any further.
Sixteen of us attended a preliminary meeting on this concept and raised many questions and issues while emphasizing that any alternative must preserve the village plans and the trail and must “do no harm” to the historic church or the adjacent neighborhoods. For further information, see the attached letter.
See you August 12th.
