Five Wounds Urban Village Plan
The Five Wounds Urban Village Plan began with the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace Neighborhood Improvement Plan, which was completed in 2002 under the Strong Neighborhoods Initiative (SNI). One of the central components to the plan was the VTA’s desire to build a BART station at the San Jose Steel site off of 28th street, which was fully explored in the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace BART Station Area Community Concept Plan of 2010.
As part of Envision 2040, the City of San Jose divided the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace Neighborhood Improvement Plan into four separate Urban Village Plans.
The Five Wounds Trail
The Five Wounds Trail will run from the junction of Coyote Creek and Story Road, under I-280 to the back of the iconic Five Wounds Portuguese National Church on East Santa Clara Street. From there, it will proceed north, crossing the old railway bridge over Hwy 101 and connecting to the Coyote Creek Tail and Lower Silver Creek Trail, to provide a crucial East-West link for the citywide trail system.
