Santa Clara County controls 55 key acres between downtown San Jose and North San Jose. To determine the best use for the land, the county is seeking the assistance of the private sector. Join us for a discussion about the opportunities for public-private partnerships and good planning at this important site — and how it could serve as a model for other key locations across the county.
