San Jose plans on building 70 walkable communities called urban villages throughout the city, but achieving this goal will require great attention to urban design on the neighborhood level. Join us for a walking tour in part of the "tri-village area" near Santana Row and Valley Fair to learn more about the key urban design and street design concepts that can create a more people-friendly place. Generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
