Unfortunately, due to Backyard SJ having to close its doors sooner than expected, this event has been canceled.
Do you have a great idea for improving public space in San Jose? Do you see a parking space, street corner or empty lot and imagine it as something better? Bring your best civic proposals before a panel of local community leaders, led by Local Color, for an evening of community idea sharing.
