Lunchtime Forum

For the past two years, SPUR, in collaboration with the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy, has been undertaking a multi-phase study that plans for the future of the Guadalupe River Park, one of downtown San José’s most important, but underutilized, assets. Recent studies done as part of this effort have focused on both the river’s natural ecology and its current and potential economic impact. What was discovered during those analyses and, more importantly, how should the city leverage the abundant resources that the Guadalupe River Park offers? Join us for a discussion about the next steps that San José must take to realize the potential of the Guadalupe River and its surrounding areas as an urban amenity that is accessible to all.
