Marten Avenue at Mt. Rushmore
Solar Flashing Red beacon light for stop sign
Many drivers drive though the stop sign.  There's only one sign driving eastbound.  Flashing red light would be remind drivers of the stop sign.  I see SJPD tirelessly monitoring this area and this intersection keeps them quite busy.  Solar Flashing red beacon would aide in this issue and SJPD personnel can relieve themselves from this problem intersection.

We have a lot of cyclist that use the Marten Avenue to cycle up to Mt. Hamilton.  Walk Safe, Cycle Safe and Drive safe would be great on this street and on Mt. Pleasant Road.  It would be welcoming to visiting cyclists and make drivers more cautious when driving.

Mini Senior Center or dog park or exercise park
Congregate and participate in activities at the old FireStation located on 1708 Mt. Pleasant.  Our neighborhood (Mt. Pleasant) doesn't have a park or a community area.  We have libraries, community resources north, south and west of us.  Years ago the bus line was also removed from our area.  Seniors are neglected in busing and community resources.  Put that small piece of land to use.  Too much money?  Build a neighborhood garden, mini dog park, mini exercise park.  Give our neighborhood something.  Anything.

Plantation of palm trees as street trees throughout the city.
See San Jose as a beautiful place to commute through. Palm trees were planted throughout the city in previous years to alleviate blight. This was done all throughout downtown San Jose as well as neighborhoods along San Carlos Street, and throughout Story Rd. Palm street trees image is meant to conjure up feelings of leisure, relaxation and living a good life. We want a consistent street tree and palm trees are already used throughout the city, they do not obstruct the view of local small businesses, they do not obstruct street lights at night which help deter crime. Some species to consider (Washingtonia robusta - if purchased small, cost can be very minimal) (Archontophoenix alexandrae)

The two 3D Printers will be used in an open workshop where teens and adults can create their own 3D designs and then sign-up for "print" time with the 3D printers. Laptops are already available for the public to use to create their designs. We would purchase Up Mini Printers by Tiertime and 2 spools of filament. Estimated cost for the two printers and filament is: $1393.02 (includes tax). The Blu-Ray player will be used for movie days at the library. A majority of new Anime (or Japanese animation) is only available on Blu-Ray and we (the library) would like to be able to show it during potential anime/manga clubs after school for teens. The Blu-Ray player would cost approximately $100-$120 depending on sales tax and shipping. Total estimated cost for the entire request: $1550.00
