1Tree CanopyBenefit from the documented health and well being attributes that a healthy tree canopy provides. Well chosen clean and drought tolerant trees should be placed where the City can maintain them and the sidewalks surrounding them.3340 Mt Vista Dr, San Jose, California, 95127On Ballot
2Neighborhood Tree Maintenancebe eased of the burden of the costs to trim and thin high maintenance trees planted by the City or developer many years ago. Correct trimming and thinning also makes the trees safer and less prone to losing large limbs.3340 Mt Vista Dr, San Jose, California, 95127
3Sidewalk Maintenancebe eased of the burden of the cost to repair or replace sidewalk that has been damaged by a street tree that is no longer maintained by the City.3340 Mt Vista Dr, San Jose, California, 95127
4Expansion of Street Teamsto reduce common litter and set and example for those who are responsible. Include an early evening shift so that as many residents as possible can witness the Team doing their good work.3340 Mt Vista Dr, San Jose, California, 95127

6Garbage/Greenwaste Binsoffer discounted or free upgrade to larger garbage bin and/or greenwaste bin to reduce street litter and greenwaste debris left by the scooper3340 Mt Vista Dr, San Jose, California, 95127
7Ehance Tween/Teen Game Program at Hillview Libraryconnect youth to their community and close the poverty gap by increasing literacy and providing educational opportunities, our library has designed a number of programs to keep at-risk children off the streets and engaged in a safe, learning-conducive environment. One such program is called Game Zone Fridays. Once a week, Game Zone Fridays transforms the libraryÕs large community room into an interactive gaming space for youth.San Jose Public Library-Hillview BrOn Ballot
8Increasing Community Awareness through Digital Signagebe more aware of the free resources, programs and services Hillview Branch Library provides (as well as San Jose Public Library as a whole). We are requesting funding for a large outdoor LED sign that will sit near the Hopkins Drive and advertise our programs and services to connect more community members with the information and resources they need. An example sign is attached.San Jose Public Library-Hillview Br
9Family Bingo at the Libraryhave fun together participating in an activity every age group enjoys: Family Bingo! This program promotes literacy skills for the entire familyÑfrom young children to adolescents to adultsÑespecially to Spanish-speaking and Vietnamese-speaking customers living in the surrounding Alum Rock community, who the Library wants to more actively engage. Besides promoting literacy, the Family Bingo programÕs other objective is to provide a safe place for our community to come together as a family.Dr Roberto Cruz-Alum Rock Branch LibraryOn Ballot
10Install Crosswalk Warning Light SystemsDuring the traffic commute hours (morning and evening) this area has high traffic. The crosswalks in this area are difficult to see and cars are typically traveling at a decesnt speed before they see a pedestrian in the crosswalk (Address is approx due the crosswalks being on CA-130). This proposal is for both crosswalks in that area.3131 Alum Rock Ave, San Jose, California, 95127
11Signage - Keep San Jose Beautifulbe encouraged and educated to keep our neighborhoods free of blight.3340 Mt Vista Dr, San Jose, California, 95127On Ballot
12additional waste/garbage bins around James Lick High Schoolreduce the amount of litter that is thrown on the floor that makes its way into the streets and storm drains headed to the bay. Around the permiter of James Lick High School there are 2 trash bin located at the bus stops (typically full). The perimeter that James Lick occupies in large and there should be more than 2 trash bin to support this area.57 N White Rd, San Jose, California, 95127
13Let There Be Lights!I think the area would benefit greatly if it had more street lights. It is often too dark to feel comfortable and taking a walk with younger kids is not desirable. As a driver, it would make spotting pedestrians easier too.49 Stewart Ave
14Community MuralProvide a community mural. ItÕs a larger than life representation of a communityÕs histories and hopes. Community murals provide a cost-effective method for people to publicly celebrate those things that they consider to be truly important, identifying themselves to each other as well as to visitors to the community. If possible could we have community muralists orchestrate design and painting processes but have them create opportunities for both skilled and less skilled participants (Y Market)306 S White Rd, San Jose, California, 95127
15Startup Homeowners AssociationGet to know one another. Also beheld to keep there property, community, and new community park clean and safe.District 5
16Capitol Park - Outdoor activities/ walking trail and pet friendly parkI would like to see Capitol park having after school activities, such as basketball & soccer, or something similar to the boys and girls club. It would be great to have a walking trail and special area we can walk our pet dogs.2475 Van Winkle Ln, San Jose, California, 95116
17Need Speed Radar Sign on S. Jackson Ave (Storybook Neighborhood)My neighborhood desperately needs a Speed Radar sign on Jackson Ave off the 680 freeway exit. We have speeders up and down this street at all hours of the day. It feels and sounds like we live in front of a expressway. If we have speed radar signs installed along this street, drivers will realize how fast their driving, maybe they will slow down to the speed limit.116 Fleming AveOn Ballot
18No Bicycle Riding on the Sidewalk Signs in D5There is not a day I'm backing out of my driveway and I have someone riding their bicycle fast on the sidewalk. Constituents in D5 should be aware they cannot ride their bicycle on the sidewalk. By having these signs on busy streets such as: S. Jackson Ave, Story Rd, King Rd, Alum Rock Ave, White Rd, in front of stores, restaurants, schools and medical buildings, just to name of few this should avoid dangerous accident from happening.S Jackson Ave, San Jose, California, 95116
19Litted Sidewalk is Needed on S. Jackson Ave (Off 680 freeway and Bambi Ln)I would like to see a litted sidewalk on S. Jackson Ave This intersection is located off the 680 freeway and Bambi Ln. This location has 2 VTA stops (Bus Route 70) across from each other. In the evening, the street is semi dark with the new yellow/orange street lights. It would be great if we can have a litted sidewalk or something similar at this intersection for bus riders and people trying to walk across the street on this is a VERY busy intersection.S Jackson Ave, San Jose, California, 95116
20Need a Crossing Guard(s) at Aptitud Community AcademyAptitud Community Academy desperately needs a school crossing guard(s) in the morning and afternoon during the school year. Its a complete chaos in the morning dropping off students in front of the school. If the school could have a couple of crossing guards in front of school that would make things easier for everyone and it will avoid a dangerous accident involving children, parents and school staff.2475 Van Winkle Ln, San Jose, California, 95116
21Deliver a pathway for young girls 4th - 7th grade to develop a healthy sense of self, personal leadership skills, confidence, encouragement and support.A program that helps young girls to develop a healthy sense of self, personal leadership skills, personal confidence and encouragement through mentorships and speaking engagements by reliable professional women and organizations. The end goal for the girls being higher self-esteem, new skills to cope with tough situations they are facing, the ability to say ÔnoÕ when appropriate and have a safe place to ask questions or seek assistance as needed.Alum Rock, California, United States
22Gather Tech companies that are changing the future to present concept and gadgets.Be inspired and motivated to be better and to be informed what is to come in the next couple years. Gadgets to be presented should be autonomous vehicle, Virtual Reality, Hololens , Hyperloop, Flying Vehicles, etc.Mt Pleasant High School
23to gather Silicon Valley Tech companies to present their technology and gadgets.be inspired and motivated to become better and to let them know what is to com e in the future.Presentations would be made by companies showing technology like autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, hololens, flying vehicles etc. Public speakers should attend to tell their story of how they found success.Mt Pleasant High School
24To hold live music events at local district parksEnjoy their community with each other and promote local park use while also using the event to inform the communities on how to keep their parks and communities clean. The event can hold acoustic and electrified instrumented music acts, though acoustic is more preferable since less power supply would be needed. There will need to be a PA system for the musicians instruments if they intend to hold large crowds. If small crowds are held, the acoustic instruments or amplifiers should suffice.1358 Park Pleasant Cir
25to improve the walkway and bridge on Clayton Road between Mt. McKinley and Story Ln.travel across the bridge safely, I propose that both the entry and exits of the walkways to cross the bridge be paved. This will allow more people to use the walkway and not cross on the road. The walkway is often, muddy, dirty and uneven, making walking or biking dangerous. I also request that the concrete on the bridge be fixed as it is crumbling and cracking. This little bridge slows traffic & creates a small town neighborhood feeling to the community and should be improved.1425 Clayton Rd, San Jose, California, 95127
26upgrade the Marten Ave. crosswalk near Mount Pleasant High school with flashing lights.safely cross the street, the existing crosswalk on Marten Ave. near Mount Pleasant High school needs to be upgraded with flashing lights. This will increase visibility and allow students to cross safely and will help slow traffic. Almost all high schools in the area have this safety feature and Mt. Pleasant students deserve the same.3158 Marten Ave, San Jose, California, 95148On Ballot
27to have music classes taught to those who do not have the necessary resources to learn an instrumenthave their child/teenager, who does not have access to taking classes at school or a private institution, learn a musical instrument. The class will be held two or three times a week and the program will last for 4-6 months. The goal of the program is to give a child the confidence to pursue learning a musical instruments. The focus of the class will be to show them the basic fundamentals of learning the class provided instrument whether it be guitar, violin, piano, etc.40 N White Rd

70Traffic calming for an intersection of an unsafe bridge exit.avoid harmful collisions with pedestrians and bicyclists. Create a chicane or bulbout to slow down traffic as Lavonne Ave and Sunset Ave intersect.
