Why your home or property could be next

Transit-oriented development strikes fear in the hearts of Naglee Park residents

Concerned Naglee Park neighbors wrote: "The City plans to erect high density housing and commercial facilities to serve those new residents along the BART corridor, thus creating a strong incentive for the Redevelopment to seize all properties in the 'zero block' (along Santa Clara St.) for purposes of commercial development... Should that come to pass, how long could property owners in the "100 block" feel secure?"

If you live within one/half mile of transit or a light rail line or a future light rail line, or you are in an RDA project area or the third of San Jose declared blighted under the Strong Neighborhoods Initiative, then your property is at risk.

Remember - your private property may not be taken for a public building but to be transferred to a private developer for a private, for profit development.
