Community Input Sought for Santa Clara’s Patrick Henry Drive Specific Plan Projects

Residents will have a chance this month to weigh in on elements of the City’s recently adopted Patrick Henry Drive Specific Plan in north Santa Clara near Mission College.

The Specific Plan provides guidance for future land uses and urban design elements centered around a vision that transforms approximately 74 acres of 1970s-era office park space into a cohesive, high-density mixed-use community including offices, residential units and public facilities.

On December 5, the City will hold a virtual community meeting to review plans for SummerHill’s proposed 307-unit apartment building at 3000 Patrick Henry Drive featuring ground floor retail and two spaces to be dedicated to the city — a 5,000 s.f. community arts center and a 9,250 s.f. mini-park for the arts offering a variety of outdoor art-focused experiences to be curated by the City. The meeting will be held Monday, December 5 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Click here for details.

The community can provide feedback on the arts center and the mini park for the arts via this survey. Residents can view the plans in detail, provide input, and request features through December 13.
