Topic Areas

The Santa Clara - River Road Implementation Planning Team (SCRRIPT) worked with residents of both neighborhoods to identify priority topic areas to be addressed through this neighborhood planning project. Working groups made up of interested residents have been established on these topics and they began identifying neighborhood values and developing vision statements in Feb 2018.

Creating a Neighborhood Vision

Working group members used the above materials, in addition to everything on the what have we heard page, to identify neighborhood values and key themes. These values and themes were the basis for creating a vision statement describing how the neighborhood will look, feel, and function 20 years from now. 


Technical Advisory Committee

The River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Planning Process relies on the expertise of a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC is composed of City and partner agency staff and serves as an advisory body to working groups, the Community Advisory Committee, and project staff. The TAC represent their own project or departmental expertise and communicate how the neighborhood-specific issues fit within the broader City/County context.
