On Tuesday September 11th, the County Board of Supervisors will consider what to do with the old San Jose City Hall annex, which has been abandoned for the last 12 years. The County plans to demolish the building and replace it with a parking lot, which would also be used as a staging area for construction of the surrounding new Civic Center. However, many homeless advocates think the building is well suited for temporary housing for the county’s homeless population, and are rallying around a proposal submitted by Garden City Construction’s James Salata and supported by John Sobrato of The Sobrato Organization to house 120-140 homeless people there.

The agenda for the meeting will be posted on the County’s website, most likely on the 6th or 7th of September
