Support 3,250 homes with 30% affordability at Vallco

Come to Cupertino City Hall at 5:00 PM on Tuesday, September 18.

 

The time to act is now!

On September 18th, the Cupertino City Council will consider and vote on the Vallco Specific Plan. Vallco is a fantastic opportunity for the City of Cupertino to position itself as a regional leader in addressing our housing crisis.

SV@Home is advocating to create  the best possible outcome for people of all incomes and abilities who need a place to live in Cupertino via a Vallco Specific Plan that could serve as a meaningful and viable alternative to Sand Hill’s SB 35 project.

In order to bring to fruition the community’s and Council’s priorities to substantially address the community’s housing shortage and serious affordability issues, we urge the City Council to push for a higher level of housing and diversity of affordability options along these lines:

 

3,250 new homes, 30% of which should be affordable including:

  • Half (488 homes) for households earning less than $95,000 per year (Low, Very Low, and Extremely Low incomes), including:
    • 40 homes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ELI) and
    • A Supportive Housing development
  • Half (487 homes) for households earning between $95,000 and $125,000 per year (Moderate Income)

Join SV@Home and other advocates to make your voice heard on the importance of affordable housing on the Vallco site. The City has a deserved reputation for innovation and audacious creativity. Let’s harness that energy to build #HousingForAll.

Please join us on September 18th at the City Council Meeting for this last chance to voice your support for affordable housing at the Vallco property!

SV@Home continues to advocate for as much housing affordability as is feasible on Vallco. We support the Vallco SB35 project application which will create as many as 1,201 affordable homes and an equal number of market-rate residences.

At the same time, we respect the City’s decision to continue with a parallel specific plan process. Further, we believe that the precise plan should allow for at least 3,250 homes and 20 percent affordability. On June 4th, the Cupertino City Council will hold a study session for the Vallco Specific Plan.

Join SV@Home and other advocates to make your voice heard on the importance of affordable housing on the Vallco site.

Come to Cupertino City Hall at 4:00 PM on Monday, June 4.

Vallco is a fantastic opportunity for the City of Cupertino to position itself as a regional leader in addressing our housing crisis.

We can’t afford to rest on our laurels. Please join us on June 4th at the study session to voice your support for affordable housing at the Vallco property!

On April 3, we raised our voices in support of affordable housing at the Cupertino city council meeting, and we were heard.

Let’s stay engaged to make sure those 1,201 affordable homes move from the drawing board to the real world.

Come to Cupertino City Hall at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, April 11.

The city of Cupertino is organizing a series of charrettes from April 9-13 to give the public a chance to help design the new mixed-used complex at Vallco mall with opportunities for public input from 10:00 to 5:00 throughout the week.

This is part of a community planning process that began before the developer’s most recent proposal to include 1,201 affordable homes as part of a new residential complex under the requirements of SB 35.

Let’s make sure those 1,201 affordable homes are incorporated into the final design of the Vallco development.

Come to Cupertino City Hall at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, April 11, to get an update on the planning process and weigh in on the design.
