Cory Neighborhood News and Updates

Changes to City of San Jose Paving Plans along Stevens Creek

Beginning November 1, paving from Monroe to Winchester will occur from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., with the final layer placed during the daytime from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the week of November 7.

Striping and utility adjustments will follow and all of the work will be completed by 11/24. Bike lanes (class II) will be installed through the corridor.

The City initially planned to do the stretch between Monroe and Stern at night, but cold temperatures mean that some of the operations will be moved to daytime hours.

Some of the project will also be pushed to 2023 so that the work will be done before the annual moratorium begins.

Voting Centers are OPEN!

Don’t forget to VOTE by ELECTION DAY, Tuesday, November 8.

From SJ Clean Energy: We still need your help to lower the need for rolling power outages!

Help Prevent Statewide Rolling Power Outages by Conserving Energy from 3PM to 10PM ! 

Today’s Flex Alert from the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) is from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Flex Alerts ask you to use less electricity during critical hours in order to help supply meet demand. If electricity demand exceeds supply, CAISO may call for rotating power outages. 

While Tuesday was the hottest day on record for San José, today is another critical day where we need everyone to reduce the demand on the electricity grid through use of backup generators and other conservation measures. 

Reducing energy consumption at your business can help prevent rolling outages: 
Shift energy use to before 3 p.m. or after 10 p.m. Use backup generation* from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Set A/C to 78 degrees or higher from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., as health permits Ask employees to work from home and power down around 3 p.m., if possible Turn off unnecessary lighting and unplug unused appliances Sign up for the Emergency Load Reduction Program to get paid for the energy you save 

*Consistent with the Governor’s emergency proclamation, any backup generators may be used to shift demand off the grid during a Flex Alert.  The emergency proclamation suspends air district requirements. Please see this fact sheet that summarizes the actions of the emergency proclamation.

For more tips, visit or   

Safety first: Make sure generators are placed outside in a well-ventilated area. Do not put it on dry grass or near any flammable materials. Read the owner’s manual and take all necessary safety precautions. 

NOTE: While no rotating outages have occurred, some San José residents and businesses have been experiencing unplanned power outages due to PG&E equipment failure. Visit PG&E’s outage center for more information on current outages. 
Thank you for your conservation efforts so far!

Please register at to obtain the meeting Zoom link. 
 Who:All San José residents are invited! City staff will present an overview, and there will be a breakout session where you can talk with staff and each other. Spanish and Vietnamese language interpretation will be available.
 Background:The voices of all San José community members are critical to shaping the future of housing. 

All California cities and towns are currently updating the Housing Element of their general plans, which are the blueprint for how cities develop and grow. In San José, residents are encouraged to participate in our process for the Housing Element Update. At the December 13 community meeting, our focus is on the fair housing component of the Housing Element Update. 

For the first time, the state is requiring cities to include an assessment of fair housing; a site inventory; and programs that take meaningful action to combat discrimination, overcome patterns of segregation, and address racial and economic disparities in housing. Learn more about this assessment at

“To overcome patterns of segregation and to address the disparities in the quality of our neighborhoods, we need to listen to and learn from each other,” said Jacky Morales-Ferrand, Housing Department Director. “I’m excited to have community members join the meeting on December 13 where we’ll all learn more about what fair housing means and share our experiences and ideas.” 

“Beyond adding more housing units and addressing affordability, I’m excited to see the newly added focus on fair housing as we update our housing strategies,” said Chris Burton, Director of the Planning, Building and Code Enforcement Department. “We look forward to hearing from community members as we undertake this important work.”
