Dear Mr. Crabtree,

Thank you for allowing Greenbelt Alliance the opportunity to comment on the City of San Jose’s plans to address climate change as part of the General Plan update process. For over 50 years Greenbelt Alliance has been the Bay Area’s advocate for open spaces and vibrant places. At Greenbelt Alliance, we recognize the critical link between land use and climate change and are pleased that San Jose is focusing on infill development near transit stations as part of Envision San Jose 2040. Action is needed at all levels of government, including the municipal level, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a safe and healthy level. Greenbelt Alliance would like to see San Jose adopt a climate-friendly General Plan that can be a model to other cities throughout California.
