Several people had asked questions regarding the responsibility of residents with pets. In San Jose, dog and cat owners (or walkers) must immediately remove droppings from private or public property. Dogs and cats over four months old must be vaccinated for rabies and licensed. Licensed pets are issued a numbered tag which will identify the owner by calling City of San Jose Animal Care & Services Dept. Lost, injured, or any other animal control problem should be reported to the City of San Jose Animal Care & Services Department at (408) 501-2130. Our City's goal is to have off-leash dog areas in each Council District. Our City Council District 3's off-leash dog park opened in August 2003, has grass, trees and benches with separate areas for large and small dogs. Watson Dog Park is located at East Jackson and North 22nd Streets.

Mineta San Jose International Airport's Neighborhood Services Group has scheduled ten community meetings on the Airport Improvement Program for each city council district in San Jose. They held their meeting for District 3 on March 10 at Bachrodt School. Along with staff from the airport, the meeting included staff from Gensler Architects and the San Jose Public Art Program, presenting information on the architectural design process for the new airport and how public art plays a role in the process. The meeting had 25 attendees from the community.
How tall will the parking garage located in front of the terminal be which will be visible as we look across to the airport from our neighborhood ?
The parking structure will be 10 stories tall and public art can help aesthetically with the exterior of the parking structure.
Are there any plans to work with the Guadalupe River Park?
Yes, there is an effort to coordinate with the Guadalupe River Park Master Plan and the Trail Master Plan team to incorporate the river*s trails that run in the vicinity of the airport.
How environmentally *green* do we plan to make this facility?
We have dedicated staff to ensure we build an environmentally friendly building and are currently analyzing life cycle costs. We are striving for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification that distinguishes building projects that have demonstrated a commitment to sustainability by meeting the highest performance standards. Airport staff would like to thank those RGN residents who participated in the meeting. We encourage folks to stay involved in the process and look forward to attending future community meetings.
The Santa Clara Valley is
To those who hold it dear
A veritable paradise
Each season of the year.
One loves it best in April
When the fruit trees are in bloom
And a mass of snowy blossoms
Yields a subtle sweet perfume.
When orchard after orchard
Is spread before the eyes
When the whitest of white blossom
'Neath the bluest of blue skies.
No brush can paint the picture
No pen describe the sight
That one can find in April
Why is my neighbor getting treatment and I am not?
All of the homes currently under construction or completed construction in Rosemary Gardens have been tested about 4 years ago and tested above 45dB, making them eligible for treatment. At the time, according to the base map approved by the FAA, the homes were eligible for *focused* treatment, however, with the new Noise Exposure Map, the Airport recognized they fell within a *proposed* treatment area, therefore, have received full acoustical treatment.
When is the next phase of acoustical treatment work in the Rosemary Gardens Neighborhood expected to take place?
The next phase of treatment, according to the FAA approved base map includes approximately 30 homes that fall along San Juan and Santa Paula, between Rosemary and Ferrari Avenue. The ACT Program has already made contact with those homeowners and expects construction to begin sometime this Fall or Winter.
What does Acoustical Treatment include?
Typical acoustical treatments include new windows, doors, central air and heat, all approximately $34,000 worth of work.
Can the Airport reimburse me for windows I have installed myself?
Unfortunately, the Airport does not have a reimbursement program at the time.
What can I do if my home is located outside of the eligibility area?
The Airport recognizes your home is impacted by noise, however we are required to only insulate homes within the contour lines approved by the FAA. The City of San Jose's Housing Department has a grant and low interest loan program you can tap into to see if you may be eligible for any rehabilitation work for your home. Call Housing at (408) 277-2907.
