The city of San Jose has now entered the public review process on a redevelopment project in the city called the Williams Plaza. The 1.36-acre development is located on the southeast corner of McLaughlin Avenue and East Williams Court at 510 McLaughlin Avenue.
The new development would allow for the construction of two commercial buildings totaling 20,000 square feet. All existing commercial and residential buildings and structures on the site will be demolished.
The project proposes to clear the existing vegetation from the site. This would include 10 trees, four of which are ordinance sized. Landscaping, including planted trees, is proposed along the project perimeter and within the parking area.
The public review period for this draft Mitigated Negative Declaration started on May 8th and will run until May 27th of this year. There will be a public hearing on this project on June 3rd to provide an opportunity for public comments on the draft.
The adoption of the Mitigated Negative Declaration does not constitute approval of the proposed project. The final decision to approve or deny the project will be made separately as required by city ordinance.
