Guadalupe Trail Master Plan – City of San José

Issue: The City of San José had a deficit of parkland to serve its residents and most of the city was urbanized. However, there was undeveloped vacant land along a stream that ran through the city.

Solution: Prepared the Expanded Initial Study to evaluate the environmental effects of constructing a 4.2 mile linear park along the Guadalupe Creek corridor in the City of San José. Tasks included managing others in the project team and coordinating directions from three primary agencies/firms: the project sponsor, City of San José Parks Division; the landscape architecture firm designing the project, Callander Associates; and the City of José Planning Department. This analysis was a necessary step towards the creation of the park that now serves city residents.
