Communications with Our Neighbors

February 1, 2019

We’re thrilled to announce that the Santa Clara City Council has unanimously approved the Agrihood project to move forward. We couldn’t be more grateful for all the community members who have shaped the Agrihood with their thoughtful input throughout this process. THANK YOU for taking the time to share your stories about why this critical housing and farm space is so important for Santa Clara.

We also want to express our heartfelt gratitude for Mayor Gillmor, the City Council and the talented City staff for working with us to make Agrihood a reality. Their insightful guidance has helped the Agrihood become a special place – one that will promote health, wellness, comfort and joy for all Santa Clarans.

Because of everyone’s hard work, we’re closer than we’ve ever been to achieving our mission to bring an affordable, vibrant housing community to Santa Clara. The Agrihood’s 361 homes (181 of which are below-market), urban farm, retail and open space will provide a uniquely enjoyable place to live and gather for seniors, veterans, middle-income workers, and other community members. And it will connect Santa Clara’s contemporary urban living with our agricultural past.

Our goal throughout this endeavor has been to provide the affordable housing that we urgently need in Santa Clara through a truly creative, community-driven process. Thank you for working with us to make that happen. We look forward to collaborating with you in the months and years ahead as the Agrihood moves from vision to reality.

The Agrihood team is pleased to share that the Santa Clara City Council is scheduled to have the final approval hearing on January 29th at 7PM. We’re beyond heartened by the support the community has shown the project throughout this long process. To secure final approval neighbors will once again need to share their stories about why this critical housing should be approved now.

If you’d like to write the City Council directly or speak during the hearing email Agrihood project manager, Vince Cantore at If you haven’t yet, we hope you’ll take a look at our website and learn about the project’s 361 homes (181 of which are below-market), 1.7-acre urban farm and open space, and sign up to be a supporter!

If you’d like to learn even more, the project has been in the news several times over the last couple of months. Check out the Agrihood in the San Jose Mercury News and Senior Housing News.

Please join us at City Hall at 7PM on January 29th to lend your voice in support of this pivotal housing project. See you there!
