The development of the Downtown Gilroy Station Area Plan commenced in April 2015. Following a review of existing conditions, the project team created three alternative land use and circulation plans for Downtown Gilroy. The project team evaluated these alternative land use and circulation plans and produced an Alternatives Analysis Report. This fully illustrated booklet summarizes the alternatives and discusses the positives and negatives of each alternative. It is available for download on the DOCUMENTS page. On October 20, 2016, the City held an open house community meeting for the public to provide comments on the alternatives and high-speed rail vertical alignment options. Community input received at public meetings and guidance from the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) helped create a Draft Preferred Alternative. The Draft Preferred Alternative was presented before the City Council on January 17, 2017 where they reviewed and provided comments on the Draft Preferred Alternative. The City Council will hold another meeting sometime in May to review a comparative analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of two alternative station locations so that the Council can modify its recommendation to the California High-Speed Rail Authority for a preferred alternative, if needed. The exact date will be provided once a date is confirmed.
