District's Surplus Land Development
Dear Evergreen Valley College Community:
Thank you for taking the time to get information on the evolving discussions regarding the District's future plans for the underutilized land parcel located at Evergreen Valley College. I wanted to take a quick moment to update you on the current status of the conversation.
The development of this underutilized land will provide ongoing revenue to support student education and the continued growth of student program offerings at Evergreen Valley College. It will also provide our students with nearby services and amenities they have requested for years...(Please click here to continue).
_____The San José-Evergreen Community College District ("District") intends to enter into a long term ground lease with a developer for the approximately 27 acres of land adjacent to Evergreen Valley College ("Surplus Land"). The Surplus Land includes the old District Office site, the existing Police Academy as well as land which is currently not improved. The Surplus Land is adjacent to San Felipe Road and Yerba Buena Road. It is expected that the selected developer will, at its own cost, obtain land use entitlements for the Surplus Land and construct a mixed use project which will probably include, among other uses, multi-family rental housing and retail space. The selected developer will pay a substantial amount of rent to the District. Our goal is to ensure that there are additional resources, especially during economic downturns, to help our students achieve greater success.

Our Workforce Institute is a training partner with many corporations as we work to develop and maintain a vital economy in the “South Bay”.
Demographic changes, economic conditions, educational reforms, and the need for preparing students for postsecondary education prompted Measure G Bond funded initiative to build the Joint Use 21st Century Post-Secondary Education Center in Milpitas.

1. Promote a seamless system of higher education services2. Expand access to higher education in underserved areas of the District3. Improve regional economic development opportunities by providing access to career and technical education
