San Jose has Sufficient Housing Planned: Existing General Plan includes 60,000+ Units*

*Does not include potential units in Evergreen, Coyote Valley, or South Almaden Valley


San Jose’s Employment Lands

  • Definition: Non-residential designated land supporting private-sector employment

  • High Impact: Employment lands provide 60% of City Revenues

  • Limited Supply: Only 15% of City land is designated as employment land


Since 1990, San Jose has Converted 9%of all Employment Lands

Total Converted Acreage 1,400

Acres of Employment Land Available

Conversion rate nearly doubled in recent period:

1990-2000: 68.6 ac/yr

2001-2006: 119.7 ac/yr


San Jose has lost over 1,400 acres of Employment Land since 1990

Revenues from Various Land Uses

**Employment lands generate significantly more revenue than residential uses (<55 Units/Acre)


Framework for the Preservation of Employment Lands (2007)

  • No Net Loss of Heavy and Light Industrial Acreage

  • Retain Citywide Job Capacity

  • Maintain Employment Lands for Non-Residential Uses


Framework for the Preservation of Employment Lands

  • Discourage Conversion in Key Employment Areas


Opportunities for Action

  • Link with “sustainability” objectives

  • Foster green businesses

  • Encourage a real mix of uses at transit

  • Facilitate regional solutions
