    I 100% oppose this Dorm project. I know it looks good politically (aligned with Sacramento) for those wishing to climb the ladder. However, the impact of housing 200 people at this kind of cost is irresponsible whether or not the funding is coming from the state. Especially, with the lack of enhanced services to protect us and surrounding environment. As soon as the current set of city politicians move on, the funding can get cut or use can change to house whoever the next politicians decide.

    I absolutely oppose tiny hones construction at the corner of Bernal and Monterey. As a Tax paying citizen you have to listen to our voice. This is unacceptable. We have children and grandchildren in this neighborhood. it’s a busy intersection and unsafe as it is. Accident are waiting to happen.

    This site for tiny homes is too close to neighborhoods and too far from services. How can it be that this was voted on earlier this week and construction has started two days later? This was never something that you wanted input from the neighborhood on, it was a back room deal that was already done before making it public. Shame on you!

    The proposed location is not feasible, dangerous, and services needed would not be readily accessible to the population that would be housed here.

    This E-mail is in regards to the “Tiny Homes” site proposal off of Silicon Valley Road. The establishment of this type of community in an area away from necessary services along with lack of viable transportation options coupled with the proximity to schools is of major concern.

    Do not build these tiny homes. What a waste of our tax dollars and will ruin the prices of homes, endanger the safety of children near the metcalf park nearby, and be an eye sore of the Bernal area. It would be better to spend the money of this project on the homeless willing to re-enter society by finding them jobs or rehabilitation. This will not fix the situation and is just putting a bandaid on that will just fall off. Stop this project!

NO MORE LICCARDO OR JIMINEZ IN NEXT ELECTION. MAYBE U NEED TO BE RECALLED NOW. LYING, UNTRUSTWORTHY SNAKES. DEMOCRACY MY A**

    I’m so happy someone cares about our homeless. We need to start somewhere! This seems like a good start!

    Why do we have to get 2 to in home locations in our neighborhood? We trusted you when you said that there will be one in each district. Are you putting 2 right in your own neighborhood? Jimmenez, when you have time home locations next to your house I will not oppose having then in my neighborhood. And regarding your job? Believe you me - it's gone.

    We do not support this. You cannot build this in our backyards. We are raising young children in these neighborhoods and it is unsafe for them to walk home from school. They leave a mess and expect everyone to clean up after them. We will not allow this.

    I’m strongly opposed to this! You put homeless people in danger next to a high traffic road. There is no public transportation available for them so expect a lot of accidents. There is no grocery stores as well as hospitals nearby. Please reconsider.

    Strongly support this proposal for construction of tiny homes. Our communities are stronger when we all have a reliable, dignified places to live. In contrast, our communities are weaker when we insist on "passing the buck" for someone else to act. Having a NIMBY outlook is short-sighted and self-defeating.

    I disagree with this amendment to this type of housing near our schools and residence. I have to drive by these structures everyday as I take my child to school and it is very inappropriate for her to see such structures. My tax dollars and my property taxes do not belong in such projects. Fix our local schools first!

    We STRONGLY OPPOSE introducing not only one, but two, sites for these tiny homes/dorms just footsteps away from our families and schools. This has all been done with complete disregard of the residents. The crime has already been an increasing issue. Do not introduce yet another reason for us to worry about our safety!!!

    I oppose tiny homes at corner aloof Bernal / Monterey Hwy.
    There are no facilities for them. There isn’t even a bus service.
    The homeless would bring crime And blight on our peaceful community.

    Totally Unacceptable to ram this through under the guise of Covid without appropriate community feedback.

    I am a healthcare worker. We treat the COVID-19 patient as airborne precaution patient.
    Even though we provide the housing to homeless, they won’t stay in the shelter always. It will affect out community and kids because they are coming to our gas station and grocery market.
    Elementary school around the area is within a mile. The children will be exposed to covid and drug and other diseases.
    I am against building tiny homes in south san jose.

    Stop with the dirty politics! Stop deleting our opposing comments! D-2 citizens opposed the Bernal/Monterey site before, and we oppose it again. Homeless with Covid-19 need to be put in the hospital like the rest of the affected. The ones least infected can be put in motels like our governor said, and Santa Clara County has plenty per a Mercury News article. The mayor and D2 council person are a disgrace!

    The goal should be to spend money and time on issues that reduce infections and restart the local economy. Do not begin building of Tiny Homes for the homeless during this time. Hotels/Motels have vacancy. Use this space to place the homeless to provide immediate cover. Put this project on hold. The city will likely start seeing a decrease of sales revenues and property taxes will follow if the economic downturn persists.
