Hope Village Relocation Put on Hold
The proposed relocation of a homeless camp to San Jose's Willow Glen neighborhood was put on hold Monday, and the Valley Water District committee asked the city for an extension as it began looking at other sites.
The proposal to move Hope Village to Willow Glen came six days ago and received major opposition from neighbors. City Councilwoman Dev Davis, along with Hope Village's co-founder, proposed the site just off Highway 87 at Willow and Lelong streets.
She made the announcement at a charged community meeting Monday night.
"Hope Village, for the time being, will not be coming to the Willow And Lelong site," Davis said as the crowd applauded.
