In a letter to the City Council of San Jose, the president of EvergreenFriends.org
provides a basis for which the City Council should vote
against the proposed private commercial use of Evergreen college land.
The council is scheduled to vote on December 13 on the proposal. Expressed basis
● Original State bond funding to purchase the land prohibits commercial use
to see the land purchase minutes (1967)
to see a State voter approved education bond that excludes commercial use of the land acquired with the funding (1962)
● Approval would exacerbate the existing denial of equal public education against east San Jose residents
● Councilmembers have a responsibily for public welfare and proper use of State bond funds
