Dear Neighbors,

On October 17, 2017, the City Council passed the Firearm Safe Storage Ordinance, which requires firearms to be safely stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock upon leaving your residence to help prevent gun thefts. This ordinance requires the locked container to be meet state standards which can be found here: https://oag.ca.gov/firearms/gunsafe. The state roster of Firearm Safety Devices can be found here: https://oag.ca.gov/firearms/fsdcertlist. This ordinance goes into effect on December 1, 2017.

Tonight, the City of San Jose proclaimed November 17, 2017 as World Prematurity Day to recognize November as Prematurity Awareness month. I️ was especially honored to be joined by the Rincon family, James, Amy and Miranda, who is this year’s March of Dimes Silicon Valley ambassador. City Hall Rotunda will be lighted purple this week in honor of World Prematurity Month.

Starting today, every child to writes a letter to Santa and drops it off in the mailbox next to the tree in Santana Row Park will receive a reply from the red-clad, jolly fellow!

Each letter must include the child’s name and a mailing address. The letters must be dropped in the box by Dec. 11 to guarantee a response before Christmas.

Santana Row Park is located between Z Gallerie and Left Bank Brasserie.

Dear Neighbors,

Working with our City staff, we recently updated our City Council priorities list. This is a semi-annual process in which the City Council clarifies the policy initiatives that City staff should develop over the next 6 to 12 months. This process is completed in two steps. First, the Council votes on all the nominated ideas and is allowed 1 vote per item. My allotted 6 votes went to the following items:
• Ban gasoline-powered leaf blowers
• Private property graffiti abatement
• Develop innovative strategies to hire crossing guards
• Safe parking program
• Downtown zoning code update (responding to the housing crisis)
• Impact fee deferred payment program for housing (responding to the housing crisis)

Click (http://sanjose.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?publish_id=0acd6f09-bb60-11e7-9d6f-00505691de41) to watch a clip from the City Council meeting. After the first phase of voting was complete, we ranked the priorities that received 5 or more votes. The ban on gasoline-powered leaf blowers received only 3 votes and did not advance to the priority-ranking vote. In the priority-ranking phase, each person can apportion their 6 votes however they want. Based on input from residents and stakeholders over the past 9 months, I allotted my 6 votes to prioritize the following:

• 2 votes: Downtown Zoning Code Update (Responding to the Housing Crisis)
• 2 votes: Impact Fee Deferred Payment Program for Housing (Responding to the Housing Crisis)
• 1 vote: Safe Parking Program
• 1 vote: Sanctioned Encampments

Each of these issues received enough votes to be ranked in the top 10. However, the issues we have chosen to prioritize will not automatically be implemented as ordinances or policy. Instead, these issues will be studied by City staff before coming back for Council consideration. In other words, stay tuned! The policy details for each item will be fleshed out over time, and then the City Council will vote whether to implement the fully developed idea.
