The Reid-Hillview Airport lies on 180 acres of land in East San Jose and is actively used by private pilots of small aircraft, aviation related businesses and aviation education programs. In December 2018, the County Board of Supervisors declined future federal aid for the airport. As part of re-imagining the use of the land, a feasibility study is being conducted based on a market analysis, project precedents and the site’s opportunities and constraints. The feasibility study includes significant community outreach to understand the Community’s vision for the site and will be used by the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors to explore options for the site and ultimately determine the airport’s future.
On Tuesday, February 25th, the County of Santa Clara held the 1st Community Workshop for the Reid-Hillview Airport. Our goal was to engage the East San Jose community and explore the community's vision on the possibilities for the Reid-Hillview site. Due to the public health situation, we postponed our March 18th community workshop #2.
Our original plan was to hold Community Workshop #2 in person, however, given concerns about COVID-19 and the County’s health orders, our team created a virtual community engagement. Our online engagement meeting included a video and a community input survey. Our team thanks the many community members who participated in the survey.
A final report on the re-visioning of Reid Hillview Airport will be available for viewing shortly.
