SILICON VALLEY COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS & FRIENDS OF LOS GATOS CREEK MEET SUPERVISOR CORTESE AT A CREEK CLEAN-UP

THIS MORNING OVER 100 VOLUNTEERS MET AT TWO LOCATIONS ON THE LOS GATOS CREEK TRAIL FOR THE FOURTH ANNUAL SILICON VALLEY COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE “COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP DAY”: that was at (1) the old Willow Glen Trestle between Coe Ave and Lonus Streets and (2) across from 595 Bird Avenue at a parking lot.

FOLGC volunteers were joined with those from the Commercial Real Estate Association.   This was a repeat of Steve Holmes’ partnership from last year, when he launched Friends of Los Gatos Creek.  This time around, the creek clean-up volunteers were joined by Supervisor Dave Cortese and members of his office.  Supervisor Cortese joined-in while wearing his Levi’s and work shoes.

Holmes has also since announced plans to start clean-ups for the Guadalupe River.  De·Anza Post reported that earlier:

The location of today’s safety information and training meeting was in front of the San Jose Taiko building.

As far as conditions in the creek, if it were not for a few puddles, the creek bed was dry.   Drought conditions are apparent, as see here in this other story:
