Mountain Bikers unite!! Come to the public hearing to approve mtbing in Calero County Park, San Jose at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 22, 21350 Almaden Road, Casa Granda, New Almaden. Meeting is to decide to approve the master park plan which includes mountain biking.

Suggested comments are those that show mtbing to be beneficial to many kinds of people. 1) mtbing is good for the health of those who may not feel comfortable riding on the streets. 2) trail riding is a good gateway to street riding. Allows riders to build skills that they can take to the street. 3) safer than streets for children learning to ride.

If the plan meets public approval it will go to Parks Commission. Tentative date for the Parks Commission is June 5th, 6:30 p.m.. If approved by Parks Commission, the department will do the CEQA and take it to Board of Supervisors this fall. County Parks has budgeted to work on the plan in 2014 if it can meet all the upcoming review and approval hoops.

Directions: As you enter the town section of New Almaden on the left is the large white historic mining offices which SCC Parks now owns and has restored as a Museum and event center. You can go to parkhere.org and scroll down the left side of the screen where you will find a link to Calero Master Plan. Elish Ryan is the Park Planning Project Manager. The hearing date hasn't been posted yet but her phone number and email are included. You can contact her for confirmation and for addition to her email notification list.
