Group Description

The Washington area is a community with many strengths, including its family orientation, cultural identity, and stability. Over time, however, these strengths have been challenged by high crime rates, substandard housing, marginal condition of public infrastructure, and other issues. The City of San José is committed to improving living conditions in neighborhoods facing such challenges. The Washington Neighborhood Revitalization Plan is designed to focus City services and programs toward comprehensive improvements in Washington by combining the strengths of the community with the resources of the City.

The 550-acre Washington revitalization area is bounded by Route 87 to the west, Interstate 280 to the north, South First Street/Monterey Road to the east, and the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks south of Bellevue Avenue to the south.

In 1990, there were 10,136 people residing in the Washington area. The revitalization area is comprised of five individual neighborhoods: Guadalupe-Washington, Tamien, Goodyear-Mastic, Alma, and Tamien. Housing in this area consists primarily of single family homes, with a mix of duplexes, fourplexes, apartments, and townhouses. The area also contains Washington Elementary School, the Tamien multi-modal transit station, various community facilities, and commercial and industrial businesses.
