The most common question we receive is… what is going to happen to the historic theater and signage that is the gateway into the Burbank district. While the future is still uncertain, you can participate by joining or attending the local community meetings.
Burbank Theater and the tower sign while surrounded on all sides by the City of San Jose, today continues to be part of the unincorporated sections of Santa Clara County, the community association works closely with the Santa Clara County Supervisor for the District and in a model that we all would hope is how the United States of America really does work. The Supervisor or staff from District 4 personally attend each community meeting.
Finally your attendance, thoughts, and voice directly matter – as the County has nearly full discretion on what changes happen. For example, if a new developer wanted to come in and bulldoze the Theater and toss the Tower sign into landfill. The County Supervisor would very likely either be able to stop that process completely, or delay it until the community was heard and the concerns met.
If you live or care about the outcome of the Burbank Theater or the Tower Sign itself; please consider attending or joining the Burbank Community Association of Santa Clara County.
