Document Description
The City of San Jose is proposing to develop the property at 1608 Las Plumas Avenue as an Environmental Innovation Center (EIC). The EIC would host a permanent household hazardous waste collection facility, a clean technology demonstration and prototype manufacturing center (including manfacturing of prototype renewable energy vehicles), workforce training opportunities targeting the green economy, construction and demolition material reuse operations, and shocases for green and energy efficient design and solar energy production. The site would also demonstrate best practices for onsite stormwater management, waste reduction, and sustainable landscaping. The EIC would include the existing Las Plumas warehouse building, and a new 7,000 sf building for the permanent household hazardous waste facility.
