Important Notice

May 25, 2015

We are making progress on our goal of keeping the Sweetwater Cal Fire station open year-round for fire and emergency services. The latest news is that there seems to be a funding source.  A big thank you to Supervisor Dave Cortese. However, we’re not done yet.

We hope that the last step to final approval will be at the June Board meeting:

Board ​of ​Supervisors ​Regular ​Meeting
June 9, 2015
09:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Chambers ​-​ ​Board ​of ​Supervisors
70 W. Hedding St.
San Jose, CA 95110

We are requesting that you do either or both of the following, whether you are a local resident or not, because this is a year-round public safety issue for all traveling Mines Road, Del Puerto Canyon Rd and San Antonio Valley Road.  Also, with the drought conditions there is a fire issue.

The Cal Fire Sweetwater Station  is located at the junction of State Route 130 and Mines Road. 

Whether you are a resident, a landowner, or a visitor using the roads in this area, you will benefit from having local emergency services available year-round. See the petition text for details. (The petition is closed at this time.)
