Welcome to Gilroy Growing Smarter!

Attend a Community Workshop on Land Use in Gilroy

The 2040 General Plan needs our feedback! Topics will include height limits for building construction, density, and flow of traffic, among others. Weigh-in with our GGS values of saving farmland, slower growth, investing in our downtown and infrastructure. 
Help shape the future of Gilroy land use at one of the following workshops:

Monday July 22, 6:30-8:30 pm at Eliot Elementary School 475 Old Gilroy St, Gilroy or
Tuesday July 23, 6:30-8:30 pm
at Luigi Aprea Elementary School 9225 Calle Del Rey, Gilroy

This link gives details on what the alternatives really mean. Passing our Urban Growth Boundary was a huge step, but not the end of our efforts. Come be a part of the solution!

Time for Gilroy’s Public Safety Services to Catch Up with New Housing

Open Letter to Gilroy’s City Council, May 20, 2019

We’re making the following request because smart growth includes making sure that public safety services accompany growth.

We would like you to prioritize and advance construction of both the Glen Loma Fire Station and the 10th Street Bridge. We believe these projects are critical to the provision of improved public safety response times and traffic circulation in the south west quadrant. READ MORE…

Next GGS Member Meeting:

Tues. August 20, 7pm at the Police Station upstairs meeting room. All members are welcome. Contact us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Let's keep Gilroy healthy and beautiful!

Like what GGS is doing? Consider a Seat on a City Commission!

Now is the time to strongly consider applying for one of the City Commissions. We certainly want to support newly elected city council member Carol Marques, and also help the City see development in a more constructive way. Through membership on commissions you can help promote the values of revitalizing downtown and preserving our farmland and open space. Thank you for considering this important way to help both the City and Gilroy Growing Smarter.
