The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on June 14 to support UrbanConfluence Silicon Valley with a $100,000 grant. Supervisors Cindy Chavez andDave Cortese championed this important project. The supervisors are committed to making Santa Clara County a great place to live.
The project aims to draw residents and visitors from throughout the world and inspire future generations as a powerful and enduring symbol of San Jose, Santa Clara County, and SiliconValley. The historic site will become a living twenty-four-hour-a-day environment where the people of the world eat, drink, gather, and are inspired.
The leaders of this initiative plan to build the most important structure in the history of the region at Arena Green at Guadalupe River Park andGardens and present it as a gift to the world.

· SAP Center
