Joint Venture produces and provides supporting documents and research for a wide array of Silicon Valley interests. We also help to support our initiatives through the publication of the annual Silicon Valley Index (Now produced by the Institute for Regional Studies, the research arm of Joint Venture Silicon Valley) and a variety of other periodic reports and white papers.

Working with a Technical Advisory Committee and a Policy Advisory Committee, as well as staff representing all 20 cities, both counties, and the five transportation agencies that serve the region, the Main Street Silicon Valley project team developed four “models” to enable cities to manage land-use changes, work cooperatively with each other, and work more effectively with Caltrans. These four models are detailed in the “Models for Moving Forward” section of this report. Two of the models (Models 1 and 3: “A Place-Based Retail Analysis” and “Parcel Assembly for Transit-Oriented Development”) will help cities to guide and encourage projects that stimulate reinvestment and reduce traffic congestion. These models are critical because they provide insights for facilitating development that realizes the vision, described above, of linking high-density housing, economic revitalization and improved transit. Another model (“Regional Implications for Local Transportation-Improvement Decisions”) offers strategies to help communities frame local decisions in a regional context, rather than work at cross-purposes. A fourth model (“Multijurisdictional Partnerships with Caltrans") presents a way to work with Caltrans to implement street-design standards that will transform El Camino Real/Monterey Highway into a street with multimodal transit connecting vibrant commercial districts and residential neighborhoods.
