Road Work Along East Campbell Avenue Beginning April 14

Posted on April 11th, 2013 by DCBA

Beginning April 14, 2013, San Jose Water Company will be conducting road work in Downtown Campbell, 10pm-6am, Sunday nights to Friday mornings. On some days, the work hours may be extended to 10am. Expect road closures during those hours. Water services will not be interrupted.

Why the hassle? San Jose Water Company will be retiring its 79 year old water main in Downtown Campbell and will replace the main with new pipeline along East Campbell Avenue from 3rd Street to the railroad tracks. The work will also include a water main replacement on Central Avenue from East Campbell Avenue to City Hall.

Beginning the week of April 21, 2013 there will be Mainline trenching on E. Campbell Avenue. This work will progress from east to west, block by block. It is anticipated that it will take approximately one week to trench per city block.

For more information, please read the SJ Water Company's notice; download the work map; or contact San Jose Water Company's Contractor, Lewis & Tibbitts, at 408-925-0220 or San Jose Water Company at 408-279-7900.

March in the 2013 Bunnies & Bonnets Parade!

Posted on February 25th, 2013 by DCBA

The annual Bunnies and Bonnets Parade in Downtown Campbell is a family and community affair held on the day before Easter following the City of Campbell's annual Easter Egg Hunt. In past years, the parade has featured marching bands, baton dancers, classic cars, bagpipers, floats, dog clubs, and other assorted things of interest that make up the Campbell area community.

The parade is now approaching its 15th anniversary and we're seeking participants to help us make this year's parade the best one yet. If your group, club, or organization would like to march/participate in this year's parade on Saturday, March 30, 2013 at 12pm, please download the 2013 Parade Application Form and return it by Wednesday, March 13, 2013.

Participation is free for the general community and $50 for commercial floats. The parade will not be judged and no prizes will be awarded. This is all just for fun!
