Norm Mohr wants to raze the building housing Mohr Clocks on El Camino Real and replace it with a condominium complex.

The Los Altos City Council voted 4-0 for an urgency ordinance enacting a 45-day moratorium on new development in the El Camino Real corridor. Councilman Jean Mordo was absent from the Oct. 4 special meeting, which was called by Councilwoman Megan Satterlee.

The ordinance means the city will issue no new permits for the area generally demarcated as Los Altos’ frontage on El Camino Real until Nov. 18. The ordinance does not apply to projects that are already deemed complete, like the project at 4880 El Camino Real the council recently approved.
