Dog-park proposal gives resident pause

Regarding the Town Crier’s July 27 editorial (“A good time to try off-leash dog areas?):

I own a dog. I walk my dog every day on a leash. Every day I see dogs running at Grant Park unleashed. I have seen dog owners whose homes back up to the park (not all people) open their gates and let their dogs roam unattended, apparently feeling this is an open bathroom for their dogs. I see that the editor wants to have dog parks. Well, can we please consider a few things?

Finding options to save Maltby’s

We noted in the July 20 Town Crier that the sword of Damocles again hangs over Maltby’s Public House restaurant.

As we have been regular customers there for years – as have many others in town – we are wondering whether a solution could be found.

Where’s the plan for district land?

Where is the plan? As a member of the Facilities Master Plan Advisory Committee, we were mandated to help create the best plan and garner community support. The committee was shut down before a plan was created.

I request that the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees direct staff and consultants to develop the best plan, one that solely uses existing land to house 10 school sites. The plan should be made available to the public, including voters, taxpayers and the community, once developed. If there is too much work for staff to do, then I suggest that you reconvene the committee. After all, the committee already asked to explore all options and to continue discussions while removing all the artificial constraints, specifically relocating a district school, district offices or private preschool.
