It’s nearing the end of 2019, and we have our thumbs ready for takes on the most recent local news developments.
Thumbs-up: To the Los Altos School District for finalizing its 10th-site purchase. The complex deal for the 11.65-acre site in the high-density San Antonio area of Mountain View is a huge win for the district – as it currently stands, the district is paying less than $28 million of the $155 million purchase price, with the city of Mountain View (which gets park space) and developers paying the rest. Construction is still years out, and it hasn’t been decided which school will occupy the site. But it’s a certainty that local students will benefit from it.
