Plans are underway to renovate Deer Hollow Farm’s historical white barn, the result of a funding partnership between the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, the city of Mountain View and Friends of Deer Hollow Farm.
“Through partnerships, we’re able to preserve this historic ranch and provide environmental education to the community and thousands of local children who enjoy the farm’s outdoor camps and programs each year,” said Ana María Ruiz, general manager of the open-space district.
The barn requires significant structural improvements to ensure its long-term stability, including a new concrete foundation.
The district is beginning design and permitting for the project, with construction planned for fall 2019.
Friends of Deer Hollow Farm and the open-space district received $330,000 from the Tindall Family estate and opted to direct the funds toward barn renovation, which will cost an estimated $450,000 to $600,000. The city of Mountain View will contribute $35,000.
