The Los Altos City Council at its March 23 meeting approved formation of a New Theater Working Group to make proposals to the council about the feasibility of building a new theater on city property in the downtown area or on the civic center campus.
Vicki Reeder, board president of Los Altos Stage Company, will serve as chair of the group and seeks volunteers to join the effort.
“We are seeking a broad-based committee of about 15 local residents,” Reeder said. “We hope to attract not only theater fans, but other community members with expertise and/or interest in design, architecture, public/private partnerships, fundraising, downtown vitality and more. We want to be diverse in as many ways as possible, including representation from north and south Los Altos.”
The committee will be organized in April and hopes to convene by Zoom in early May. Two 90-minute meetings per month are proposed. Meetings are expected to be virtual until COVID restrictions are lifted and all residents have been vaccinated.
