McAlister

A local resident leveled a conflict-of-interest complaint against Mountain View City Councilman John McAlister last week, casting doubt on the council’s decisions regarding the Los Altos School District’s acquisition of land for a 10th campus.

Mountain View resident Ellyn Berner wrote in a letter that McAlister’s vote on the district’s 10th site constitutes a conflict of interest because he co-owns Stepping Stones preschool, located on the Covington School campus, which leases land from the district.

Community college district weighs November bond measure

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District Board of Trustees plans to discuss Monday whether to place a bond measure on the November ballot, according to Chancellor Judy C. Miner.

“Because we don’t know if we will actually go out for a bond, we have no dollar amount established at this time,” Miner said, noting that $898 million was the highest amount mentioned on a survey the district conducted last October.

The Los Altos School District is now eyeing the Kohl’s site in Mountain View for a 10th campus, larger than the previously targeted property.

A letter Los Altos School District Superintendent Jeff Baier sent to the Mountain View city manager June 8 revealed that the district has changed course in its plan to purchase land for a 10th school site.

Baier unveiled the district’s plans to acquire Federal Realty’s land on the eastern side of The Village at San Antonio Center, where Kohl’s department store sits, rather than continuing to pursue the Old Mill site near California Avenue and San Antonio Road.
