When Los Altos Hills resident Scott Vanderlip imagines the future of town hall, he envisions classrooms buzzing with activity, dinner functions capable of accommodating 120 people and picnickers lazing on a grassy green lawn. Councilman Roger Spreen’s version includes modestly expanded office space for city staff members, a secure emergency operations center and additional conference rooms. And town hall neighbor Diana Huffman would prefer things remain exactly as they are.
“This isn’t a destination,” Huffman told Planning Commissioners at their Nov. 1 meeting. “You guys do your jobs here and at 5 o’clock, you go home and we enjoy our peace and quiet. I don’t want people here at night having meetings.”
