Mayor John Radford, Councilman Roger Spreen and town staff members worked with architect Peter Duxbury to create the concept, now referred to as “Plan A,” for the expansion of town hall, above.
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.”
