Pervasive potholes on Diamond Court in Los Altos require maintenance, but the street is privately owned and the owner’s whereabouts are unknown. The city is working with residents of the street to assume ownership and split the estimated $200,000 cost of repaving.
Robert Diamond’s whereabouts may be unknown, but his namesake street, Diamond Court, lives on, posing a crater of a problem for residents who drive on its pothole-ridden surface.
The Diamond-in-the-rough conditions may change soon, however, after the Los Altos City Council voted last week to initiate the process of making the private road a city-owned street.
