LA council considers condo project
Items on tap for Tuesday’s Los Altos City Council meeting include a design review for a new 26-unit, four-story condominium complex at 444-450 First St. and updates on the city’s emergency preparedness and the status of an emergency operations center project that involves heating, ventilation and air conditioning upgrades at the Los Altos Police Department headquarters.
Dutchints Development LLC’s First Street project features four affordable housing units. The city’s Planning Commission in November recommended that the council approve the project.
The emergency operations center contract includes assessment, evaluation and engineering design of the new center’s space and HVAC work at the police station. The project is due to go out to bid this winter and construction to wrap up by the end of the year.
Tuesday’s meeting is set for 7 p.m. at the Los Altos Youth Center, 1 N. San Antonio Road.
