The city of Mountain View is experiencing an uptick in RVs parked along main roads, such as Shoreline Boulevard, above. Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said she “definitely noticed” more long-term parkers and noted that officers had received complaints from cyclists whose lanes were blocked by RVs.

Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors President Joe Simitian has a big dream: developing long-term, systemic solutions to end homelessness in the county.

He knows that realistically, results are going to come slowly, with collaboration, but his fellow supervisors and other community leaders are making his vision a reality, one project at a time.

Led by Los Altos Hills Mayor John Radford’s springer spaniel, Eddie, participants of the town’s 2017 4th of July Parade march down Fremont Road. This year’s parade begins at 10 a.m. Wednesday at town hall, 26379 W. Fremont Road.

From pancakes to parades, there are several ways for local residents to celebrate the Fourth of the July.

A list of scheduled events follows.

Hillview Community Center planners to host open house to solicit feedback

The city of Los Altos has scheduled an open house next week to reveal the newest design for rebuilding Hillview Community Center.

The event is slated 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday (July 10) at the Los Altos Youth Center, 1 N. San Antonio Road. City staff and members of the project team will be on hand to field questions and address any concerns about the design.

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.

Woman arrested for stealing mail

What was trash to one woman could prove to be treasure to several other people.

Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office deputies responding to a “suspicious activity” call in unincorporated Los Altos found multiple garbage bags filled with mail on the side of the road, according to Sheriff’s Office representatives.

Residents air their concerns about Miramonte Avenue path project

While several agendized items appeared before the Los Altos City Council last week, the issue that drove the most public participation won’t appear on the agenda until next week.

Miramonte Avenue corridor residents turned out for the June 26 meeting in droves to discuss their continued frustration about a planned path project, leaving standing room only for the first quarter of the council’s forum.
