Let’s focus on Los Altos’ positives

In response to the notion that Los Altos is a sleepy downtown village lacking vibrancy (“How to make Los Altos a destination,” Nov. 1), this is what we do have: the Festival of Lights Parade, the Kiwanis Pet Parade, the Los Altos High School homecoming parade, the Rotary Club’s Fine Art in the Park, the Arts & Wine Festival, the Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween window painting, Halloween candy hand-outs at shops, the Fall Festival, the Corvette car show, First Fridays and summer music in Shoup Park and at Hillview Community Center.

Within walking distance, we have a post office, a public library, a charming theater, a history museum, a variety of restaurants, two wine-tasting rooms, a drugstore, two grocery markets, gift shops, a florist, a stationery shop, a game shop for the kids and more.

End of LACI project a ‘missed opportunity’

I’m saddened to read the Town Crier article about the First Street office-park project by Los Altos Community Investments being halted (“First Street office-park project abruptly halted – reaction mixed,” Oct. 18).

Los Altos: The place development goes to die

I was incredibly disappointed to learn that Los Altos Community Investments has decided not to go forward with the First Street Green development. This project would have been transformative for downtown Los Altos, and I’m equally frustrated and appalled by how hard Los Altos made it for LACI to gift us a park.

Los Altos has earned itself a reputation as the place development goes to die.
