Adding ‘mystery lane’ would solve I-280 jams

Regarding the Town Crier article “I-280 bottleneck proves both dangerous and frustrating” (March 8):

Solution: Fix Interstate 280 by adding the “mystery lane” that disappears at Magdalena Avenue, then reappears a few hundred meters south (as a high-occupancy vehicle commuter lane). It is crazy to go from four lanes to three lanes and back to four lanes – all within approximately 700 meters – on an interstate highway! Who designed this major flaw into our city?

Common Core contributes to quality education

In these uncertain political times, Californians need to stand by the gains we’ve made for public education over the past several years.

Despite their repeated threats, the new federal administration will have little power to repeal Common Core, and we are more committed than ever to the standards we have worked so tirelessly to implement statewide.

Community center needs careful planning

We think Los Altos is a phenomenal small town. We are excited to live, work and raise our families here. This is why we recommend that the Los Altos City Council get the priorities, and the execution of those priorities, right when it comes to the future of our community centers.

Following best practices, including looking at how other similar communities have designed and built their community centers, should be integral. Engaging an urban planner before an architect makes more sense than jumping into building design. Planning Grant Park, alongside Hillview, ensures that all residents will have access to social and recreational resources in Los Altos.
