Measure C grants residents stewardship
On Oct. 9, the Los Altos City Council passed a city ordinance (to temporarily preserve parks and open space) that fails to preserve the Hillview soccer and baseball fields, children’s park, apricot orchards, Neutra House, Bus Barn Theater, History House, and more. The ordinance also leaves public and institutional land, including downtown’s parking plazas, at risk of disposition without resident input.
I am concerned that our historical apricot orchards could be compromised or removed as part of future Hillview/Civic Center development. This must be prevented at all costs. Why haven’t the historical orchard plaques been installed? This “oversight” makes me wonder.
