Just a couple more days to do this and it only takes about two minutes - if you haven't provided your feedback yet, the town wants to hear from you!  What type of architectural style would be most appropriate in the "North 40"?  If you're new here, this is the last, large open space in Los Gatos.  It is nearly 40 acres and is bounded by Los Gatos Boulevard, Lark Avenue, Highway 17 and Highway 85.  Please be heard - how should look when it's developed over the next few years?

If you're a resident of Los Gatos, please take a few moments to answer the 33 question survey on your preferences for the North 40.  The survey closes in early July, so don't wait!

Los Gatos Town Council Votes to Spend $3.1 Million - Money Came from Vasona Land Sale Last Year

The Los Gatos Town Council has decided to spend some of the proceeds from the Vasona land sale last year to acquire 2.7 acres of land along University Avenue, where a youth sports complex will be built, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

The Merc says that the council plans to hold hearings to get town input on how to use the land.  Soccer fields (non regulation sized) are planned.  No doubt the skatepark issue will resurface.

Mary's personal note: It always surprises me when a large purchase like this (or the decision to build a new library) comes without consultation of the Los Gatos residents/voters. Of course, our elected officials are supposed to make decisions on many things for us.  I am not sure that I'm too comfortable with a multi-million dollar decision being made without input, though, or when input is only sought after the fact for how to use something purchased - not whether to make the purchase.  Many will certainly be happy about the land, and it's agreed that we need more soccer fields.
