Los Altos to Develop Plazas 1, 2 & 3 – Now is your chance to speak up

by Joe Eyre

The City of Los Altos is planning to develop a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the development of the downtown plazas 1, 2, and 3 (by the Los Altos Grill and Walgreens).

The purpose of the RFP is to solicit bids from developers on how they would develop the land with underground parking, retail, office, and/or residential space.

You NOW have the opportunity to provide input to the City on what the RFP should specify for this very important downtown project.   You can do this in one or more of the following four ways before the City Council’s public Study Session about the Opportunity Study RFP on September 27th at 5:30pm:

1.  By Friday September 16th, express your thoughts on the RFP Suggestion Box blog. This blog is open to the public and will be shared with the City Council and staff prior to the September 27th Council study session.  To do this:

  1. Go to

  2. Click on “Plaza Development RFP Suggestion Box”

  3. Read the welcome note and instructions, then scroll down past the plaza map to find comment topic categories

  4. Click “Leave a comment” in whatever category you feel your comment fits best, or leave a comment in “General Comments”

  5. You do not need to log in or register – you can leave a comment as a guest by clicking “Guest”

2.  Provide written comments to City staff by September 19th, that will be incorporated into the materials for the September 27th study session (they need time to prepare the public hearing agenda report). Send your thoughts to:

Lee Price, City Clerk, City of Los Altos One North San Antonio Road, Los Altos, CA 94022 Or, email Lee Price at

3. Email your City Councilmembers directly by sending your thoughts to You can do this at any time before September 27th, so they have your feedback before the Opportunity Study RFP Study Session
