LOS ALTOS SPEAKS UP -
I believe the scope of this project is outrageous and will forever change the character of the town most people love and moved to Los Altos to enjoy.

A smaller investment to improve on existing facilities will be better money spent. I object to increased taxes for unnecessary construction.
Paul A | North Los Altos
The size and amount of money to be spent on this "community center" is not "scaled-back" as the City states in their education materials. What other cities have spent this much on a community center? Why does Los Altos think we need one this large? This doesn't even include the Library which I feel is important to have and should be updated.
Ruseli O | Country Club Area
Have lived in Los Altos for 32 years. We are retired & on a fixed income. Additional property taxes would put a real burden on us. We cannot be the only ones in Los Altos with this problem. We use the community center every week but $87 million dollars is ridiculous!
M P | North Los Altos
This plan does not address all the needs and appears to over-estimate what is really needed. Further, there is clearly conflation of wants with needs, which will not offer the residents a solution worthy of the expense
Debra M | Downtown Los Altos.
Stop adding tax after tax, bond after bond, for things you have little
to show for after you load up all the money.
Even for a affluent community this is unjustified
Kianian S | Los Altos
The town possess an incredible asset in the land and development potential of this property. I see nothing in the information released by the town to date that demonstrates this valuable land will be used to its full potential for the good of the entire community. The current plan seems forced and poorly conceived.
David J | North Los Altos
A poor plan ignoring the needs of the city ---pushed by the loudest stakeholders.
An expensive waste of green space.
This project is too expensive for what is to be built.
POOLS AND THE CALIFORNIA DROUGHT
Did anyone consider the drought?
This plan is WAY TO EXPENSIVE for the needs of this community. And I don't want to pay for a pool complex. No need to build pools and reshuffle existing sports fields.
Panchita Ave | Los Altos
The size of the pool complex is way beyond the needs of the community. Why can't a single pool the size of Eagle Park be built instead? That way more green space would be preserved.
Howard B | North Los Altos
Why are we even talking about including a pool in this expensive facility? In this drought, a pool is the last thing we need. Use the one at the high school.
William H | South Los Altos
Voters will not approve the project, particularly the large pool complex that will be used primarily by swim club members and who may be non-residents. Thereby it is a "community" pool in name only.
