Almond Grove Street Reconstruction Phase II - Plans & Specifications

Please note that the Plans and Specifications shown below are for information only and should not be used for bidding purposes.

Update posted 1/24/17 - 
For Residents on Tait, Bayview, Glen Ridge, Almendra, Wilder, Bean, Massol, and Nicholson:

The Town of Los Gatos is planning a street reconstruction project in the Almond Grove District for the above streets, with the first phase starting this summer and completion of all streets expected by the end of 2019.  The project consists of reconstructing the concrete streets, curbs and gutters, driveway approaches, and some sidewalk replacements.
If you are contemplating any work on your house that requires an upgrade to the utilities in the street, ie: larger water service, gas service or sewer lateral upgrade, we request that this work be performed prior to the start of the project.  The Town will provide a waiver for the Encroachment Permit fee, and permanent pavement will not be required in the street area (temporary asphalt will be acceptable).  This will be a significant cost benefit to the homeowner.  Please complete this work by June 1, 2017.
If you have any questions, please contact Admas Zewdie at (408) 827-3553, Monday thru Wednesday, 8:30 am to 5 pm, or email him at or contact Suyesh Shrestha at (408) 395-1437 or at

Update posted 1/10/17 - Phase II of the Almond Grove Reconstruction Project is currently under design. Within the design, the Town is working towards building an attractive urban forest in the Almond Grove Phase II area. This will include adding 121 new trees in locations where currently no trees exist. To facilitate this, the Town will create small planter strips to include new trees in areas that currently do not have planter strips. Town staff has distributed notices in late December, 2016 to residences that have been identified to receive these new trees in the planter strips. Residents who have any questions or concerns regarding this work are requested to contact Suyesh Shrestha, Engineering Technician, at (408) 395-1437 or or Admas Zewdie, Project Manager, at (408)827-3553 or

Update Posted 12/21/16 - PPW staff provided an update to Council on the Almond Grove Phase II project at the Town Council meeting on December 20, 2016.  The report to Council and PowerPoint presentation provided to Council have been provided at the bottom of this page.

Update Posted 12/14/16- The PowerPoint presentations and design exhibits presented by Wilsey Ham at the community design meetings on December 5th, 8th and 12th are now available for viewing at the bottom of the Almond Grove Phase II webpage.  Residents should note that design changes requested at the meetings will not yet be reflected in the exhibits shown on the website.  Additionally, staff would like to remind residents, as noted in the meetings, the Town will be moving forward with placing street trees in areas within the Almond Grove Phase II limits that currently do not have planter strips.  Residents who do not want planter strips added in front of their residence should contact the Town Engineer at the number listed below.

Based on input from the residents at the design meetings, all streets (including streets with alley access) will be constructed one half at a time, similar to Broadway and Bachman, to minimize impacts to resident access and parking.  For those who attended the meetings and requested to be signed up on the Almond Grove Phase II “Notify Me” list, these signups have occurred and residents will need to accept the e-mail signup notification they received to activate the “Notify Me” system.

Town staff will present an update on the Almond Grove Phase II project to the Town Council on December 20, 2016.  The meeting will start at 7:00 pm.  Please check the Town website on Friday if you would like to know the order of the meeting agenda items.  Please contact the Town Engineer, Lisa Petersen, for any questions, concerns or to provide additional input at (408) 399-5773 or
Update posted 11/29/16 - PPW staff, along with the project design consultant for the Almond Grove Phase II project, will hold three community meetings to discuss the project design for individual streets and respond to questions from residents within the Almond Grove Phase II project area.  Items to be discussed will include how the new improvements will match with resident’s properties, roadway layout, sequencing of street replacements, and potential utility upgrades. The time and location for the meetings is shown below. Residents with questions regarding the meetings should contact the Project Manager, Admas Zewdie at (408) 827-3553 or at (Monday through Wednesday) or the Town Engineer, Lisa Petersen, at (408) 399-5773 or
