Connect Los Gatos
Connect Los Gatos
Connect Los Gatos is a program of bicycle and pedestrian projects that promote connectivity and improve the multimodal network throughout the Town. The program will expand access and improve safety for key community destination points. Connect Los Gatos is aimed at making it easier and safer for all to bike and walk in Los Gatos. In the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Update, adopted by the Town Council in September 2020, Prioritized Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvement Projects are branded as Connect Los Gatos Projects.

Measure B Bike and Pedestrian Competitive Grant Award
We are VERY EXCITED to announce that the Town has been awarded a total of $5.33 million in the Santa Clara County Measure B program to advance four Connect Los Gatos projects:
Measure B Fund Awarded
Total Project Cost
|Highway 17 Bicycle and Pedestrian Overcrossing|
|Winchester Complete Streets|
|Kennedy Sidewalk and Bike Lanes|
|Los Gatos Creek Trail Connector|
The grant was awarded by the VTA Board on June 4th, 2020. The project’s scores determine the timeline for when the individual projects will receive Measure B funds.
The Los Gatos Creek Trail Connector, although not assigned a fund amount, is the next project to be funded. This will likely occur if other projects fall through or additional revenue is made available.
The only project that did not make the fiscally constrained list was the Highway 9/Massol Intersection Safety Improvement project. The Town will complete the construction this summer using the local funds already included in the Budget.
The awarded grants are competitive, and an excellent funding opportunity for the Connect Los Gatos Projects. The Town is thrilled to present these grant awards.
Connect Los Gatos Public Engagement Plan
The Connect Los Gatos Public Outreach Engagement Plan was approved by the Town Council at its March 3, 2020 meeting. The framework defines a comprehensive approach to engaging a broad segment of the public with proposed project awareness, input, feedback, and opportunities for engaged participation.
