Traffic and Parking around Schools - Online Survey

The Town of Los Gatos is proud to announce the release of a new online survey focused around Safe Routes to School. 

This past spring the Town initiated a comprehensive analysis of travel patterns to school.  The study includes development of new Suggested Walk & Roll Maps to help identify those streets where improvements should be considered to ensure a safe and efficient commute to school.  Residents can find on the survey the Walk & Roll Maps and Concept Improvement Plans for suggested street improvements in town.

The online survey will be available through the end of the school year.
Links to the survey are also available on the Town's Safe Routes to School Page.  This project is being sponsored by the Town of Los Gatos, Los Gatos Union School District, Los Gatos-Monte Sereno High School District, and Hillbrook School.

North 40 Phase 1-Story Pole Update

The story poles for the Phase 1 development proposal for the North 40 Specific Plan Area have been installed and will remain in place through July 2, 2016 pursuant to the story pole modification granted by the Town Council in February 2016.

The purpose of story poles is to inform the public that a planning application is pending for the property and that the public is welcome to submit comments on the proposal to the Town. The North 40 story poles were certified as to the accuracy of their location and height on May 4, 2016. 

As required by the February modification, all poles will remain in place for 60 days from the certification and will come down after July 2, 2016. The approved story pole modification plan and action minutes from the February 16, 2016 Town Council meeting are available on the Town Website.

The Town encourages the community to view the story poles from the public right-of-way on Lark Avenue and Los Gatos Boulevard because the property is private with homes and businesses still in place.

To submit questions about the North 40 Phase 1-Story Poles, please email  To submit comments about the North 40 Phase I-Story Poles, please email or call the  Community Development Department at 408-354-6802.
