Based on the work of the North 40 Advisory Committee (N40 AC), Planning Commission, and Town Council, the adopted North 40 Specific Plan contains a Vision and Guiding Principles that provide overarching guidance for development of the North 40 Specific Plan area, as follows:
The North 40 reflects the special nature of our hometown. It celebrates our history, agricultural heritage, hillside views, and small town character. The North 40 is seamlessly woven into the fabric of our community, complementing other Los Gatos residential and business neighborhoods. It is respectful of precious community resources and offers unique attributes that enrich the quality of life of all of our residents.
Guiding Principles to Achieve this Vision
• The North 40 will look and feel like Los Gatos.
• The North 40 will embrace hillside views, trees, and open space.
• The North 40 will address the Town’s residential and/or commercial unmet needs.
• The North 40 will minimize or mitigate impacts on town infrastructure, schools, and other community services.
