What type of environment would you like to see in the Downtown area in the future?

The City of Los Altos Downtown Vision Plan project is a city-led effort to collaborate with the Los Altos community to determine a vision for the future of the Downtown. This questionnaire focuses on the Downtown Los Altos triangle, bounded by San Antonio Road, Foothill Expressway, and West Edith Avenue, also known as the Vision Plan area/Downtown area. 

The input collected from this questionnaire will be utilized in conjunction with information gathered at other community events and the market/economic analysis to help shape Vision Scenario Alternatives. Once developed, the Vision Scenario Alternatives will be vetted by the community and City Council through further outreach.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire, we look forward to receiving your feedback by July 7th, 2017.
