Is Affordable Housing Possible In Los Altos?


Nov 2017


It’s fairly well known that housing is not affordable in Los Altos, and that has consequences.

Long commutes for school teachers, city staff, restaurant workers, merchants and the list goes on and on for those who are part of an important work ecosystem. When jobs don’t get filled or turnover is high, it impacts everyone’s quality of life. What to do?

A panel on the “Invisible Housing Crisis” sponsored by the Women’s Caucus of Los Altos and co-sponsored by GreenTown Los Altos and other groups discussed the issue Nov. 15.

There are a lot of things that can be done, and Los Altos Mayor Mary Prochnow says we need to do more than we are doing right now.

If you’re interested in the topic, here’s a link to the full meeting and some challenging words from Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian.
