Written by lalahpolitico
Here is the Los Altos City Council agenda packet. Anyone from the public can pull any of the items 1 -8 out of the consent calendar.  If you do,  your item will be place after item 12.  Any one who objects to the zoning language changes or to the subdivision of 925 Covington into 3 parcels, this is your last chance to say so.
The items on the Los Altos City Council agenda that are likely to get the most public comment are the Safeway development plan (item 10) and the Downtown Questionnaire (item 12). If attending, plan for a long meeting.
