Community Notebook: Palo Alto to hold 'town hall' neighborhood meetings

Officials to discuss matters of residents' concern on Dec. 7 and 14

Building on its commitment for more transparency and community dialogue, the City of Palo Alto will convene two neighborhood "town hall" meetings in December; the first is on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

At the meetings, staff and members of the City Council will discuss neighborhood concerns.

The Dec. 7 town hall will take place 7-9 p.m. at Escondido Elementary School, 890 Escondido Road, in the College Terrace neighborhood. The second meeting will take place Wednesday, Dec. 14, 7-9 p.m. at Barron Park Elementary School, 800 Barron Ave., in the Barron Park neighborhood.

Community members can suggest topics for discussion by sending an email to info@cityofpaloalto.org.

The town hall initiative launched in November 2015 to better gauge concerns and to inform residents who might not get to council meetings. Past meeting topics have included single-story overlay zoning, flooding, neighborhood grocery stores, traffic and parking.

Previous meetings have included the Crescent Park, Duveneck/St. Francis and Triple El/Leland Manor neighborhoods and Adobe Meadow, Greenmeadow, Monroe Park, Charleston Gardens, Charleston Meadows, The Greenhouse and Fairmeadow.
