Neighborhood Meeting Notice - Affordable Housing

Post Date:03/21/2013 11:00 AM

Portola Valley’s Town Council and the Ad-Hoc Committee on Affordable Housing are seeking community input on the subject of affordable housing. Residents are encouraged to make comments, offer input and voice concerns at one or more of the neighborhood meetings to be held around town as noted below.

Residents are also encouraged to offer written input (name and contact information is optional) on comment cards that will be provided and collected at each meeting.  These comment cards are also available in Town Hall at the Town Center from March 21st until April 11th and can be downloaded here. Residents are welcome to come by and deposit cards into the designated box during Town Hall hours (Monday – Friday from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm and 3:00 – 5:00 pm).

The dates and locations of the meetings are as follows:


  • Tuesday, March 26, 7:30 – 9:00 PM @ Woodside Priory, Father Christopher’s Room
  • Thursday, March 28, 7:30 – 9:00 PM @ Corte Madera School, Annex Building
  • Wednesday, April 3, 10:00 – 11:30 AM @ Valley Presbyterian Church, Lane Family Hall
  • Monday, April 8, 7:30 – 9:00 PM @ Alpine Hills Swim & Tennis Club, The Alpine Room


In an effort to reach a broad audience of residents, members of the Ad-Hoc Committee on Affordable Housing will also host meetings in homes on different dates and times in various neighborhoods throughout Portola Valley. All meetings will cover the same topic and will be facilitated in the same manner. If you are interested in attending a home-based meeting rather than one of the meetings above, please contact the Town for information as noted below. As home-based meetings are scheduled, additional notices will be provided on the PV Forum and Town's website.

The purpose of these meetings is not to discuss in detail the Town’s plans for affordable housing, but to collect commentary on the community’s expectations and values. This community input will help identify and prioritize the Town’s efforts to meet state mandates on affordable housing.   

*You are encouraged to forward this message to Portola Valley neighbors and email forums.* 

For more information about the meetings and community commentary, please contact Interim Planning Department Manager Steve Padovan by telephone at 650-851-1700 x212 or by email at
