PV Connect is
 a multi-platform solution providing Portola Valley residents, businesses, and visitors access to Town services and information, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have you ever wanted to quickly report an issue – like a pothole or downed tree – but didn’t know the number or email to use? That’s why we created PV Connect, a simple, convenient tool that puts Town Hall at your fingertips. 

The best way to use PV Connect is to download the app onto your smartphone, following the instructions below. Don't have a smartphone? You can also report an issue or request a service on your desktop. Select a topic below!

You no longer have to hunt for the right number (although you are still welcome to call us!). You now have one central tool to immediately communicate issues that need attention or access information pertinent to you.

Start using PV Connect to request a service right now in the frame below! Or read on to find out how to get PV Connect on your smartphone.


 Once you download the PV Connect app, you will find all kinds of issues that folks commonly call us about:

  • Animal Issues    
  • Parking Issues    
  • Public Trees    
  • Road Issues
  • Trail Issues
  • Illegal Dumping

     You can also access popular online services including:

  • Class Registration
  • Emergency Preparedness Info
  • E-Notice
  • SMC Alert Sign Up    
  • Facility Reservation Info
  • Council Meeting Agendas
  • Town Calendar
  • Special Events

  • You can provide additional details as you wish, and even attach a photo.  PV Connect will automatically know the issue location if you have enabled your device’s GPS and location services.  

    Your request will be routed to the Portola Valley team member(s) responsible for addressing your concern. You can share your concern with others (called “followers”), and you all can track the status and resolution of the request right from your phone!

    Local government functions best when everyone participates in identifying and solving issues. With PV Connect, businesses, residents and visitors alike can work together for an even better Town!
