Los Altos Forward is an open, all-volunteer group with the mission of promoting community vibrancy in downtown Los Altos.  

With the rise of Internet retail and competition from local shopping districts and malls (including the new San Antonio Center), it is more important then ever to support and feel proud of our downtown.  

Also, Los Altos Forward believes that the downtown should be more than just buildings in which to shop and dine and it should also have wonderful public spaces where citizens can come to have fun, socialize, and see their friends and neighbors.

Encourage the Los Altos community to develop a vision for the Downtown. 

Activities in 2012 include:

  • Rollout an Education Series called “Community Conversations”.  This is focused on bringing in speakers to discuss best practices in the development of wonderful, people-oriented cities. 
  • Develop sample renditions of different downtown development scenarios.
  • Collaborate on enhancing Parking Solutions
