Commissions Discuss CenterA handful of Los Altos city commissions met last week for one specific purpose – to create a preliminary wish list of programming for a new community center.

Members of the city’s Senior, Parks and Recreation, Youth and Public Arts commissions met Feb. 26 for more than two hours at Hillview Community Center, part of the ongoing 10-month effort to update plans to replace Hillview with a new community facility as outlined in the 2009 Civic Center Master Plan. Participants split into groups and prioritized programming needs for the various constituencies the new facility would serve, such as seniors, teens and children.

Several commission members suggested the need for large indoor and outdoor spaces for social activities, with dinners, middle-school dances, public art and fitness classes as priorities.  If you’d like to participate in the discussion, the city is slated to host user-group-focused meetings March 15 and 20. Both meetings are open to the public.
