There's a new expanse of sophisticated Portola Valley real estate to explore, and you can investigate it from your desk, said Stacie Nerdahl, the town's point-person for the town's new Web site.
The new site (www.portolavalley.net) is notable for allowing a visitor to filter content according to a particular interest, such as tracking town government business or local environmental events.
It cost the town about $70,000, according to Town Manager Angela Howard, and went online Thursday.
Users can subscribe to news regarding every deliberative body, Ms. Nerdahl said. Subscribers can track classes, events, and actions of each of the 14 or so volunteer committees, including conservation, traffic, trails, and nature and science.
Recreation-field links include related policies and user applications. The new sustainability section, overseen by Sustainability and Resource Coordinator Brandi de Garmeaux, documents efforts to "live and work sustainably" by both government and residents.
