The town of Portola Valley is working with Stanford University to build housing on the Stanford Wedge property, a 75-acre site along Alpine Road between Westridge and Golden Oak drives, and two community meetings to discuss the plan have been scheduled.

The would include 29 units that are each about 2,200 square feet, along with three below-market-rate parcels on a 6-acre segment of the property, according to Stanford Associate Director of Real Estate Jean Snider.

Stanford is hosting the community meetings, set for Thursday, May 9, from 6 to 8 p.m.; and Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to noon. They will take place in the town's Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road.
