Skateboarding, affordable housing on Portola Valley agenda

A study session on affordable housing and a proposal to install a skateboarding ramp at Town Center are two key topics on the agenda for the Portola Valley Town Council meeting on Wednesday, Nov 13, in the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. with a 90-minute joint study session with the Planning Commission to develop an "open and participatory" public process for updating the housing chapter of the town's general plan.

The session will include work-plan and schedule reviews, and discussion of priorities identified in the May 2013 report from the Ad Hoc Affordable Housing Committee.

Also on the agenda is a proposal from the Parks & Recreation Committee to install a skateboarding ramp on the multi-use "sport court" next to the tennis courts for a 12-month trial.

The sport court has in its favor a firm, flat surface and a central location, committee Chair Jon Myers said in a letter. The other locations under consideration are along Alpine Road: near the Rossotti (soccer) Field, the Ford (baseball) Field, and Corte Madera Middle School.
