The Los Gatos Planning Department sent out the information below housing plan update below. I requested and received permission to repost it here. This is relevant to everyone in town who has any concerns about the California building laws and their impact on new developments, particularly as they relate to the Builder’s Remedy. For our neighborhood, it appears to be connected to the proposed 30 new homes at the Mirassou site.
