Should we have a Downtown Master Plan?
Please join us Wednesday, August 22 to hear from experts on city master planning and plans, and to share your thoughts about planning ahead for Los Altos.
Here is what a few people have said about plans:
"You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there." – Yogi berra
" Plans are nothing; planning is everything." – Dwight D. Eisenhower
"Life if what happens while you are making other plans." – John Lennon
“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possilibities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” – Gloria Steinem
“If you don’t have a plan for yourself, you’ll be part of someone else’s” – American Proverb
“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.” – Thomas Edison
