The First 50 Years

Thursday, October 10, 2019

A History Committee Presentation - The first half-century of the major “happenings” in our city. Topics range from the motivations that triggered the initial formation of the town, and the subsequent political skirmishes that shaped the town’s evolution up to the turn of the millennium. Quarries, Preservation of Open Space, and Pathways, were just the earliest and biggest factors that played a role - in the face of steeply increasing property values and the pressure by developers to maximize their potential. All of this in the context of what started as a primarily “Orchard Community” reshaping itself into residences for the high-flyers of Silicon Valley.
