Art & Wine Tour at Town Hall

Please join us on Wednesday, November 9 at 4:30 p.m. for an Art & Wine Tour at Town Hall. The Town is excited to feature artist Michael Killen. Mr. Killen is a local artist know to raise the level of discussion of important developments and issues of our time.
SRI International, a Menlo Park research company, influenced Michael to move to Silicon Valley from Massachusetts as a young man. Before he became an artist he was accomplishmented in corporate education, market research, media and publishing. 
He founded and ran Killen & Associates, Inc., for over 30 years. 
Paula Kirkeby of Smith-Andersen Editions Gallery said ‘Michael Killen is big.  He makes art for the art viewing public." Cole Wilbur, founding president and Trustee of the Packard Foundation, said, “Michael’s art is important. It pulls you in and you are changed.” 
Michael’s most recent painting is Climate, Ocean and Energy Recommendations for the New President (6 x 15 ft.) Other paintings include Sustainability and Resilience of America (both 5 x 24 ft.). 
The City of Palo Alto, County of Santa Clara, NASA, Save the Bay, Smith Andersen Editions Gallery, Sustainable Silicon Valley, US Dept. of Commerce, and USGS have displayed his painting at their events.

Presently the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research is displaying three prints of his work. In 2017, for the sixth year in row, the Silicon Valley Energy Summit at Stanford will feature Michael’s paintings. 

Please don't miss this wonderful opportunity at Town Hall.

Street Lights Survey. Last Chance!

Deadline to reply is October 31 at 4pm

The Town is currently designing new lighting circuits for the Lloyden Park and Lindenwood neighborhoods to replace the old high voltage series circuitry that currently power the lights.

The Town is seeking your feedback on which new light fixtures to install based on your opinion of the overall look of the light fixture and the quality of light it exudes. 

We have installed samples of each type of light fixture we intend to use as replacements - Post Top and Hanging Pendant types. We are seeking to maintain a similar level of illumination, and to match the current fixture style and appearance.

Please take a moment to tell us what you think, and you may also want to visit the sample fixtures in the neighborhoods.


Thank You!
