Annexation Number 10

Annexation Number 10 - The Completion of the Town of Atherton traces the events leading up to, during and after the 1961 annexation of the "Outer Walsh Road" area to the Town of Atherton. In its 247 pages the book examines in detail the forces that confronted and, in some cases threatened, the 81-acre "island in time."

The book includes over 100 reproductions of civic documents, 60 plus newspaper clippings and dozens of maps, photographs and letters. For the local resident and historian this is an interesting analysis of the events that have made Walsh Road the protected environment that it is today. To purchase a copy of the book you can send a check for $45.00 to: Skyline Press, P.O. Box 620954, Woodside, CA 94062. Include your ship to address and a phone number.

Motorized Skateboards

The Town recently received complaints of motorized skateboards traveling in town.

An motorized or electric skateboard is typically a modified skateboard propelled by an electric or gas engine, the thrust of which is usually controlled with an radio frequency remote. As with a regular skateboard, it is steered by the rider shifting his or her weight. It was originally designed for local transport, but with the advent of more serious "Off Road" models is emerging as a new thrill sport. The Off Road style boards are able to traverse grass, gravel, dirt and hard sand and are often seen at low tide on the beach.

The complaints received by the Town include traveling down the center of roadways, riding in the opposite direction of traffic, riders not wearing helmets, unsafe movements, and weaving in and out of traffic.

Under California Vehicle Code section 21968 (Motorized Skateboard Prohibited), no motorized skateboard may be propelled on any sidewalk, roadway, or any other part of a highway or on any bikeway, bicycle path or trail, equestrian trail, or hiking or recreational trail. This means that a motorized skateboard may not legally be operated on the sidewalk, street, or bike lane. A violation of this section is an infraction punishable by a fine of at least $197.00.

If you have any questions, please contact the Atherton Police Department at 650-688-6500.
