Change in Almond Grove Phase II Project Bid Date

PPW Engineering has received feedback from the contracting community that extra time is needed to provide a bid for the Almond Grove Phase II project, due to the high number of projects that are currently bidding in the Bay Area.  Only a limited number of contractors have purchased the project plans to date.  To encourage more contractors to purchase plans and bid on the project, PPW will move the bid date from Wednesday March 22, 2017 to Wednesday, April 5, 2017, thereby allowing contractors more time to prepare a bid. 
Please contact Lisa Petersen, Town Engineer, for any questions at (408) 399-5773 or

Update posted 1/24/17 - 
For Residents on Tait, Bayview, Glen Ridge, Almendra, Wilder, Bean, Massol, and Nicholson:

The Town of Los Gatos is planning a street reconstruction project in the Almond Grove District for the above streets, with the first phase starting this summer and completion of all streets expected by the end of 2019.  The project consists of reconstructing the concrete streets, curbs and gutters, driveway approaches, and some sidewalk replacements.
If you are contemplating any work on your house that requires an upgrade to the utilities in the street, ie: larger water service, gas service or sewer lateral upgrade, we request that this work be performed prior to the start of the project.  The Town will provide a waiver for the Encroachment Permit fee, and permanent pavement will not be required in the street area (temporary asphalt will be acceptable).  This will be a significant cost benefit to the homeowner.  Please complete this work by June 1, 2017.
If you have any questions, please contact Admas Zewdie at (408) 827-3553, Monday thru Wednesday, 8:30 am to 5 pm, or email him at or contact Suyesh Shrestha at (408) 395-1437 or at

Update posted 1/10/17 - Phase II of the Almond Grove Reconstruction Project is currently under design. Within the design, the Town is working towards building an attractive urban forest in the Almond Grove Phase II area. This will include adding 121 new trees in locations where currently no trees exist. To facilitate this, the Town will create small planter strips to include new trees in areas that currently do not have planter strips. Town staff has distributed notices in late December, 2016 to residences that have been identified to receive these new trees in the planter strips. Residents who have any questions or concerns regarding this work are requested to contact Suyesh Shrestha, Engineering Technician, at (408) 395-1437 or or Admas Zewdie, Project Manager, at (408)827-3553 or
