Declining state of Town & Country Village

Original post made by Andrew, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 8, 2006

It is a real shame that Palo Alto's Town & Country Village continues to look more like a neglected and deteriorating investment property than a shining representation and well-located multi-resource site for the Palo Alto community? I would like to ask how our fellow community representatives and city planners are doing or proposing to to revitalize this location? I'd be interested in learning whether there are proposals for a simple face-lift or a Santana Row-type re-vamp. Thanks. -a concerned longtime Palo Altan

What's happening with a new site for the Cookbook Restaurant?

Great news! I was informed by one of our very helpful city planners that over the next six months, the Town & Country shopping center will receive some much needed improvements that will dramatically improve the pedestrian and shopping experience at the site. The new owners of Town & Country are Ellis Partners (San Francisco), and they are committed to the success of the center and are planning to invest time and money for improvements that include new landscaping, building refurbishment, pedestrian amenities, an improved parking lot layout (including parking lot trees), signage, and lighting. They want to keep the eclectic charm of the center, but bring it up to date. Sounds like our city representatives and planners are making good progress on this community issue!

So as an ex-Palo Altan, I looked on the web to see what had happened to the Town & Country shopping center.

They don't seem to have a web site. Did they finally get up to speed? What shops are there? Is there a web site somewhere? Thanks.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
