October 10th Neighborhood Meeting Agenda:

In order to facilitate solution-based discussion and open dialogue, we plan to assemble small groups around the following topics:

1) Transportation demand management
2) Parking
3) Trees
4) Deliveries/buses
5) Events

We will be seeking feedback on our current operations and on how neighbors would like to see these items handled in the future including in the context of our proposal.

Neighborhood Update:

On Monday, September 18 a large branch fell from the Oak tree in front of Lockey House. Castilleja had an arborist examine the tree along with a representative from the City of Palo Alto's Urban Forestry department. The recommendation from the City was to trim the tree significantly in order to ensure the safety of the students and structures on campus. Below is the statement provided by Walter Passmore from the Urban Forestry department:

"The City of Palo Alto has authorized structural pruning to be completed on Oaktree #102 as described on development plans.  Pruning is approved because of a large limb failure on September 18, 2017.  Pruning will reduce the risk of another failure by reducing end weights on selected branches as well as reducing or eliminating branches associated with weak or broken wood.  Work will be conducted under the supervision of the project arborist for Castilleja School.  The tree will be retained and its condition updated in future reports." 

On Tuesday, October 3rd, Castilleja will perform the recommended tree work including limb trimming and pruning based on the City of Palo Alto's assessment.
