Photo credit: Wikipedia

The Town of Los Gatos (approx. 30,000 residents) is located about 60 miles south of San Francisco, where the Santa Clara Valley meets the lower slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Although Los Gatos is closely tied to Silicon Valley (it is home to Netflix, with about 900 employees) and its fast-paced economy, the town retains a mix of residential, commercial and light industrial uses. Over 3,000 businesses serve both residents and visitors who are attracted to its restaurants, hotels and variety of shops in a pedestrian-oriented downtown setting. The town is an inclusive community with a full mix of ages, family sizes and incomes. Los Gatos has many parks and greenbelt areas, as well as a vibrant downtown, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the model of what many communities strive to achieve in a downtown.
