About Los Altos Hills

Incorporated in 1956, the Town of Los Altos Hills is a premier Silicon Valley residential community located adjacent to the City of Los Altos, 35 miles south of San Francisco, 5 miles south of Stanford University and 17 miles north of downtown San Jose. The advocates of incorporation were dedicated to the "preservation of the rural atmosphere of the foothills and orderly and unhurried growth."

Government & Residents Working Together
Residents are encouraged to become active in Town governance, serve on Town committees and participate in local events. Moreover, residents should avail themselves of the unique rural nature of Los Altos Hills by using the extensive pathways system, enjoying the views, visiting the preserves and meeting neighbors in the process.
