Downtown Parking Garage

The Town of Los Gatos prides itself in a vibrant and historic downtown. The downtown succeeds as a destination for shopping and dining for the region, the state, and the world. This success has led to a long standing and increasing need for off street parking. The Town Council has recently reemphasized the importance of this topic.

The Town seeks information from qualified private sector firms on public – private partnership opportunities that meet the demand for parking and which may also address other Town priorities.
