The Canyons on Los Altos will be within the Vistas Planned Development at 2255 Los Altos Parkway. The site was zoned for multi-family development in July 2018.

The Planning Commission approved the project November 1, 2018, leading the way for City Council to pass it 4-1 at its December 10 meeting. The dissenting vote was Ward 2 Councilman Ed Lawson, who has been against it since the beginning.

The council approval comes with a requirement that four pedestrian flashers be added to the roundabout at Los Altos and Vista Heights.

At the same meeting, the council unanimously approved a motion to increase sewer and storm drain user rates. A sewer connection fee increase of 30% goes into effect January 1, 2019.
