Tucked away in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, Saratoga is a lovely residential community with a small-town feel. The City is well known for its excellent schools, fine dining, unique shops, and distinctive cultural institutions. Saratoga offers a high quality of life to its residents and a chance to escape the hustle of Silicon Valley.

Caltrans Highway 9 Project - Monday, March 30, 2015
3/26/2015  Caltrans will resume its Highway 9 safety improvement project on Monday, March 30. The final location of this project is centered between Hakone Gardens and Ambric Knolls Road in Saratoga.

Most of the work will be performed on weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. However, some weekend and night work is possible.

A concrete barrier will narrow this section from two lanes to one lane. Caltrans will utilize a 24-hour traffic signal to help motorists and bicyclists safely navigate from both directions of one-lane traffic control. The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2015.

Tree and Bench Dedication Program
8/24/2011  The City of Saratoga's Tree & Bench Dedication Program allows members of the public to purchase trees or benches for dedication purposes. Trees and benches dedicated through this program are placed on City property, usually in City parks or along Saratoga trails.

While the cost of a tree purchased through the dedication program is $500, the Saratoga City Council reduced the cost of dedicated trees by 50 percent to encourage participation in the program. Thanks to a donation from the Saratoga Monte Sereno Community Foundation, the cost of dedication trees has been further reduced to $125.

For more information, contact Joan Smith with the City of Saratoga.
