Portola Valley to consider location of new batting cage

The Little League baseball field at Westridge Drive and Alpine Road in Portola Valley is scheduled for extensive renovation, and the Town Council on Wednesday, Jan. 12, will consider replacing the batting cage at its current non-conforming location: inside the setback of Los Trancos Creek.

The batting cage and two storage containers at Ford Field at 3399 Alpine Road happen to intrude on the setback of the creek, which runs behind the field. A new batting cage would have a lower profile, and the creek setback will gain 8 feet of open space by moving the storage containers, according to a staff report.

The council meets at 7:30 p.m. in the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road.
