PAN News

PAN is a networking organization where residents across neighborhoods share concerns. When we muster significant interest in a community concern, PAN amplifies the voices of residents at City Hall. As residents we don’t always agree on every little thing, and therefore seek to be sensitive to those among us who might not get behind an action that a PAN majority support.  PAN’s goal looks at big broad brushstroke issues affecting multiple or all neighborhoods  in Palo Alto.

What’s Happening


While the pandemic is not over, Palo Alto’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) feels that systems, treatment capabilities, and public awareness are all in place to support the deactivation of its Emergency Services Volunteers (ESVs).  Thank you to the wonderful Volunteers who helped during the worst of this crisis and please keep building those neighbor to neighbor connections.

OES would like to emphasize that it is important for all of us to continue to shelter in place as much as possible and to follow the physical distancing, hand washing and mask wearing orders of Santa Clara County’s Public Health Officer to decrease the spread of the virus in our community.

Although the activation of ESVs is over, the city encourages every block to have a Block Preparedness Coordinator (or two).
