Los Altos Hills has a ban on commercial zones, and effectively multi-family as well. Residential regulations stipulate a minimum lot size of one acre. Los Altos Hills real estate maintains a rural feel, similar to the likes of San Mateo County and Silicon Valley peripheral neighbors Portola Valley and Woodside, and in many cases with parcels within striking distance of downtown Los Altos. Many feel that the Hills provide the perfect rural and urban/suburban mix.
LAH is served by both the Palo Alto Unified School District (serving the northern part of the town) and the Los Altos School District (serving the southern part of the town).
