Drugs collected

According to the Milpitas Police Department, residents discarded 231.6 pounds of unwanted/expired prescription and over the county drugs during the Drug Take Back Event on April 28.

Hotel gets corner lot

Expect the empty lot at the corner of Alder Drive and Barber Lane to soon be home to a five-story, 67-foot tall, Westin-owned Element Hotel with 194 guest rooms located in the southern corner of the site. At the April 25 Milpitas Planning Commission meeting, commissioners unanimously approved the single hotel application, according to Michael Fossati senior planner for the city. If all goes well with the first hotel, the developers—Lodging Dynamics Development—hope to add a second hotel on the same property. The proposed Aloft Hotel would be 155 rooms and five-stories, but would require a separate application process. For now, the commission said yes to Element Hotel. Fossati said the developers are expected to break ground within six months.
