Steve Jobs' Calif. home gets historic designation
LOS ALTOS, Calif. (AP) - October 29, 2013 (WPVI) -- The Silicon Valley home where Apple co-founder Steve Jobs grew up and built some of his first computers is now on the city's list of historic properties.
The Palo Alto Daily News reports that the historical commission in the city of Los Altos voted unanimously for the historic designation Monday night. Any proposed renovations to the ranch-style home now require additional review.
The home is owned by Patricia Jobs, Steve Jobs' sister. The commission didn't need her permission for the designation although she could appeal its decision to the city council.
Zachary Dahl, a senior planner with the city, said Patricia Jobs requested corrections to the city's evaluation of the property, but then didn't respond when it was sent to her for review.
