I have designed this website here at my home on Grand Teton Dr. with YOU in mind at all times. I have listened to you when I ran into you at Milpitas events, in Milpitas stores, and when you emailed me for over 20 years. There is a Facebook page where you can comment and have a way to tell others what you like best now. GoMilpitas.com doesn’t just hope this site will strengthen our community: it has already been doing this for over 20 years! It was created in 1997, well before the city government site, even!
Unlike Patch, which is owned by AOL in New York, the income I make here from advertising gets mostly spent here in Milpitas. I get my hair cut at His ‘n Hers. I keep my money in the Commonwealth Credit Union. I go to local doctors and dentists as needed. I am a paying member and regularly attend the Chamber of Commerce, the Camera Club, Garden Club, and the Historical Society, though with my recent back problems, I’ve been rather home bound.
