LOS ALTOS, Calif. (AP) -- 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 San Jose Mercury News reports that the historical commission in the city of Los Altos voted unanimously to designate the building a "historic resource" on 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.
