While the Villa Montalvo Arboretum is a very nice place, there's really no sufficiently distinct notability associated with it, or any other reasonable basis for its constituting a separate article, rather than merely being a section of Villa Montalvo.

No one cares; I'm just going to go for it. Its a very sound proposal, I can assure you. KevinOKeeffe (talk) 06:39, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
A requested edit by an editor with a conflict of interest was declined. A consensus could not be reached.
Can this page be renamed to "Montalvo Arts Center" (the correct current name of the organization and location) with "Villa Montalvo" as a possible subsection? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
If that's the current correct name, I have no objection. Let's wait and see what other editors say. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 09:43, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
I concur with the name change, except that I do not see Villa Montalvo as a subsection, but as a redirect. I thought perhaps that Montalvo Arts Center was the name of the entire location, while Villa Montalvo the name for just the building, but that doesn't seem the case, according to the article. --S Philbrick(Talk) 14:58, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Oppose. If you want to have an article about the arts center, make a new article called Montalvo Arts Center. This article is about the historic estate owned by Senator James D. Phelan. It should describe all the history, all of the property including the arboretum, and much of the modern activity. Binksternet (talk) 17:08, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
The historic estate is now called Montalvo Arts Center. How do you usually deal with a place that changes its name? A new article would have exactly the same information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:51, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Declining request for lack of consensus. Suggest you either (edit request) expand the Arts Center section and created a redirect for Montalvo Arts Center. – S. Rich (talk) 17:38, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for leaving the name. In the early seventies I lived in Cupertino and still remember "Villa Montalvo" as one of the most beautiful places in the Bay Aerea. I don’t associate it with art, but remember it for its serene architectural and garden beauty, its romantic name (better even than Boboli), the hikes in the hills, people seated on the grass, California … . I still long for it, far away in Europe. — Fritz Jörn (talk) 15:09, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
