In response to Matt Stewart. I live 2 1/2 blocks from University Ave and I live there precisely because it means I can easily walk to University Ave and enjoy the semi-urban atmosphere which I do often. I can assure you there is plenty of sunshine. Increasing the 50ft height limit would not bother me at all.

On May 25 a Palo Alto Public Works Dept. truck with two city employees pulled up in front of our house. I thought they were here to prune the city-owned tree in our front yard whose branches are now hanging over the street and sidewalk. Instead, one of the workers put a ladder next to the street sign in front of our house, climbed it, and used some type of aerosol cleaner to clean the street sign.

Since Palo Alto is now trying to decide which programs to cut, wouldn’t it make more sense to eliminate the two city workers assigned to cleaning street signs than to cut the funds for the railroad crossing guards?
