Is Palo Alto Mirroring this San Francisco Housing Probem?
Original post made by Winslow Arbenaugh, Barron Park, on Aug 21, 2007
Here's a hint at where Palo Alto is headed if we keep listening to anti-development radicals that demonize every development of significance,
So, now they have Alma Plaza, Edgewood Plaza, and the Stanford project to chew on.
Note to prospective city council candidates: those of you who make it to the Council, take heed of the above article, as well as the dormant properties that small anti-development groups here want to stall, or stop altogether - or otherwise extort massive favors from developers that ends up costing new local residents more money.
It's time to look past the amateur developers (you know, the ones who don't own property, but want to tell others how to use it), and architectual sycophants who think that their opinion is the last word in urban design.
We need some common sense and vision when it comes to our city's future, not fawning attention paid to those whose favorite word is "no".
