I'm impressed for once our City Council makes the right decision. The new trees will create a new and improved ambiance and over time Pardee Park will look better than ever.

Great decision Council, congratulations!!!

Thank you to the city council of Palo Alto for making the correct decision related to these trees despite it being difficult and also in many cases unpopular. I am glad to see city council members address this issue and acknowledge that it is not the same situation as California Avenue. A thorough process was undertaken that involved investigation as well as public input. Good job for getting it right this time around.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
