Don't forget about the awful 2555 Park Blvd development that is attributing to boxing us all in.

when hippies and Deadheads came here to party???

That's a weird reduction and distortion about the history of Keystone, Edge and Illusions as a cultural amenity.

Suffice it to say a) the hippies and deadheads were from here, did not merely come here, b) they stopped a war rather than, like the new brand of tech workers, seek to profit from it.

Cali Ave is like a war zone and a reconstruction.

How about a park for Ventura, if Fry's leaves, instead of more dense housing? As precedent i offer Greer Park which when the drive-in movie left, became a major Palo Alto public amenity. (Drive-in>brick-and-mortar::parks)
