hmmmm...in Atherton there are one family per acre... maybe average of 4 people per acre.. How many people there are in Palo Alto per acre? Anyone? I think that is great news. Good to know about neighbors, especially when it comes to property values and trying to figure out how to resolve equal housing issues and why some are walking around on the streets.
