Original post made on May 7, 2008

From the sky, Palo Alto is a sea of green broken by a grid of gray. The gray, of course, is the city's streets, most built decades ago. But now, few developers want to use their valuable land to build wide, straight streets, flanked by sidewalks and trees.
Instead, they're narrowing the streets, clustering parking in small bulbs and using different "permeable" materials for pavement.

If it is a right of way that is being built, then we should have access through the development. If a development is closed to nearby residents who want to use the new development as a short cut to wherever they are going, then it is not right of way. Yoriko needs to make sure that all developments are thru streets if she wants crediibilty on this one.
