How to bring jobs to Palo Alto, benefit residents and increase Palo Alto's net worth.

Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jan 13, 2010

We can look to the Campus for Jewish Life in South Palo Alto to learn how to do this. A large piece of property came on the market (Sun Microsystems). The CJL Foundation was formed in October 2001 and fundraising began for the land acquisition. We need to from a Palo Alto Neighbors Foundation (PANF).

What kind of jobs are you creating? Low-paying public-supported jobs? Those kinds of jobs cost the community money. The jobs may have benefits to the community, but whether or not the benefit is worth the cost is debatable. And if the job pays so little money that the employee cannot afford to live in Palo Alto, then you are also creating traffic and smog.

Or are you talking about private-sector jobs that pay enough money so that the employee can buy a home and support a family in Palo Alto?
