Meanwhile Alma Plaza in Palo Alto is still sitting derelict after how many years? Anyone see a problem here? When NIMBYists, naysayers and self-appointed neighborhood leaders, who represent their own selfish interests and a small percentage of the population, are so powerful that they control our city council and determine what happens in our city, then we get situations like this.

Time to put the Palo Alto process to sleep and put these self-appointed people who feel that the world revolves around them in their place.
