Palo Alto is fast becoming a dormitory town.

It seems that office parks, condos and upmarket retail are the only things that get approved around here.
Where is the charm that Palo Alto once was? Where can Palo Altans go to have some fun? Why can't we keep some recreational venues in Palo Alto? Why do we have to go out of town for most of our recreation? Why can't we have large full service supermarkets and big box stores since most of us use them? Why do we have to go out of town for most of our regular shopping for groceries, affordable clothing and household items?
Why is it that if we even complain about it that we are told recreational space is too expensive to keep, and we have to have office space or condos instead?
What are we doing with our town?
