I'm a tolerant person but I do not want to live in an eruv. I feel that having my home encircled by a religious boundry is an invasion of my personal rights. Is it possible to find out the exact location of the line, since it is in the public domain?

Concerned athiest--the eruv is not actually all in the public domain--in many places it crossed private property, with the permission of the owners and some of it is natural--the freeways and the creeks.
If you feel so strongly about it, I suggest you hire a lawyer and file a lawsuit.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
