Edgewood Plaza has a big parking lot? That's because many other tenants haven't moved in yet. They're dreaming.
The design of the parking lot is odd too.Weird access.And too much housing.

Philz Coffee in Midtown is making a lot of money for the Palo Alto Police, who are not shy about ticketing cars parked in the bike lane across the street.

If that is true Philz, then as a driver I am pleased to hear because in my experience the cop cars and the fire trucks are the worst offenders and they need a few tickets themselves.
Saying that, the whole Loma Verde/Middlefield intersection has gotten real bad in the past few years, possibly the amount of time Philz has been there. The reconfiguration of the parking lot hasn't helped because it has confused many as to which is the entrance and exit, which never used to be the case. Even the parking lot down by the liquor store is confusing as stores have claimed spots for their own customers.
This intersection needs to be looked at. On many occasions I have not been able to exit Loma Verde on the gree light to turn due to pedestrians and the volume of turning traffic. It is a busy bike intersection and also has many pedestrians due to Philz and also to catch the buses and shuttles.
Please PAPD do something to help this intersection work.
