Now that these have officially been sold to a developer what are we going to see? Senior housing, does not on the surface provide more students to our schools, if these are sold to PA seniors then their original homes do provide homes for families, thus increasing the burden on our schools. If family housing is built, then it will provide burdens on our neighbors in LA schools. The bowling alley going will provide one less safe place for our kids (my son has already brought home his bowling pass for this summer).
We need more sales tax revenue. A child friendly restaurant could work. A big box store, Kohls, school supply store (Staples), something we really "need" in Palo Alto would be useful. Please Mr. Developer, consider what is best for Palo Alto, not what is best for your ideals, when deciding what to do with your purchase. We would love to have a bowling alley remain, but put the parking at the front not the back!!
