Did you miss this?
As we've been reading in all the papers, Palo Altans may soon be asked to vote on a massive Arrillaga development, ushering in a high density vision for Palo Alto. Whose vision is it?
Residents before us have wrestled with this before, you have to love the passion.
The near fistfight in City Hall, in 1996 is a must read.

As you said, whose vision is this? NOT that of the residents! I can't imagine that any of us wants to live in another Manhattan. Do the city fathers want us all to move elsewhere so they can turn PA into one big business center? What in the world are these people thinking?

Have you been by the huge new development at the San Antonio Shopping Center on El Camino and San Antonio? Granted this is in Mountain View, but it will affect our south Palo Alto with much more traffic. These are multiple massive buildings for condos with the first floors slated for shops. Talk about Manhattanizing! These dense projects are a huge change to our environments. We've already overbuilt on El Camino with very dense townhouses that go up to the curbs (replacing Rickey Hyatt and the old bowling alley, huge areas).
Looks like the planners want to move to high density, never mind what those of us who live here think and pay taxes.
