Baylands buildings - old becomes new and new left to rot?
Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jan 4, 2013
Why, I wonder, at the Baylands have they just redone the old Scout building and opened it as something new and special and let the old building with the boardwalk close and deteriorate? It makes me think that in another 25 years or so someone will decide that it should be renovated and they will have charity collections as well as calling it historical to keep it as part of Palo Alto heritage. I expect then that it will cause more dissent from future residents, some of whom will want to keep it for nostalgic reasons and others who will want to get rid of it because of progress. It is a shame that something can't be done with it now
