How about helping us turn the property at Maybell into a community orchard, like Gamble Gardens only for trees? Saves around 100 EXISTING mature trees right there, a last remnant of historic orchard, trees that will otherwise be torn out, too, and creates a resource for the schools.
(PAHC may have misjudged and missed their funding application deadline anyway - the city staff report says the zoning ordinance doesn't go into effect until 31 days after the 2nd reading, which is end of July, and with a referendum, even later, but their deadline was July 3, and a basic requirement was having their zoning in place. Neighbors aren't likely to stop at the referendum, either, because the overdevelopment of that area affects children's safety.)

To PA Arborist and Canopy: Please make sure that the new trees are of varieties that are least likely to cause allergies

Adding evergreen oaks to Arastradero is not appropriate. The park would benefit from deciduous oaks such as Valley Oaks and Blue Oaks which are threatened and more suitable to the site.
