Yes indeed. Palo Alto in 2015 completed several construction projects. Great to have two libraries, a Stanford walking trail, California Avenue shops and roads and many more.

I feel fortunate to be a resident. More things to come in 2016.

I congratulate Jim Keene, the city manaher and Mayor Karen Holman.

Oñe of the lead contractors on 2100 el Camino real had said that the bay area is at the cusp of construction boom highest since 25 years. It is because of favorable interest rates, business opportunities and local interest.

It is great to see this positive growth. Let us do everything but a high speed rail. We can do other things and not dig up our land.

Respectfully

It is good to see things finished at last. Why on earth do things take so much longer in Palo Alto than anywhere else? I feel sure we will still be talking about things like the pedestrian/bike bridge over 101 and restoration of the Baylands Board Walk in ten years time. Let's get these things started and finished in a timely fashion, please.
