When we went to refinance our home, we had trouble with the appraisal, because apparently there is so little turnover in this neighborhood, there wasn't a single sale in the neighborhood for months, and only 5 homes went on the market and sold for the entire previous year. The real estate agent said that's always been the case here, no one wants to sell. People move in and stay. I've lived in other parts of Palo Alto, and this is the first time I've felt at home, because people are neighborly, and there isn't that transience that is so typical in every Silicon Valley community.
It's funny, I know or have met everyone mentioned in this article, even though they aren't on my side of Green Acres. Some are real pillars of the broader community. The community spirit doesn't just happen, I think residents really cherish it.
I'm worried about the Gunn enlargement more for the effect on the kids and the community of an ultra-large school than on the increased traffic, but that is also a concern. I wonder if anyone making the decisions for this actually lives in this neighborhood...
