Palo Alto Bowl for sale
Original post made by ToldUSo, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Nov 2, 2006
So it seems that the PA Bowl is up for sale. Now I know the local NIMBYs won't like this, but we do not want any more housing. Fortunately if there is housing they will be Los Altos school district not ours, but we still don't need the housing. What we need, if we lose the bowling alley, is a good source of sales tax revenue. This means the type of stores we Palo Altans shop in regularly and we can attract our neighbors from Los Altos, Mountain View, Menlo Park etc. to frequent. Sales tax revenue is URGENT and at present we are suffering from lack of it. From our roads, to our libraries, to paying those who serve us by working for the city and so on and so forth. We need to preserve our quality of life by increasing our ability to generate sales tax.
