Consider impact of First Street Park

Although the proposed First Street park looks attractive initially, I do have concerns regarding this development. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see the plans when they were on display. However, my understanding was that underground parking would replace the existing spaces and a green open area would create the park.

The local impact: loss of parking for an indeterminate period during construction; escalation of noise; additional congestion if the park becomes a site for outdoor daytime and evening events; and need for a higher level of security at night.

Stamp out mail theft in Loyola Corners

Mail theft isn’t just a problem in Los Altos Hills (“LAH residents vigilant about mailbox theft,” Nov. 2).

In our Loyola Corners neighborhood, I had several days of mail stolen, two other neighbors have had packages stolen from their mailboxes and a fourth had a package stolen from his doorstep – all in the past two weeks.

Return ground track to original position

Thank you for the Oct. 26 article “Airplane noise committee offers proposals for relief,” which pointed out that the “12-member committee remained neutral on the most controversial mitigation proposal – moving the ground track back to the original position prior to March 2015.”

The committee report cites this reason: “(T)he FAA has repeatedly indicated that changes to the San Francisco Bay Area airspace pursuant to NextGen are not reversible. The FAA has repeatedly advised the Committee that the 2012 federal legislation reauthorizing the FAA required the FAA to adopt and use advanced technology to modernize the air transport system.”
