Measure C would prevent ‘downtown nightmare’
When my neighbor stopped by my house this spring and asked me to sign the citizens’ parklands initiative – now Measure C – I did not understand the need for it. Were public parks and public lands really under threat of development? I didn’t think so.
Now I have read all the ridiculous plans the city has for our tree-lined public parking plazas – and now I get it. The entire Downtown Vision is a crony developer’s dream – public housing, higher and denser building and (instead of trees and easy parking) so-called programmed spaces. It certainly is a recipe for making Los Altos look like downtown Redwood City.
