It has been an eyesore for years, so I view this as progress. What I don't know is what the plans are for that land parcel.
I would have loved to see it built out with a city owned and operated gymnasium, to accmodate the demand by volleyball and basketball teams that have to go outside of Palo Alto to play many of their games--we just don't have the capacity here town to meet the requirements of such teams and leagues.
I suspect the developer of the property has other plans for the place. Anybody know what those plans are?
