When will the giant tree that fell across the creek months ago be removed? It's north of Newell Road. I guess the JPA is responsible for that, unless it was on private property?

Palo Alto Weekly/Online didn't mention where this is on Woodland Ave (between Newell and University). This road had not actually not been recently reopened, it was closed only for a few days maybe two weeks ago for major creek roadside work to be done, otherwise it's been open.

Please get your facts correct before you publish.

Also, while the section of Woodland Avenue has been repaved from Newell to University, the lower section has been neglected for 10+ years and is a moonscape.

Why won't the City of East Palo Alto repave Woodland Avenue from Newell to West Bayshore?

What makes the Palo Alto Weekly a local newspaper when it basically ignors East Palo Alto and the real concerns in the area?
