Major issues facing Palo Alto in the near future
Original post made by A concerned resident, Charleston Gardens, on Jan 8, 2007
1. Gathering support from South Palo Alto Residents for a new Mitchell Park library and community center.
2. Dealing with the flooding issue in flood zone areas of Palo Alto. The city must take action to prevent the people who do not live in the flood zone areas from being sued if or when flooding occurrs. Building codes and zoning changes and other actions that cost little money for the taxpayers need to be made. The Chaucher ?sp street bridge may need to be removed. The Palo Alto street may need to be made one-way and the lane near the creek made into a dike/earthen/sandbagged maybe 4'high.
3. A fast-trck undergrounding of all power lines in all of Palo Alto. This was started over 40 yeas ago and only certain "select" areas of the city has had underground lines installed mostly with the cost borne by those who do not have undergrounding in their areas.
I will add others as they come to mind.
