Barron Park hillside spraying all about money
Original post made by Peter Deutsch on Mar 16, 2007
It is between nature and money.
As the article makes clear, the reason the school district destroyed the hillside was to save money. It was less expensive than maintaining safety by mowing.
So what lesson did the kids learn? That money talks louder than nature and that the affluent community of Palo Alto, no matter what it preaches, doesn't choose to spend its money on keeping its irreplaceable natural environment healthy.
What a sad situation.
