how about projects to become a down-to-earth city? philanthropy to help the down and outers and less fortunate. palo alto is not what it once was. get off of your high horse and address the downcast and regular people. palo alto is not shangri-la. it's just a place that is somewhere and it is somehow. wake up everyone

That Mitchell Park Library is an abomination.
It has absolutely NO connection to the park or surrounding residential neighborhood. The massing and materials of construction are totally inappropriate and should be a loud embarrassment for the Architectural Review Board.
While I can appreciate that the ARB is a volunteer board...they need to go. Let's count the community disappointments that this ARB has hoisted upon:
1. Mitchell Park Library - Disaster
2. Alma Plaza - TOTAL Disaster
3. JCC - Massive Disaster
4. "Gateway" - Horror on Alama (only second to Alma Plaza)
5. Housing at Alma/Homer
Please!Thank you for your time and effort,now please just move on.
This insane urbanization theory the ARB is enamored with is an unmitigated disaster for the City. We DON'T WANT BUILDINGS PUSHED TO THE CURB...we like our set-backs. We don't want towering slabs of stucco hanging over the street.

More whining about the JCC. Thank god it was built, otherwise the chronic malcontents in the city would have nothing to whine about!
