The author forgot to mention all the shootings and dead and injuries that happened every day. Whey hide it? Sadly, it is one of the biggest realities of EPA, and the officials have not done much about it. Except for some publicity couple of weeks ago. We need to bring get serious abut crime first so people and especially our kids can enjoy the housing development without having to sacrifice their safety. What good is it to have a golden cage, when you can experience freedom on the streets?

@ Do not hide it
It's really not relevant to this story. AND as you said, it's a reality, so no need even to discuss it in this story of development and growth to a, hopefully, less violent (maybe, maybe not) city.
EPA does have great potential for a good beginning.
No need to not try and make things better, just because it's out of control now.
If you don't build it, they won't come! :-) Thank goodness some investors saw the potential EPA can offer.
Just my opinion.

These changes offer a great opportunity for most of the current residents. We live in a perfect location, in the center of the Bay Area. We are located between two International airports which gives us choices on flights and fares. We can hop across the Bay on Dumbarten Bridge. We live on beautiful bay with trails to Mountain View and beyond. Everything is within easy reach. East Palo Alto needs the revenue to improve our schools/education system. Don't make people move out of the earea for a better school system! East Palo Alto has remianed a hidden secret for too long - and gangs want it to stay that way. A better educational system (vocational training also) is the best way to remove the gangs.
