One change I would like to see is the City's managing the finances of the Cubberley Center in a completely transparent fashion, and on a P&L (Profit & Loss) basis.
Currently, the finances of the Center are buried in the budget, or have to be requested via Public Information Requests. The City should change course and provide the residents, and the PAU ratepayers, a fully disclosed picture of the Center's finances.

With all the personalities on CC, I wonder if any actually attended Cubberley as many of us did. Some us us, Palo Alto ex-pats, wonder how deep are the roots of the current crop of city officials.
Can anyone inform me if any have bee around long enough (pre 1978) to have attended Cubberley?

I know, let's rezone Cubberly to make it a high density development! We could put baby seals or low-income seniors there, no one could argue with that! And as we know from other projects, seniors don't eat, go anywhere, or need any services! Four, five stories high! HUNDREDS of units!! Congestion to eliminate congestion! Who cares about quality of life? We'd never have to worry about satisfying ABAG again!
And as we all know, satisfying ABAG is the City's only priority.
(Note: I was joking in the first paragraph above.)
