This is as depressing as it gets.
With all that’s known about brain health, boxing (and other high CTE inducing sports) should at the least be phased out by a rationale society. But no. Keep the gladiators at it.

Years ago, the city council chose not to ban gyms/workout businesses from Cal Ave., restricting them to side streets. So now there’s a gym at Birch, and soon
another across the street with boxing. This is Palo Alto - we should do better.

Just another reason to shop and dine elsewhere like Menlo Park and Los Altos where they still have stores worth browsing.

@Felix These fitness gyms are not for you. Clearly. Does not make it right for you to put them down. Be better. I can bet that you dont even have a fitness bone in you. Which is ok. Why comment on something you have know interest in. Shame on you. DO BETTER FELIX

Someone please explain why manicure and beauty salons are bad because their clients aren't out browsing nearby businesses during their appointments but gyms are good although their clients also inside during their workout sessions.

The city's recent studies of Cal Ave manicure salons had a bunch of us wondering where they all were. So I did a Google search for salons and saw the city and/or its retail consultant had incorrectly DOUBLED the number of salons EVEN when included streets near Cal Ave.

I wish the new business well but wonder A) Does anyone at City Hall ever get out of their offices before they recommend changes like restricting the number of salons, B) why they're studying non0existent problems and C) if they ever hire consultants with local knowledge?
