Hi, I live in Oaktree Commons. We re blessed with Klein Park. This park in in use from dawn with ti chi until basketball til sunset. There's also a kids gym set, chess boards and a field that's used for soccer or football. This was a planed piece of our development. I hope the zoning board comes up with something. Our's is the closest park.

Please add new apartments and other high-density housing near Cuesta Park and Mtn. View High School, we have enough here already. To be fair there used to be a farm in that vicinity which should be zoned similarly so that north of Castro Street doesn't become the city's slums. I understand this is a desirable area overall and housing is high in demand, however the needs of the existing residents should be considered as well.
