Sunnyvale needs more parks and schools. In most neighborhoods, the city is overbuilt with the existing infrastructure. Kids, dogs, sports teams, bike riders, etc. are competing for limited park space. The needs of the children should be of highest priority. I don't have small children, however, I would think they would be our primary concern. The building continues, seemingly unabated, with little regard for quality of life. I see this happening in MV, LA, SC, and Cupertino too. The city has approved apartment habitats that resemble hamster cages stacked one on top of each other. The City thinks only singles will occupy them so additional impact to the parks and schools will not be an issue. This is called "City Planning." To me this is called "GREED." The city wants more and more tax revenue.
