The comment about not requiring parks in Mt View because of lack of space is bogus. Its just that the space available costs money. So just buy something and tear down the buildings. You are going to have to do it sometime. Start now!
Main road filled with industry and next to the trains is not a place for a park. Set aside money so a real park can be built. Sylvan park is only a 1/2 mile away, just make sure the side walks are built this time.
"Main road filled with industry...is not a place for a park."
Needless to say, a location like that is not a suitable place for family homes either. But the homes ARE there, so the need for said park there stands.
Like it was stated already, it's all about the money.
"...and next to the trains... "
Really? many cities have homes and neighborhoods right up against train tracks including Mountain View (Villa street, San Antonio Station area), and everyone has been fine with it.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
