Well there definitely is a parking problem at the Senior Center. If this new property provides parking for 35 cars, that will have been at a cost of only $100,000 each.
Two years ago, a property on Willowgate came up for sale right behind the current community gardens for about this amount. Would have provided a nice mini-park (or plenty of garden expansion space) in an area currently designated as "parks poor". Now, it's got a bunch of (albeit nice) row houses on it. Where was the city council then?
In future, if we know of a parcel of land for sale that would be a good city acquisition, who do we tell?
I think you can tell the Mountain View city council. I believe they will actually listen to residents.
Reminds me of a play called TINY ALICE.
Maybe Theatreworks should do it at MVCPA.
If the city is feeling "spendy" The city should buy the old Cottage property and the "fine estate" on Moffett Blvd. Those places are eyesores.
The mountain View city Council does not listen to the public, and is only concerned about their careers.
Been at that parking lot a few times when visiting Avenidas. Although wondering if MV has those kinds of millions to throw around in view of the state budget crisis, the property might actually work. The city has been trying to find a sizable teen center for a long time, and the church part and surrounding offices could serve the purpose. Look on Google maps, sat. view, and you can see also the L shaped classroom spaces. And currently there are probably 35 marked sparking paces, but there could be more. Perhaps also the small teen center house across the street could be sold to help offset cost. Now if they have to throw even more millions into the scheme for different buildings...
Don't miss out on the discussion!
