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.
