Growing up between Showers and Ortega, it was great, really great to have a few open fields left to walk the dog, play ball and bike around on with the BMX. Now, there are too many cars, too many people and too many rules. Convert Mayfield back to an orchard or better yet, a community garden. Driving through Livermore Saturday, they're building acres and acres of condos. Why don't you move there?

That was quite rude. Why should anyone be forced to live 40 miles away from where they work? I down-sized and moved into the Crossings so my Wife and I could live 4 miles from where we work. The Crossings is highly successful smart growth, and so is the Mayfield proposal. The jobs-to-homes imbalance and suburban sprawl of the SF Peninsula is finally catching up with it. We need denser infill housing, NOW!
Mayfield will never become orchards again unless you buy it and make that happen. Got $100+ million sitting around to buy it?

I agree with Matt. That was rude. The orchards are gone. You can't go back there unless you personally buy back the land to plant them.
