Would the latest Mayfield plans include provisions for CalTrain Northbound passenger drop-off, parking, bus/taxi/shuttle?

Somebody should school Tim on the fact that Redwood trees can take moisture right out of the fog and humid air coming off the bay via their unique needles, as many around here do.

I have no issues with removing non-native trees, though large, well-established samples should be left intact. New, small trees don't make any significant shade for decades, and shade on homes can keep utility bills and excess power usage from various air-cooling appliances down in the summer.

That's thinking GREEN in two directions at once (saved vintage trees AND less power consumption). Too bad logic and common sense doesn't count here ;-) ...only profit.
