They took all the trees
Put em in a tree museum
And they charged the people

Dont it always seem to go
That you dont know what youve got
Till its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Wow, we are living in a Joni Mitchell song. This is surreal.

How much is being spent to save 1600 people some money on flood insurance?

i'm so sad about this.. I grew up down the street from Cuesta and see no reason for it. And to take away McKelvy Park is upsetting to me..
