The Grant Road Open Space Fights Not Over; Please Join Our Cause!

Original post made by Daniel Mart, Cuesta Park, on Nov 7, 2009

Hi you all,

Please join our cause to preserve and protect the over-century-old open space on Grant Road in Mountain View, one of our last remaining patches of natural wilderness:

Developers have so much money; they basically use the status quo to say "screw you" to the public. Public hearings on housing and hotel developments are a joke, as the developer already knows that they've won; there is just so much money in these types of developments, and city governments are too cowardly and special...-interest-serving to stand up to for the greater good.

The status quo "has to change."

And anyway ... nobody is even buying houses now! And San Jose is currently seeing a record amount of empty office space!

The fight is not over.

I assume you'll pay for the property then.

That's my house, in front of the white 2 story! We sold it and moved in 2000 to Phoenix, AZ. We loved the orchard next door, the incredible mustard grass and blooming apricot trees. I absolutely support fighting development of open space; I live in the foothills 50 miles north of Phoenix; until the economy crashed hundreds of thousands of acres of prime Sonoran Desert were cleared for development, some of which sit wasted now. I will sign any petition anywhere to preserve open space.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
