The Grant Road Open Space Fights Not Over; Please Join Our Cause!
Original post made by Daniel Mart, Cuesta Park, on Nov 7, 2009
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.
