Wave goodbye to the Old Stanley trees!!
Original post made by unclehomerr.., Downtown, on Aug 3, 2008
A couple of years ago, the City Council authorized a 'traffic study' on Old Stanley Blvd. $70,000 was authorized to study traffic patterns and make recommendations to the council.
Friday, I noticed a large number of utility poles and trees with white paint spots sprayed on them. Do you think these are the ones selected for removal?? Have the recommendations been presented for council action? Will the great spotted trees be gone before anyone's aware?? Did council already act on this... quietly and without public scrutiny or discussion??
This street is a great representation of 'Old Pleasanton' with the canopy of shade and well established trees. Take a ride with your kids and/or grandkids so they can see it before it's gone.
