Letter: A welcome decision on artificial turf

Thank you, Portola Valley Town Council, for upholding the core values of our town founders in denying artificial turf playing fields.

Our founders had the foresight to preserve the natural scene through geological zoning and detailed planning rules that you, and former council members, have carefully supported through the years.

That is why we live here.

Marilyn Walter, Coyote Hill, Portola Valley

Let us remember that one of our Town's founding fathers had artificial turf on his property! He used it because he wanted to conserve water.
Just sticking to the facts.
