The April 20 Almanac story that reported this decision noted that "the survey had only a 27 percent response rate." However, a 27 percent expression of opinion by Willows residents is a much greater percentage of people than the hard core of traffic calming activists who dominate the endless charettes, roundtables, and other exercises. I would suggest that the results of the survey are more reflective of the opinions of the people of the Willows than any number of traffic-planning get-togethers.
Now, Menlo Park, after 20 years, can stop wasting money on a Willows "traffic plan" and just leave the neighborhood streets alone — just like we want it.
