The increasing NIMBYness of Flood Triangle is deleterious, imo. Cutting off Belle Haven from the rest of the MP is classist, elitist and dangerous because it means residents w/out cars or who're too young to drive have no safe means to get to school, work, etc. Crossing at Willow certainly is dangerous for residents and commuters.

As a MP westside native, I am disturbed by the "Palo Alto-ing" of the decisions, povs and attitudes of many of the newer MP residents. They are too cowardly to admit how elitist and classist they are, but it doesn't change the truth.
