The people who live near this must be very excited about this project. What does it sound like when property values tank?

The defeat of proposal to build a huge library building in Holbrook Palmer Park for use by largely non-residents perhaps created an awareness of the need to preserve open space and the rural character of Atherton. Slowly the development and growth of the ten school campuses is taking place with new buildings and sport facilities etc. It is hard to object to these improvements but they come at a cost to the town not only in aesthetics but in additional traffic, police services and administration which is not borne by the schools involved.
It would be interesting to ask Atherton residents and, most importantly, the immediate neighbors how they feel about these "sports" improvements at Menlo College.
