Uh oh- paid for with city money AND a partnership with a developer? Sounds like the kind of thing Chuck Bernstein would have voted against! Fortunately, the rest of us can enjoy it.

Thank you to the Arrillga family, for a wonderful facility that will be enjoyed by hundreds of children and their families. Please know you are appreciated. Thank you too for everything you have done for Menlo School, Stanford, Castilleja and the list goes on. Your generosity touches many lives.

I toured the gym today. Its very nice -- lots of light, great playing floor, and lots of room for multiple activities. I appreciate the effort that the community put into getting this done over the many years. We now have a great facility for the community to use.

Looking forward to playing some hoops.
