The City website says they are removing 25 trees "for safety reasons".Read Morehttp://walnut-creek .org/news/displaynews.asp?NewsID=907&TargetID=1 That's the code word for "we don't want them." The interesting part is that the city web site does not match the signs posted to the trees in front of the Heather Farm pre-school (which state the trees are "undesirable"). I presume the lovely and vibrant Magnolia trees in Civic Park were not on this list because they were merely in the way of an art project that few actually want and that we can't afford.

It must be something 'special'. When I walked by the other day, I saw the city's videographerRead Morerecord ing the workers digging a big rectangular hole.

Why the hell is there a need for an art project in the middle of a lovely park with grass, treesRead Moreand flowers? Is this the Bufano "masterpiece"? Seems strange the Bob Simmons, the green open space urban farmer man would approve of removing beautiful trees and push to install that monstrosity. This town with it's "leaders" in city hall never ceases to amaze me!

I will stay home to watch the parade of arts, library (with signs), swimming pool, etc groupiesRead Morecome before the council in support of a sales tax increase in an attempt to right the extravagant spending on unnecessary and low priority feel good projects over the past 10+ years. Go to protest you say? Been there and done that and all it accomplished was rudeness from the previous councils who had already made up their minds to spend, spend, spend on their pet projects.....which is why we are now in financial hot water.

OMTWF, word is that the "out houses", "pods", "storage units" are for Read Moresale but no takers yet. Wonder how much the City will lose on this brilliant venture?

I am beginning to believe this is a joke - Small signs, cigarette buts everywhere. Where I liveRead Morethe re are no signs, people are still smoking in multi family units. Why pass this if Walnut Creek isn't going to enforce it.
