Re: “The Blair Park Project

Anyone familiar with Moraga Canyon and Blair Park can readily determine that the proposed sports complex is totally inappropriate for the site. How did it get this far through the approval process? I believe it is because many Piedmont residents have little understanding or familiarity with that corner of the city, and do not appreciate the magnitude of the earth moving and retaining walls that will be required to shoe-horn this large project into a small space. Several less costly and more reasonable alternatives have been proposed, but the city has failed to give them serious discussion or consideration. The fact that the PRFO is unwilling to consider financing anything other than their ill-conceived design gives the impression that they think their money trumps the legitimate concerns of the Piedmont Planning Commission, the adjacent (mostly Oakland) neighborhoods, and the greater good. As a resident who will be impacted by this project, I can only characterize the Piedmont attitude as "Let them eat cake."
