Quick take on Ventura

A shot of Jack with your planning

I like a musicians’ village with subsidized housing for artists from Palo Alto taking serious steps towards careers in music, that don’t have to move to Nashville or Austin to live while they develop their audience. Molly Tuttle, whose father Jack Tutle works at Gryphon could be a stakeholder or consultant. ie. Gryphon is near the site.
The other thought is that Matt Sonsini CEO of Sobrato, went to Gunn High and lived part of his high school years in Evergreen Park, somewhat near NVAC. Maybe he could walk the site. There’s another good guy now at Sobrato named D. Valentine sic.

The worst part of this deal is either that developers bought up a bunch of contingent sites and or pushed thru the larger upzone (14 acres >>>>60 acres) or the money wasted on the consultants and dog-and-pony shows.
