At the 30 OCT 2017 SDCC monthly meeting, the environmentally astute Tim Solanic said that saving the city’s Live Oaks should be “The Norm, not the exception”. Is that a voice in the city’s wilderness speaking out? Destroying a magnificent tree that has taken a century or more to grow to make way for a structure that probably will not last a hundred years seems to point out our short-sightedness at the expense of long term goals for our city. What do we want for our city and for our future generations? Think about what you want to show your great grand children and talk about. We should all want a remarkably durable city of quality with a deep sense of history.
