There is a huge development planned for “Butcher’s Corner” (see Blog for “now” vs “planned” photos) – the piece of land at the corner of Wolfe, El Camino, and Fremont. That is already the 2nd worst intersection in Sunnyvale (after 101 & 237) and this will make it just a nightmare.
PLEASE write the Sunnyvale city council at email@example.com to tell them the plans should *not* be approved – at the very least ask them to wait until the new City Council takes office in January. The city council has seen how close measure M came to passing, and how every incumbent lost. They will be responsive if they get enough emails indicating their own re-election might be in danger if they approve it.

Sunnyvale should buy it from De Anza Properties for a park. There is $18M unspent in the park dedication fund and Vidovich only spent $14M to buy it.
They are trying to get this through in the last minute while everyone is pre-occupied with holiday events by combining the final EIR report AND final plan approval (which I have never seen done) on the same Dec. 13 session – the last council session before the new council takes over.
