Plan to Bulldoze the Open Space

The Residential lot was dedicated to Open Space in 1979

On August 5, 2022, a plan was submitted to the Woodside Planning Department to bulldoze the Open Space and build an additional 35 parking places. This would allow a massive expansion of the Bakery and cause more traffic and congestion in our country town.  The Town is the owner of the Open Space easement and has not approved sacrificing it yet. There are a number of documents that we received from the Sage Schaan, the Deputy Planning Director that are public and shown below the maps.


The Town should not abandon the Open Space Easement


The following is in the text of the Open Space Easement document that George Roberts signed in 1979.  The easement was assigned to the Town in perpetuity.  The Town must obey the California Code regarding abandoning an Open Space Easement as per the code mentioned below..



The below findings must be approved by the Town Council .

It is our belief that they can not be legally found, but we can not be sure.
