Commission to consider options for easing up on ‘Palo Altans only’ rule in Foothills Park

Parks and Recreation Commissioner Ryan McCauley has formed an ad-hoc committee to look into ways to open up Foothills Park to all. On Tuesday, he presented some potential options for opening the park, including:

• limiting access on weekends and holidays to Palo Altans only and allowing everyone else to access the park at other times;

• allowing children in nearby communities to go to the park;

• requiring non-residents to reserve a pass to go to the park on weekends.
