Downtown's Shade Trees May Be Replaced With Palms

$1.5 Million?!?!? Are you KIDDING ME?! I'm stunned and so upset this is even being considered. There is nothing wrong with our beautiful trees on Broadway - and the fact that with ALL the other things you can spend $1.5 M - improving city streets/potholes, removing graffiti, helping our schools, and so much more - this is what you come up with? I like our big trees that offer more shade and oxygen. It adds diversity to our city. Plant palms in a new development if you want, but it's utterly ridiculous and a waste of money to dig up (and I assume destroy) perfectly good trees. Because how many people have visited San Diego and said "Gee - my trip to San Diego was pretty great - we really enjoyed the beaches, restaurants, shops, historic buildings....but dang it, I what REALLY would have made it so much better was if Broadway was lined with palm trees....". please.
