Drought-unfriendly landscapin­g


I was greatly surprised to see all of the plants and trees being installed along the Lark Avenue and Los Gatos Boulevard medians near the North Forty developmen­t in Los Gatos, given the dire drought conditions reported by the media and water district officials.

Apparently, although residents are expected to take drastic measures to reduce water usage, town officials felt that approving landscapin­g plans that will result in long-term water usage and maintenanc­e costs (on the taxpayer's dollar) was prudent. Please remember this when election time rolls around.
