Leave People’s Park


Regarding “Berkeley recognizes need to reduce its carbon footprint” ( July 29): If Berkeley needs to reduce its carbon footprint, it might consider leaving People’s Park, 2.8 acres of natural creekbed and an internatio­nally renowned landmark recognized for its cultural significan­ce and dedicated to peace, the open space the entire town voted in 1986 for it to remain. Irreplacea­ble open space is irretrieva­ble, while UC Berkeley, California’s largest landlord, has plenty of places to build housing.

Carol Denney, Berkeley
