Letter to
Santa Monica City Council
Keep Palisades Park Green

We urge you to recognize the value of this unique and irreplaceable urban forests. It offers peace and contentment to residents, respite for tourists, and protection for the bluffs.

It is however being degraded by repeated and unsustainable use. Lawns are trampled; soils are compacted. The results go far deeper than the annoying ugly scars. As the lawns die back the potential for erosion increases. In winter, water runoff will generate landslides and threaten the bluffs.

Please monitor what's happening to the park. Please prohibit unsustainable use. Please work to protect, restore, and preserve Palisades Park.
