INSTEAD OF FENCES

This is what our Fountain Area looks like today and for the past two years it has been fenced off and sits there looking like a "dead zone" which on one can enter. The Council is waiting for the Rains to come and help with filling these"iconic" fountains. This plaza could be a "Social Commons" which would be a place to read, play chess, and have a coffee. Instead, visitors look at it and say, why?
Our Citizens Communities, have been tasked to save water and put in natural climate friendly landscaping. Why can't Our City Leaders have the sensible outlook for their own City Hall Complex. Putting in fake grass sends the message that Oceanside is seeking the most cost effective way to deal with the problem of climate change. Our Citizens deserve better, much better!
