I love the Botanic Garden! I grew up at the end of Mission Canyon Rd.(we moved there in 1960) and am living there now. I'm not a Luddite: I understand the need for updating the structures and maintaining the grounds; but the stated mission of the "Vital Plan" encourages traffic that far exceeds the capacity of the Garden and the Canyon. For the safety of visitors and residents alike, a different approach is necessary. Instead of trying to concentrate all elements of the "Plan" in the same location, archives, fund-raising events, many classes and even some offices could and should be located off-campus. This is not a radical solution and is easily understood by anyone who knows the limitations of the Garden's location.
