Just about everywhere you look in San Francisco, it seems like there is another building going up. I'm sure the same may very well be true in other cities, perhaps even where I am moving. Progress? Turning from traditional to modern? The end of one era and the beginning of another?
Folks will look at these construction zones in a variety of ways. Some will be happy and others not so much. Some might even be disgusted. Change happens though. It is a fact of life. For us to be fully engaged, we should be a part of the change. I'm not talking about just going along with anything that happens. If you don't like what you see, get involved. Go to planning meetings. Suggest alternatives.
Some wonderful things have happened around this great city of San Francisco in the years that I have lived here. Yes, it isn't the city it once was, and I hear the frustration in many voices because of this. Changes don't have to be bad though. We can help shape the way things evolve. We can make a difference!
