    I fully support the Elton John AIDS Foundation, but why can’t the organization use the Pacific Design Center? Why do the citizens lose access to the park they pay for ? And why does the city insist on putting on events on top of the grass? The grass is in constant flux to grow back because of being built upon by temporary event structures. Move these events to the outdoor space across the street at the PDC.
