Letters to the Editor: Week of June 20

LA city code regulates height, not stories

The Town Crier article about the Sorensens’ building plan contains several inaccuracies (“Sorensens’ 3-story building plan returns to Planning Commission,” June 6).

For one, the file photo shown does not represent the revised proposal that went to the Planning Commission June 7.

Gorilla contact proves conservation danger

I was very interested in the Town Crier’s May 23 article “The great esc-‘ape’” about the mountain gorillas of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, because I too was lucky enough to visit the gorillas (Kwitonda group) in 2016 with my daughter, Jena, who works for the International Gorilla Conservation Programme.

We were asked to stay at least 7 meters from the gorillas, to avoid stressing them and to reduce the risk of disease transfer; even common colds carried by humans can be deadly to the gorillas.

What’s to study? Put parks issue on ballot

Thank you to the Town Crier for its recent articles on the parks initiative in Los Altos. From what I’ve read, the group that organized this initiative has met all of the legal requirements for putting this measure on the ballot, including obtaining almost twice the number of signatures necessary.

Why does the Los Altos City Council talk about “studying” the measure and producing their own “counter initiative”? Put it on the ballot and let we the people study it and vote on it. That’s how democracy is supposed to work.
