Letters to the Editor: City manager, affordable housing

Firing city manager hampers Los Altos council

LA council: Housing problem is solvable

Los Altos is required to build 123 above-market homes every year in the next Regional Housing Needs Allocation period. We’re also required to zone for 1,290 total below-market homes. If we fail these requirements, we’re subject to lawsuits, fines and unpleasant judicial orders. We’ve already seen the multimillion-dollar cost of attempting to avoid state mandates; we don’t need to repeat this mistake.

Letters to the Editor: Biking after dark, importance of library

As darkness falls, more and more cyclists in Los Altos are riding without lights of any sort. Dressed in dark clothing, they are like shadows passing in the night.
