Developer loophole kills affordable housing

Regarding Taylor Morrison’s 6Sixty project (“Taylor Morrison’s 6Sixty units exceed $1 million,” Jan. 30):

Every day the alarm is sounded for more affordable housing and then this happens. The developer bulldozes 52 units (and eight heritage trees) to build 37 townhomes.

Blach student says bike lanes needed

I sat through the Dec. 11 Los Altos City Council meeting, where I listened to a debate on adding bike lanes in front of Blach Intermediate and Bullis Charter schools on Covington Road.

Progressive agenda causes friction

Regarding Paul Boetius’ “Other Voices” column on accessory dwelling units (“City’s accessory dwelling unit claims contradict facts,” Jan. 9), I would like our city council members to individually respond to the charges made by Mr. Boetius as to the veracity of his statements and why, if he is correct, Los Altos is making code and ordinance changes that were falsely presented to the citizens as factual – changes that most people don’t either know about or want.

It seems to me there is friction between some of the city management staff and our city council members, whereby the city employees either have their own agenda to change our character, don’t understand our city, don’t understand the law or just plain don’t like the fact that housing prices may not allow them to live here. I don’t know where their loyalty lies, but it would be wise if our city council objectively looked at the people in key positions and figure out what is going on.
