His letter nails it. Is anybody listening out there? Just say "no". Thanks, husband, for posting this! We can't build our way out of this housing crisis. Limiting commercial development is the first way to get a handle on this. What do you think, Bruce Dickinson?

Can't agree more! I've been told by City Officals that next year, Cities won't even have a say in what is built! As long as they follow SACRAMENTO's plan of build high and build more along the Traffic corridor, they can build as cheaply and large as possible. All so that these people can take the non existent mass transit. They are destroying the Bay Area and the article is right on.

I agree, a totally vicious cycle that cannot sustain itself. In the end, it costs each city more to sustain more people and services, and in all these years, the region has never gotten around to serious widespread and functional mass transit. The little we have still costs a fortune to operate and maintain.

For all the hoopla surrounding electrification, Caltrain is going to gain just 1/2 train an hour, up to 6 trains instead of 5 1/2 each direction, that's it! And I'm not even sure how many stop in Burlingame anymore. "Transit Oriented Development" is a real farce.

When I saw Overbuilding Opus I thought it was about the new Broadway overpass. Eight lanes wide! It's basically the same as 101. And it's actually wider than the San Mateo Bridge (only has 6 lanes).

And one light pole every 20'. One overhead light then twin lights in between. Talk about light pollution. Who's paying the bills for all those lights?
