Today we learn in the news that we have the 8th most ozone days and the 4th most particule pollution days and the 6th worst particule pollition in the country. In the country. And all anyone can think of is to add more people. These clergy should be asking how to move these seniors to a heathier climate in the Sierra or Arizona or Nevada. This is disgusting.

 It Don't Come Easy

More parks, less housing!

Regarding "that we have the 8th most ozone days and the 4th most particule pollution days and the 6th worst particule pollition in the country."

Our air is much cleaner than it was in the 70's and 80's.

The employees of American Lung Association and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District are pigs at the trough!

They say the sky is falling when it is NOT.

They should all go out and find jobs that contribute to society.

Here is a follow-up letter to the DJ:

Editor,

I want to express my appreciation to the Daily Journal for printing the letter written by clergy to the Peninsula Health Care District board (April 24 issue). It helped bring attention to an important issue regarding the appropriate use of public land and the need for affordable housing for our seniors. As the clergy letter said, alternatives to market-rate housing should be explored for the land under PHCD jurisdiction at the north end of Burlingame.

Here in Foster City, MidPen Housing has created a beautiful development with 66 units of affordable senior housing, and it was able to do it on only a half-acre of land of city-owned property.

I was the mayor that year and was proud of my colleagues as we all agreed this was an important issue in our city. The development is referred to as Alma Point and is a source of great pride to Foster City. I encourage the PHCD board to look into this model and to make a priority of building affordable housing on this land.

The letter writer is the former mayor of Foster City.
-------------------

She left off how much parking was provided for the 66 units in a half-acre and what the traffic study said about the development. Don't think that just because it's senior housing they don't drive and their family doesn't regularly drive to visit along with care givers, employees, food service vendors, medical aides, etc. It would be good if the DJ followed-up with the "rest of the story".
