Re: “All hands on deck: SLO County addresses a farm labor and housing shortage

NIMBYs and arsonists are both ultimately doing the same thing in their blocking the construction of housing.

Re: “It's the sunshine, stupid

It's revealing that many people in this "welcoming" city consider their aesthetic preferences to be more important than providing people with places to live. We should truly welcome new neighbors instead of displacing people through economic segregation.

Re: “Tensions boil over at July 26 SLO mayoral forum for Progressives Club's endorsement

It's bizarre that the "progressives" are the ones who are opposing change. Change-averse folks are normally known as "conservatives".

Re: “Political circus

These so-called progressives are hypocrites. They call themselves progressive, but opposing new housing is the definition of conservative.

Re: “Development may give locals a chance

So many of the older generation in this city are saying "I got mine" and the heck with making room for anybody else. It's sad.

Re: “SLO development on Foothill moves forward despite opposition

The overall effect on local control is that these state laws prevent locals from moving the goal posts at the last minute. No longer can residents come out against housing with non-specific, subjective objections about the "character" of apartment buildings.

Re: “Chorro and Marsh

Building dense housing is an environmentally sound way to build that can allow people to live close to where they work, and reduce traffic as a result. We've led ourselves into this housing crisis by blocking housing, and our community has become one of "haves" and "have nots." I hope readers will stop to consider where Ms. Kinney's NIMBY arguments have gotten us so far.
