.Letter to the Editor: Give Us Housing Options

Re: “What’s In Door” (GT, 5/19): We need multifamily housing in Santa Cruz—apartments, duplexes, row houses, quadplexes, dingbats, all of it. More options than the current 70+% of the city that is single-family homes only. There has been an old guard of savvy elite property owners who talk a progressive game while being on the wrong side of history for several decades, reinforcing segregation and furthering climate change through pro-sprawl and anti-city notions. We can build up and share the cities. The time is now.

  1. It’s unfortunate that YIMBY proponents feel the need to use shame and blame to get their point across. For a more balanced perspective please read Jeffrey Schwartz’s commentary on housing, affordable and otherwise, in today’s (Aug 4) Sentinel.
