I encourage the public to attend the Feb. 22 meeting, “Understanding RHNA,” when representatives from California Housing and Community Development will explain how Regional Housing Needs Allocations (RHNA) were established.
Regardless of what Los Altos’ final RHNA numbers turn out to be, Los Altos must rezone many sites to accommodate more housing or suffer serious penalties for noncompliance. We urge Los Altos to be proactive in its approach to the new Housing Element, rather than engage in endless debates on targets and continue obstructionist policies toward development.
Local control is only possible if there is local accountability. The Feb. 22 meeting is 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. and is co-sponsored by the Los Altos Affordable Housing Alliance and many other Los Altos organizations, as well as SV@Home. Los Altos staff will be available to answer questions. To sign up, visit losaltosaffordablehousing.org/events.

Bad time to push
for recall, prep sports
Re. “Newsom and Let Them Play: A balancing act,” Page A1, Feb. 16:
It is upsetting to see there is a petition to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom over school closures. We haven’t dealt with a pandemic in more than 100 years and yet signers of the petition believe the governor should know exactly how to handle COVID.
He’s trying to keep people alive, trying to keep us safe. He’s getting advice and guidance from “experts” who are also learning by trial and error.
The medical experts are divided on school openings, as they were on outdoor dining. Parents who are so hellbent on their kids playing sports should realize health and lives are at stake. Many of us want kids homeschooled as long as it takes before sending them back to what could be a super spreader situation.
We are all hoping for the same thing where COVID is concerned: eradication and getting our lives back. We are not there yet.
Riverfront wrong place
for homeless shelters
Re. “S.J. may house homeless along Guadalupe River,” Page A1, Feb. 16:
Everyone deserves to enjoy our tax-funded public spaces without fearing for their safety or being exposed to hazardous refuse. No one should be living in them. Encouraging people to live along the river front is moving in the wrong direction.
