Letter: Planned Bay Area
May 03, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Regarding the story, “What is Plan Bay Area?” in the May 1 edition of the Daily Journal, add two million residents to the Bay Area, where do they get these thoughts? Haven’t they driven around the Bay Area lately? Our highways and streets are packed.

We cannot and do not want to sustain any more housing.

A good example of this bad thinking is the area between Sunnybrae Avenue and 25th Avenue on Delaware Street in San Mateo. They are developing Kmart shopping center, Denny’s on Concar and Delaware, the shopping center kitty-corner from Kmart, the old San Mateo Bowling alley, the old police station, the printing company next to the police station and of course Bay Meadows. All of these residential developments have required limited parking with the idea that these people that live there will depend on trains and buses for their transportation.

The city of San Mateo and the Association of Bay Area Governments believes that these families that live near the rail corridor will not own cars because the transportation in the area will take you anywhere you want. I’m awake, the citizens of the Bay Area are awake, it’s time ABAG and the cities that support it wake up. We cannot afford these kinds of thoughts. Fix what we have first.
