Letter: ‘It is remarkable that the issue aroused such controversy …’

They did their jobs—bravo!

The Marin County Board of Supervisors approved the Draft Housing Element on Dec. 9, identifying development sites for 378 new units of affordable housing. Although this is less than half of the 791 approved in the previous Housing Element, still it’s a good start, and the Board of Supervisors should be thanked for doing the right thing. It is remarkable that the issue aroused such controversy, given the obvious need for such housing. Perhaps the controversy will now pass, and Marin can begin to take steps to one day becoming an affordable, livable and, if it’s not too much to hope for, a more economically and ethnically diverse community.
