Takes issue with tone of letter

Monterey Herald -- Jan. 22, 2010

In his letter of Jan. 19, Glenn Robinson is disingenuous and misrepresents my correspondence concerning the general plan update. The 266 lots are long-approved lots of record supported by current infrastructure. Moreover, if affordable housing units were ever built in Mid-Valley, they would reduce that 266.

The special treatment area for Rancho Canada mandates 50 percent of the housing stock as affordable housing. By demanding the removal of the special treatment area, Robinson and the Carmel Valley Association must have something against our firefighters, nurses, teachers and sheriff's deputies who would like to live in Carmel Valley but can't afford it.

Eliminating the special treatment area eliminates that guarantee. Why do that? There are several special treatment areas in the general plan update, and a special treatment area doesn't necessarily mean any project will be approved or built.

I also wrote my letter to oppose six people attempting to insert themselves into the general plan update so late in the process. They have no authority, moral or otherwise, to speak for Carmel Valley or demand Monterey County staff weigh their opinions more than mine.
