Some folks are still in denial, like John Knox White, (Alameda Journal, “My Turn” Feb. 5), folks who think that SunCal’s plan for the Point was just fine, and that we opposed it only because of the messy details. Wrong. We opposed it for the very reasons he supported it — dense housing.
Five thousand new dwellings at the Point, because, well, they’ll just find a way to walk to work, or take the bus, unlike all the people who live here now, and all the people who live in Tracy and work in San Francisco. Yeah, right. In your dreams.
Perhaps they haven’t noticed that bus service in Alameda has been cut back, not increased, even as traffic has gone up noticeably. But newcomers like John Knox White, Lauren Do and Michele Ellson, (“The Island”), will come to their senses and realize that their devotion to the theory of housing density is an academic exercise, not realpolitix!
