Patricia Gonzales was channeling my own thoughts in her letter (“Where’s the water?” Letters to the Editor, Dec. 9). I have watched in distress as rampant, ugly, cramped new housing developments spring up all over Santa Fe like so many toadstools after a rain. Where indeed is the water? Where is the open space in and around each of these cramped, ill-planned apartment complexes (for that is what they are)? This mayor and City Council need to address water source concerns and stop licensing illogical and damaging development all throughout Santa Fe. We are not living here to become millionaires. We live here for quality of life, including air, water and space.
