No, Lupe Molina, it was not opposition to vertical that caused California's sprawl, but the availability of relatively cheap land surrounding more expensive urban areas -- just like what you see in New Mexico and pretty much everywhere else.

It's important to note that the city initially planned to just push this through, but only backed down to allow more citizen input after a public outcry. And so long as the city follows the quasi-judicial process for decision-making, citizens will have very limited say on where these mult…

The question becomes, why didn’t the city demand answers from the developer on these and other crux issues? Is the city so desperate for new apartments that it will approve them at any cost?

Barbara expresses the view of the majority of Candlelight residents. It’s important to note this proposal does not include affordable housing. In other words, the developer, Merritt Brown, and its representative, Jenkins/Gavin, want maximum density, design flexibility and profit while off…

Rob, no, it should have included information from the developer on what these places are expected to rent/sell for. What makes you think any of those hundreds of working Santa Feans will be able to afford anything in this project? The last project this developer built is renting apartment…
