Letter To The Editor: Time For Action Plan On Housing

Los Alamos

The recent article covering the report on housing needs in Los Alamo County raises two significant questions in my mind.

First, my wife and I have been acutely aware of the housing crisis in this county, caused by the lack of available land, since we first arrived over three decades ago. The question is: Why are we still paying for studies and surveys to tell us what we already know?

Second, since the DOE and LA County are the primary holders of land for development, and since they are two of the entities most vocal about the need for new housing, etc., why have they not (long ago) done something to ameliorate the situation?

I would much rather attend a meeting in which the action plan is presented than another meeting in which we are told something we have known for over 30 years.
