Too Many Huge Developments In Santa Monica: Letter To The Editor

Letter To The Editor

Dear Editor,

I am a loyal reader of The Mirror and have been for many years. There is no better way to keep up to date on what is happening in Santa Monica.

However, I am getting angrier and angrier at the issue of development in our city. Not a week goes by when The Mirror's cover story is about YET ANOTHER huge development.

As a long time resident I have seen this city go from a sleepy little town to an exciting place to live to a tourist trap to an over-developed, over trafficked, apartment-heavy metropolis.

Pretty soon there will be no place for residents to go to accomplish mundane, every day chores.

Is there only ONE POINT of view in this city? Does no one really care what is happening? Perhaps our residents will rise up and vote new people into the city council.

Maybe that will help stop this rampant development.
