Editor:

Thanks to Ron Goldman for his comments about overdevelopment in Santa Monica (“Developers taking over,” Letters to the Editor, Sept. 20).

Massive buildings have created bloated corridors, with no regard for the surrounding scale of the neighborhoods. Check out the high-rise at Lincoln Boulevard and Broadway, or Fifth Street and Arizona Avenue.

We now have not only traffic gridlock, but ugly density. Our small sea-side city deserves better. Shame on the City Council for allowing this to happen.
