I appreciate Bill Bauer’s column (“City Council approves future slum,” My Write, April 15) because I am one of the residents who asked the City Council to demand that the planning staff report the true density of the development proposed to replace Village Trailer Park. When it came out at the last council meeting that city staff had ignored the Municipal Code by calculating a new road into the floor area ratio for this project, Councilmembers Pam O’Connor, Bob Holbrook, Terry O’Day and Gleam Davis didn’t seem to care. The pro-development council members provided the four votes needed to approve the nightmarish project. I guess council could just vote to change the Municipal Code to legitimize having violated it.
