Letters to the Editor, Feb. 20 - 22

We need to get over that everyone needs a giant yard in every neighborhood and that small business cannot be mixed with residential.

With careful and strict planning of what can be built where, open space can be preserved and housing and business can serve us and not those with tons of money. Every time a local official responds to me that what a developer is doing is within the law and none of their business, my head explodes. Yet they freely to toss around terms like workforce housing and commercialization of neighborhoods. Why does each development have to be a little war, fought one at a time? My husband has spent hours and hours helping to fight each of these little wars.

If we hold our elected officials feet to fire and demand a real plan, we can change this dynamic.

EDITOR: In reading the article about our hospital joining forces with the University of California San Francisco (“Sonoma Hospital to Affiliate with UCSF,” Feb. 6) it gives me great hope that our Valley will soon be able to provide kidney dialysis for residents that currently must travel 40 miles (round trip), several times a week, to get their treatments. Some of these residents are in their 80s and 90s and I am sure the back and forth can be very taxing on their energy, time and finances (Uber, cabs, para-transit or, for the fortunate, friends).

If anyone from the hospital staff can address this issue, I’d be happy to know what the plan is.
