Letter to the editor: Low-density housing is good for Encinitas


The last thing Encinitas needs is more “affordable housing,” which is a keyword for more apartment complexes and condos. Southern California already has way too much traffic and a lack of water, so why would we want to cram more people into an already overcrowded city?

“McMansions” situated on larger parcels are a much better option than building apartment complexes and condos. For instance, the lower-density housing development on Lake Drive was a much better idea than the other option of cramming in many units.

Less density and larger houses also increases the value of existing homes. The neighborhood and surrounding areas will change for the better.
