Letter: Thankful for BMR units, but hoping for more

Thank Matt Matteson (developer of 26 town and single family homes at 389 El Camino Real in Menlo Park) for his insight.

So many renters on the Peninsula cannot afford to pay the high rents. We are being pushed out of the Bay Area.

It's very depressing to not even afford to buy. I've been here since the 1960s and I can't afford it here much longer. Three (below-market-rate) units are not enough to help, but Mr. Matteson has the right idea.

I'll keep praying for a miracle.
