The town council does NOT speak for me then.

Woodside should allow a limited amount of housing and do their part.

Adding a few houses, in-law units, etc in our large rural community is not going to change the rural feel in this relatively undeveloped space. It's just a smoke-screen to keep out undesirables.

Do better woodside.

Sunny, You have a very odd interpretation of the word "few" used in your post.
The article says Woodside must add 328 units in the new RHNA cycle and SB9 allows for 4 units where 1 currently exists. How many is a few? 328, 528, 728, more?
The Town Council most certainly speaks for me!

Woodside is over 11 square miles.
A cycle is 8 years?

So to add 328 new units, Woodside needs to add ~ 41 units per year, which will need to be a combination of ADUs and residences. Woodside is has so much green space and so much ongoing construction as it is, that most of us will not notice 41 new units a year.

you do realize that 41 units in 11 square miles is less than 4 units per mile?

Imagine 2 are ADU and 2 are residences. Tripp Road alone has 4 new houses this past year.

That is not going to change Woodside from a rural community to a city or even suburb.

We have more more construction than that in town today though it's weighted to whole house renovations.
