Pity. The majority of the Transportation Commission, like the council, is in bed with the developers. The project will create more jobs that it does housing and we call this progress?

Frugal,

Your comment is ridiculous and without any basis at all. It's just a cheap smear against good people who reached an educated conclusion that differs from your personal opinion. Your attack on them devalues the substance of your position.

it does cause more jobs than housing, with lots more offices on El Camino. These cause a lot of traffic and no sales tax revenue.
Even the Trans Commission did not recommend the project as is. They suggest some changes
