How Far to St. Vincents Senior Housing?
Join me on a trip from Marinwood Plaza (4 minutes) to the site of St. Vincents senior housing that is proposed for 240 units. It is located along the SMART railroad tracks. The whistle will blow every 15 minutes from 5AM daily. It is quite a walk with armload of groceries.
We welcome housing that represents wise land use and responsibility. Unfortunately, the remote location of this project (like the Grady Ranch) proposal belongs in the "What the heck are they thinking?" category. It is high density sprawl with none of the accessibility to shopping, transportation and jobs.
Is this "smart" planning? Our seniors deserve better.
