To the Editor
In answer to David Snipper's recent letter to the editor about the San Pablo Avenue multi-use project I would offer the following:
z The public input that went into the West Berkeley Plan, the 1977 Master Plan, and the new Berkeley General Plan are being ignored by this project which ignores the policies and goals of those plans.
z The towering project in Emeryville opposite the Home Depot is just what the vast majority of neighbors don't want! Remember, Emeryville has never seen a development they didn't like,
z The perceived height of this building has not been reduced by moving the lofts, (really a fifth story), back by 5 feet.
z Those opposing this development want this property developed - but we want it to conform better with the community and with previously approved long range plans.
