Why sacrifice Berkeley for sprawl?

To the Editor: 


Darcy Morrison's letter (Forum, Oct. 7) on so called “smart growth” hits the nail on the head. Densifying Berkeley will not minimize outlying tract developments. It will probably make our transportation problems even worse, and will do little to increase the stock of affordable housing. Why sacrifice Berkeley? We are doing our share to resolve these problems, but Berkeley is a small player in the overall region.
