Dear editor: There has been an opinion piece and several letters in the COURIER recently bemoaning the changing landscape in the Village that many of us have lived in for decades.
Dear editor: I am so sorry that there has been a spread of misinformation and a fearful exaggeration of the impact on our part of town of the development of Larkin Place on Harrison Ave.
Dear editor: Having attended countless school board meetings, we’ve lost track of the number of times the board has refused to openly discuss an issue or acknowledge public comment.
Dear editor: I am enclosing with this my “Senior” subscription renewal, and also my first contribution to the COURIER as a non-profit. I would not want to be without the COURIER!
On February 5th, 2022, at the Claremont City Council’s Strategic Planning Meeting, the city council named anti-racism and anti-discrimination as a priority for the city.
The longstanding, severely constraining process of providing affordable housing across the socioeconomic spectrum in Claremont is replete with growth restrictive policies, which, when combined, effectively serve as redlines against the economic feasibility of developing low income housing for either sale or lease.
These past few years, I have been a strong proponent of the development of Village South. I saw it as a way to bring more affordable, right-sized, transit-oriented development with sustainable solutions to a blighted downtown area.
