Letters to the Editor: July 15, 2013

(Continued)

I suggest the Planning Board take another look at the Latinville proposal. If it still decides to approve his proposal, then as a condition of that approval, it might insist that Mr. Latinville include a contractual percentage — perhaps 10 percent — of the constructed units as “affordable.”

The cost of construction is basically the same for upscale and affordable units; only the so-called amenities will differentiate them.

This will mean somewhat smaller profit for Mr. Latinvville, but then he’ll have the satisfaction of having contributed something of lasting benefit to his community.
