Re "Supervisors OK 2,700-acre plan at Cordova Hills" (Page A1, Jan. 30) and "County should say 'no' to unripe Cordova Hills" (Editorials, Jan. 29): Hurray for Supervisor Phil Serna for being a thoughtful representative of his constituents and a protector of our county's future.
I watched Mike McKeever, executive director of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, tell the supervisors in a very politically correct and deferential way what a bad idea this development proposal was for many reasons, and still four supervisors voted to approve it.
Sacramento County already has a glut of housing, and thousands more units already approved. With this decision, the county is in a worse place for other future developments and at risk of worse air quality. Serna and The Bee's editorial board deserve thanks for being level-headed protectors of our environment. It's too bad four elected representatives couldn't have joined in a reasonable vote.
