Re "Supervisors OK 2,700-acre plan at Cordova Hills" (Page A1, Jan. 30): Is Phil Serna the only Sacramento County supervisor who understands the meaning of sustainable and smart growth? It's amazing that the other members of the board voted to approve Cordova Hills, despite the project's obvious sprawl-inducing consequences and the abundance of other housing options in more appropriate areas of the county.
Whether or not a college campus is in the cards, the project defies reality. A third-rate campus hardly justifies this inefficient development.
Permit this resident of the larger region to note that this is a case of atrocious planning. It's a shame that the majority of the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors is so divorced from smart decision making.
