Re "McKinley plan draws two crowds" (Our Region, April 22): The current plan for McKinley Village intends to shift the problem of a risky real estate purchase to the community of East Sacramento. The developers bought an awkward strip of land without direct car access. They insist building a highway exit or Alhambra Street entrance makes the development too costly.

It's time they face the facts: they made a bad investment. Why should the safety and well-being of existing residents be compromised for their profits alone? I urge the City Council to reject their plan and insist any future development include proper access.
