I don't know why so many people are reacting as if evil developers are taking over the Salida area and are going to ruin it. Those same developers will be providing lots of money and benefits for the area.
Quality of life has everything to do with where you live, work and play. The plans for Salida look to improve all three. It will provide additional housing options -- and while so many people are against the housing part of the plan, the money generated from those homes will go toward making the entire community a better place. Where else are we going to get the money to do these things?
