Yes, This Is Class Warfare

Todd Reed (Letters 3/24) claims Eugene’s proposals to open up single-family home zoning, as required by HB 2001, will result in 42-foot apartment buildings whose renters will park on the street. Horrors! My heart just bleeds for this privileged middle-class homeowner who will be forced to live with renters in his neighborhood.

Nowhere in his letter is the slightest awareness that Eugene is in a rental housing crisis, resulting in a homelessness crisis. All he wants to do is keep his cozy neighborhood the same, by keeping us out.

I actually hope all his catastrophic expectations come true, although I doubt it. This is just class warfare. They’ve had their day, and that day has passed. NIMBYs need to shut up and get the hell out of our way.
