If it were up to the YIMBY folks housing would consist of stack and pack with a local Commissar in charge of who sleeps where. Those trying to build a barn for their horses would be referred to as which unwoke folks.

Wish they (the YIMBYS) would spend more of their time in Atherton and leave other nearby towns alone. Although rich people need to live somewhere too. Oh, and also have plenty of acres of space to ride horses.

Depends what Atherton is saying yes to. If, for example, they want to repurpose their last proposal for building up lots on bay rd and Ringwood, the hit will be to Menlo Park residents along bay rd. , not to Atherton. Let’s see those Athertonians in favor, place the housing in an area that is not already being pig-piled on. If you’re really in favor, let’s see you put some real skin in the game - maybe one of those horse areas?
