There are a number of comments that community involvement is necessary to address the State requirements for more housing in Atherton. One substantial barrier to greater community involvement is that the zoom meetings don't have the sound quality for participation of people not present in the Town Hall. I have tried to attend two meetings, but couldn't hear the comments and questions of people not on microphones. The people who responded did not bother to repeat the comments or questions for those not in the room. There is no community awareness, so it's not surprising there is next to no community participation. This doesn't bode well for participation needed to come to solid solutions to the housing mandate.
