BRADY PUNCH

Who's Placentia Mayor Scott Brady to decide that a mostly generations-old residential community needs to be "livened up"? [Gustavo Arellano's "A Very Brady Scandal," Nov. 14]. Would a railroad station with all-night transients be better? It has been my experience that redevelopment means money in the pocket of developers, often as gifts, ahem, enhancements from local government that does little or nothing for the citizens and taxpayers who are already there. Oh, they'll probably talk about an affordable housing element, but affordable for whom? Probably not for those who are forced out. New businesses? Most likely big national and/or international chains for enticing yuppies from out of town. What's wrong with the businesses there now? Nothing, except that they are small, family-owned enterprises for the most part, and catering to a mostly local clientele.
