I have to disagree with the "Yes, to affordable housing" [Our Views, Viewpoints, July 18]. I just moved back to Oak Park after 35 years. I'm all for diversity. When homeowners pay very high taxes, they expect safety and good schools. If the Oak Park/Van Buren proposed townhouses have affordable housing, they need occupancy limits. I want to walk safely without feeling menaced by thugs. I don't want to subsidize families when I struggle to support myself. I support diversity of like-minded people of any race or religion, people who work hard and treat others with respect.
