Our thanks to Daniel Lauber for documenting what common sense has been telling us for some time that, due to poor decision-making on the part of local government, the village has become unaffordable and unacceptably congested [New housing out of reach: What’s a village to do? Viewpoints, Oct. 10]. Many Oak Park residents saw these problems coming and protested overdevelopment before the Vantage, Emerson and Albion were built, but our elected officials would not listen.
