Jefferson Park history deserves preservation

I would like to thank Andrew Shepherd for his thoughtful column (Feb. 22 “”Council should oppose mini-dorms””) of support of the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association and its fight against group dwellings, the structures formerly known as mini-dorms. We need to preserve what little is left of our history and culture and this starts with protecting our remaining old neighborhoods. People (developers) should think twice about destroying things they cannot recreate. If there is a need for additional student housing it can certainly be built in a more efficient (denser) zone than R-1 or R-2 single family residential and it can be built in a more appropriate area. Thanks again for your support.

— Bob Schlanger, Jefferson Park resident and board member
