The RHNA requirements imposed upon every city should be abolished. The government should have no right to dictate how communities are developed. This should be left up to the residents/taxpayers of each community. We choose to live in areas because of the demographics in that area. How dare the government tell us that we need to change the composition of our community because of some whiny fringe groups who don't think it's fair that everyone can't afford to live wherever they want. The rest of us work hard, save our money, live responsibly, and move to where we can afford. Home ownership is NOT a RIGHT. Neither is living in any particular community. This must be changed.
