Editor:

In regard to "Alameda Landing Tax Picture Shaping Up," Feb. 6, this is appropriate. There is no benefit to the vast majority of Alameda residents to have these new homes built, especially given the limited access to and from the Island. So, the new property owners, not the rest of Alameda residents, should fund the improvements.

By the way, these districts fall under the Mello-Roos act.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mello-Roos.
