I enjoyed reading Craig Jones’ Open Forum letter in last Tuesday’s Daily Camera (“There’s no way to meet Boulder’s housing demand,” Jan. 24). However, I think he too quickly dismisses his suggestion of increasing business taxes to the point where many employers (would) move out. It makes a lot of sense to relocate businesses to places where their employees can afford to live. And having (my estimation) 5,000 managers commuting rather than 60,000 workers would greatly reduce Boulder’s traffic and parking problems — and maybe even reduce the presently unsatisfiable demands for affordable housing.
