Letter: Seniors don’t want more rental options



I’d like to address the article regarding the building of accessory units in Carmel. I think the city has no understanding at all of what seniors are looking for! Why on earth would we want more rentals? There are rentals all over the city — way too many!

Seniors want to use the equity in their homes and pay cash for affordable, downsized, one-level retirement homes. We don’t want to rent on fixed incomes! Accessory dwelling units do not provide rent control. It only helps the people that own the property they are being built on with additional income for that homeowner and no benefit for a retiree.

So many cities have zero lot line ranch communities. Why can’t we come up with that?
