Letter to the Editor: Find a home first

Recent published letters, opinion pieces and editorials have mentioned Tacachale, a place one author, Kim Tanzer, identified as a "sprawling state-owned property," "served by existing infrastructure" and "located in the heart of east Gainesville." The thrust of this column and similar pieces is that this oasis would be better served by becoming a commercial/innovative center than the current use.

Tacachale is home to approximately 350 developmentally disabled citizens of this state...Big plans of commercial development, infill and land swap must first include what accommodations are to be provided the displaced. First find a home for the least of us.
