I have a comment about "Let rationality govern development in Elwood" [Editorial, May 29], regarding The Seasons at Elwood development.

Contrary to the editorial's support for The Seasons, what Long Island needs is affordable over-55 housing developments, not another luxury condominium complex. Ever-increasing taxes and utility rates are making home ownership a nightmare rather than the dream it used to be.

A middle-class development would meet the needs of many of us who want to stay here but find it increasingly difficult to do so.
