Low-cost housing at Stanford? New York Thwea Service STANFORD, Calif. - Stan- IdfH University, to the sur- pris» of some of its neighbors and the irritation of others, has announced that it is con* sidering construction of low- income housing on its plush StitiUrban campus. The university was urged to biifld for low and moderate* inc5me groups by a special committee appointed to make a comprehensive study of its housing policies. The 15-man committee, headed by history professor Gordon Wright, recently delivered ite report and recommendations to University President Kenneth S. Pitzer. The report called for the phased development of between 600 and 2,000 units of housing for poor and marginal-income families. It suggested that the university begin construction "at the earliest possible date." In the exclusive suburban area of the San Francisco Peninsula around Stanford, the news drew a mixed reaction. "I'm shocked," a longtime resident of Palo Alto, the wealthy community adjacent to Stanford, said. Another Stanford resident said that he didn't like the idea and guessed that "the people of Palo Alto aren't going to like it and a lot of Stanford people are not going to like it either." In making its proposal, the committee pointed out that construction of new housing in the Stanford area "has lagged far behind community needs." It warned that low and moderate-income families were being squeezed out of the area and that "the exclusion of minorities was continuing at the same time." Wright said that the committee suggested that any housing built for the poor be integrated with student and faculty housing on the campus. He said that he visualized the housing being racially mixed. Palo Alto, the community closest to the university, has few nonwhite residents. However, just across the Bayshore Freeway is the community of East Palo Alto, a development that is almost entirely black. Aside from East Palo Alto, though, there are few areas along the peninsula where low-income groups are able to obtain housing because of the prohibitive cost. Thus, Wright said, many persons employed by the university must make long commutes because they cannot obtain adequate housing in the Stanford area. At present there is no public housing in the area. Those who advocate it say that construction has been . prevented largely because of a state law that requires approval by referendum m the community where the housing is to be constructed. Wright pointed out that the decision tp urge Stanford to build for low and moderate- income groups was influenced by the fact that the school has the largest tract of available land on the peninsula. The Stanford campus has some 9,000 acres of land.
