Re: 100-unit workforce housing village proposed adjacent to Lee Vining near Mono Lake and Yosemite National Park

The Tioga Inn is the name for the full build-out plan for the project that is currently best known as the Mobil-mart/Whoa Nellie Deli and gas station above the intersection of Highway 120 and Highway 395 just south of Lee Vining. This project has the potential to significantly change the community of Lee Vining, and could double its population. During this open public comment period every opinion and concern matters—people who live in, visit, or know Lee Vining are all encouraged to submit a comment letter.

What is a "workforce housing village" ? A village for....workers? As opposed to a tourist hotel? And what "workers" would that be? Yosemite workers, 150 of them?
Down near the bottom of the mow know log article it cites some of the text from the proposed amendment, including this sentence:

"Proposed Tioga Inn Specific Amendment #3 has a primary goal of facilitating the construction of up to 100 workforce housing units with up to 150 bedrooms to accommodate employees of the previously approved hotel and full-service restaurant."

So the housing would be for the workers at the yet-to-be-built hotel and restaurant.
Housing for workers on its face is a very good, long-overdue idea. I am just not too sure about that location. The downside of course, if the ideal is nixed, will it take another 20-25 years to address the problem?
