The Proposal

15% is "affordable"
A recent email suggested that this was an affordable housing project. A percentage will be "affordable" I think it is 15%, but the rest will be far from what most of us consider affordable. I want to be sure to dispel any past rumors that this will be subsidized housing, it will not be. (Let me say that I would be happy if it was "affordable" housing built by a non-profit developer..they have built some of the most attractive stuff in our city and I'm sure some of our kids would welcome it.)

When the 7-11 was built, the neighborhood protested what we felt was an inappropriate use, feeling the use of the land should be residential.

The notification made was to 1000 feet away when often only 300 is required. The city and the developer have gone beyond the minimum noticing, partly because I urged them to do so since a large area feels
"ownership" of this corner.
