Meanwhile, the spin machine has begun. Those neighborhoods? Just a bunch of NIMBYs who don't want density, and this is all about density.
No, its not.
Density is needed. These neighborhoods know that--we all know that.
This is about questions. Like whether City Council is going to force this developer to spend the money to meet the Tier 1 and Tier 2 requirements, and the Heritage Tree Ordinance. Its about asking why City Council keeps waiving the rules for big companies, even if it means a bigger tax burden for everybody else.
Maybe we should stand up with these neighborhoods and start asking questions too.
