8 November: City Ave Mega Rezoning More Richard Kaufman Explicates the Problem

Righteous Democrat Hugh Gordon of Ardmore:

“The new zoning will permit the development of over 11 million square feet of office, residential and commercial development in the area.  Height limits have been lifted and density allowances have been increased.  Billed as fulfilling a vision of a car-free pedestrian oriented fun 14-hour live-work-play environment, the proposal fails adequately to address traffic issues (already a serious obstacle to economic growth in that corner of the Township), infrastructure burdens on the schools, fields, parks, playgrounds, and stormwater systems, and lacks any serious commitment to enhancing public transit availability in an area that is poorly served.”
