‘Density is an amenity itself’

20110919-063602.jpg

Leslie Miller, Chair of the Planning Commission, said it well, “density itself is an amenity.” An she and A few others starting making some great points.

When Katherine Mackinnon said she “worked with developers” there was a big groan from the crowd. So far we haven’t heard anything about “developer profits” or any specific bashing of Hugh Sisley, but the crowd clearly has the anti-developer bent.

And the comments continue to hammer on the point that this is a decision for people in Roosevelt to make, not anyone else’s.

The other theme is all about “how much we’re taking,” like density is medicine or toxic waste. But, as Miller points out, density is good all by itself.
