A Nashville Charrette contributor drew a similar conclusion last November:
the plan needs more work before it moves ahead, according to Wallace and Janice Lampley of the Charlotte Park Neighborhood Association.
"You can do the math and see that there is no way that this area and the roads could handle this type of dense development," the Lampleys wrote in an email to Metro officials.
It is going to have tough access particularly if they do not purchase the funeral home which blocks the signalized intersection. They don't have a lot of options. As for the development itself, it would seem Seaside and the Pearl District are two different animals. I wonder which it will be.
However, a H20 proponent, who writes as if s/he is connected to the project, lobbied readers of the Charrette to turn out in force last week to support the development at a Planning Commission meeting.
Not surprisingly, the proponent had joined the Charrette the same day he wrote the invitation. That's bad form.
I'll be interested to see Paige's response to the public meeting. Will H20 consider public feedback or just try to convert neighbors to their concept?
