It is so hard to explain this to the neighborhood associations. This was always going to happen and now they have lost an opportunity to help shape the development.

I'm a bit confused over how big of a deal this development has become. It seems that the main concern is parking ... but it has been said often, that the people moving into this building would likely not be car owners.

I also share the community’s concerns over parking.


Whether people like it or not, a by-product of a growing city (both in population and value) is that there will be less free public parking.

That sucks, but at the same time, space is scarce and free public parking ain't a right.

How in the world did the city get hammered in court on the micro unit project. I don't get it, if Rolando signed the contract with Rushman and supported the project, why is he now leading the charge in the city council to continue to fight the developers.


The irony is that when the Mayor first met with the Van Vorst Park Neighborhood Association, he explained that the city was hesitant to get involved as it could potentially be a big liability in litigation costs and that the City Counsel determined their case was not that strong. The VVPNA did not relent and eventually the Mayor sided with them. Lo and behold- this happened. Hopefully some sort of compromise is possible.
