Agree - my parking concern was more on behalf of the new tenants (40 new housing units vying for 23 garage spaces) and existing residents who have to park on the street now, with less competition.

I disagree about the current location of Talbot Ave in front of the church being used only by commuters. I see the opposite happening - during the day it's generally empty with plenty of on-street parking along Talbot, but at night it begins to fill up. Some nights the street is nearly full, but I've never had an issue getting on-street parking in the general area either time. If we want to consider resident parking as has been suggested, I'd recommend implementing evening/overnight hours with visitor parking spaces mixed in.

If resident parking is implemented, it would make sense to ensure the retail/community space gets some designated time-limit spaces in front of the building.

When do you plan to hold the abutters meeting? And have you done a shadow study?

I live directly opposite on Talbot, and I am most concerned about parking (we may be near public transportation, but 40 units needs more than 23 spaces), sunlight (a 5 story building on the Talbot side will block sunlight to the opposite side of the street), and trash from whatever business goes in. Would love a good coffee shop, but please put some public trash cans on the street if you go the coffee shop / grocery store route.

I like the idea of coffeeshops and small groceries, but it seems that those generate so much trash and we need less of that around the neighborhood.

I like the idea of coffeeshops and small groceries, but it seems that those generate so much trash and we need less of that around the neighborhood. So, small office space would be fine.
