Where will the parking garages be located?? Trash collection?? What about the neighbors on Colonial Drive.. 6 story building with a roof top terrace to look into my yard, why not put the larger building in the middle away from the neighborhoods. Traffic and the schools.. Lots of questions..

I think you need to answer a lot of questions before this project proceeds. Specifically: • What is the anticipated mix between assisted living/independent living/family units? You must have at least an idea of what you think is possible. • You mention 598 units, but what is the mix of studio/1 bedroom/2 bedroom/3 bedroom units? This can make a huge difference in the total expected. If all are 2 bedroom, that is another 1,196 people. Again, you must have some idea of what you want. • What is the target price for rents – is it high-end, moderate, affordable? Is there a mix of these types? Again, you must have some idea of how you want to target the market. • What about 40(b) – are there plans to ofr affordable units? If so, how many? • The traffic study cannot be correct. If you are planning 825 spaces, there is no way it will only generate 163 trips in the morning and 212 trips in the evening (numbers in the documents). Your own numbers estimate that 33% will use public transportation, so that leaves 549 cars that will be in use each day (66% of 825). • Have you considered the impact on the local schools? Since you did not specify your target market, it is hard to tell, but there must be at least an estimate of how many families will live there. Even if ¼ of the units are for families that is potentially 149 units with kids. Can Bernazzani handle another 149 or more schoolkids?
