This actually is in response to the Update I just received. What additional information was requested by the Planing Board and is there a public record of that? I can check with the Planning Board but thought I would check with FoxRock first.

Adding retail will serve to invite more people and traffic into the area.

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?

i think 598 units is too many for that area. I think 400 is plenty. I also would like to see it rented by 55+ residents, assisting living, and low income seniors. I don't want to see children because the area schools are over crowded now. I am thankful there will be no traffic emptying on Euclid Ave but people will be able to go out that way.

How many units do you anticipate? How many bedrooms will be in each unit? How many parking spaces are going to be designated for each unit and where will they be? Where will overflow parking and guest parking be located? How have you calculated the number of guest parking and overflow parking spaces you will need without affecting the surrounding neighborhoods?
