Don't cover up the canal! A new bridge across the canal would be only for show - it would not shorten anyone's walking time by even a full minute - so it would be better not to divide the canal in two. For the same reason, initiatives that partially fill in the canal, like a floating restaurant, should be avoided. Most cities (look at Providence, for example) these days are doing the opposite, enhancing the beauty of the city by uncovering the rivers that they had once paved over.

Pre-canned answers in the previous questions limit an open dialogue with helpful responses. There was no mention of a restaurant as an option. The area doesn't need more coffee shops, a supermarket nor a convenience store.

Current list of community benefits doesn't balance with the large PUD upsizing especially when there is no housing component. Please re-evaluate to provide a better balance.

While Cambridge favors permanent, dominant playgrounds, I would hope the city would opt for something like a splash pad or something cheap and flexible like a ropes course (example: https://www.instagram.com/parkup.tw/) that everyone could enjoy. The current playgrounds favor small children and do little to inspire wonder. I don't think the city has given children enough credit for running around, and I hope if a permanent playground is included that it will be much smaller than the ones that take up all of the open space in mid-Cambridge.

I completely agree. More development means a great need for more housing in the immediate area not relegated elsewhere.
