Here is a poster for the new project called the planning edge. I'll be hosting open sessions for 3 days getting ideas on how to better address the edge where new development meets the neighborhood. It's where the most anxiety lies with residents and frankly where the larger share of impacts can happen if not well examined, addressed and maintained.
However, through great up-front design, good policies, and a commitment to maintaining good features over the long haul, we can make sure the new development is a great neighbor. And if I sound confident, it's because I was one of those anxious neighbors who saw a big project become one of the best examples of how to bring new density alongside established neighborhoods. It also became a neighborhood where families like mine can no longer afford to live next to great new places.
