Development plan has too many units

This is in regards to the planned development of a complex off of Latimer for hundreds of condos and long term care facilities.

Dear Editor:

This is in regards to the planned development of a complex off of Latimer for hundreds of condos and long term care facilities.

I am glad the developer held the meeting on May 16.

I think this is nothing more than a development of far too many units, 270 units for sale and lease, and yes then they will eventually, maybe, have 60 to 80 long term care units or beds developed which will be nice, but it is simply a huge development complex being proposed until the guise of a health care facility of such for seniors.

The real estate people were already there ready to start selling the units and lining their pockets too.

The traffic that this construction will create and the traffic that will be with us forever after it is built is going to be unbelievable.

Solly Road is already a hazard with people walking up and down it and cars and trucks having to swerve to the other lane to avoid them, it is not good.

This is nothing more than a very large housing complex jammed into a bowl in the middle of lower town.

If and when this or any project on this piece of land moves forward,  they need to have access from the bottom, from Lakeshore and Gowans and Phillips.

Please be very cautious about this project.

The developer talked about traffic studies and other studies that had been done, means nothing to us as we have not seen anyone do any type of study.

This will also negatively affect our property values.

There were a lot of not very happy people at the meeting last night.

This project can be stopped by simply not rezoning the property from agricultural to high density housing.
