Consider impact of First Street Park
Although the proposed First Street park looks attractive initially, I do have concerns regarding this development. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see the plans when they were on display. However, my understanding was that underground parking would replace the existing spaces and a green open area would create the park.
The local impact: loss of parking for an indeterminate period during construction; escalation of noise; additional congestion if the park becomes a site for outdoor daytime and evening events; and need for a higher level of security at night.
