I don’t see any evidence in the plans to support the billeted benefits on panel 02:From last night's Planning Board meeting, an update to the project proposed 204-unit residential project at 984 Spring Street.

I expect to see more of this style of development on the other side of the city border on the old Sable Oaks land.

This type of development has blighted so many cities across the country, it would be a shame to not expect developers to build to match their stated objectives. As is, those bullets should read,
