Asphalt ocean best we can do?
A parking lot? Not just a little pay lot. Not even just a parking structure. An ocean of asphalt for 5,822 cars on the former General Motors transmission plant property. Can you imagine this in your backyard?
Is this the best Windsor can do with a massive brownfield lot smack in the middle of Walkerville, one of the city’s most vibrant areas?
When will residents have enough of this perverse urban planning? There is more pavement on our otherwise gorgeous waterfront than grass, trees and garden.
A huge area is being paved over for a hospital that is further away from the greatest number of people it serves and will actually serve fewer of them than existing hospitals do now. There are asphalt roads running through our parks.
We have a scrapyard in the middle of our city. And we can’t even figure out how to share roads with cyclists.
And now, a giant parking lot? Does anyone else feel like screaming? Or moving?
