The broader issue is that cities need to have sites for at least somewhat mildly undesirable activities that are necessary for them to function. We have to have garages for garbage trucks and buses, sites to park UPS trucks, places to store salt for snow removal, gas stations, etc. Often city planning agencies don't give enough attention to these needs and the desirable goal of siting them strategicly around town. Neighborhood groups underestimate the ability to hide and mitigate the impact of these facilities in new construction. Well functioning cities cannot be composed of 100% walkable neighborhoods and not every inch of waterfront can be devoted to parkland and biking trails.
