I live in the neighborhood and like this concept but have concerns. Does Dan or anyone else who was at the meeting last night know how the Giant and other existing business owners feel about this? They would probably take a big hit during the years of construction. Where would the entrances and exits from the underground parking for cars and pedistrians be, and would the parking be free? If it is not free or is too hard to access, the hit that the businesses take could be peramnant, even with the additional housing nearby.

Based on the drawings, the new park still appears to be pretty cut off from the surrounding areas. Right now there are three entrances for automobiles and pedestrians into Blair Plaza, and additional pedestrian entrances for Blair residents. The drawings appear to only have one more entrance to the site, which would go through the Blair property, which means it might not be public. Are there additional entrances I am missing or that aresn't in the drawing? Would it be a good thing or a bad thing if the new surface streets became popular with motorists passing through the area?
