Perhaps the appellant for this development (and the thousands of others units planned nearby) would better spend their time using this development as trigger and to build the coalition/case to actually address the issues mentioned. Example: stop signs at all intersections and a controlled intersection at Macleod and 18th?So kind of a good news / bad news situation. First, the good:
The DP plans are posted online if you want to see more details about this project:
The bad: They are online because the project is being appealed:
From the appeal report:
I do hereby appeal the decision of the Subdivision/Development Authority for the following reasons (Attach a separate page if required): We believe strongly that this development will create an extremely unsafe pedestrian and traffic situation, as well add the already congested parking situation, along 18th Avenue SE and at the corner of 18th Avenue south east and Macleod Trail southbound. Having lived in the area for over 5 years we are well aware of the current lack of street parking along 18th Avenue SE, west of Macleod southbound, and how 18th Ave already turns into a single lane roadway when student are being dropped of for school. Hundreds of student walk along 18 Ave, and that corner with Macleod, every school day morning, as do thousands of attendees to events at the Saddledome and Stampede grounds. We will detail the full extent of our concerns, along with copies of letters previously sent to City Planning expressing our fears and concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Development is not the problem here, lack of development is.
