PLANNING FOR OUR FUTURE

20 Apr

Neighborhood interest in this site continues to grow, however, it seems that little NEW information is forth coming. The FOR SALE sign remains at the now seeded site of a rumored high-rise rental or condominium building near the corner of Foster and Sheridan Roads but nothing more is known.

Someone recently suggested working as a community to place a height restriction on the property so that development in our area remains at a manageable level. This certainly represents a pro-active move to ensure that traffic, traffic accidents, and congestion levels remain stable in Edgewater.

As always, the point of this site is not to stop all development, but to instigate an open dialogue with developers and elected officials. The new grocery store is a great addition, however, that coupled with the 32 story planned residence building will create a tipping point at that intersection that we may not see for years until it’s too late and this site is already under construction and therefore at a point of no return.

Call the new Alderman or the Real Estate company. Let’s try and get the facts on this site!

As always feel free to share your thoughts with us!
