BJ’s and apartment housing

August 2, 2007

This city’s effort to keep people out by telling potential developers that we can’t accept new housing because the people moving into the city might have children who will need to go the public schools is all wet.

This city cannot survive without growth. On the other hand, the $65 million BJ’s development proposal could stand on its own, without the apartment housing. However the developer wants the right to build housing here.

What are we to do, build a new cemetery where the apartment housing would go. Turn the land into a private storage facility – would that be better? How about making it a parking lot or just keeping it a useless, ugly junk yard. Would that eb better than a $65 million development.

    I just can not believe the traffic problems that will occur at the BJ’s site were not addressed more fully. One Revere City Councillor was quoted as saying there would not be any additional traffic. Is he living on this planet? Squire Rd is a nightmare at certain times of the day now. I can just imagine it in the future. Of course some of these pols will be long gone by then. Why weren’t our city councillors more agressive for senior citizen housing instead of just apartments? I just think more time should have been spent on the issue and more benefits should have been fought for the public.
