    Hopefully Brianne Nadeau will not be there with her opinion since it is not in her Ward

    The key word is “community.” Can’t wait to have the bus loads of activities descend on or neighborhood to tell us what is best. Most nearby residents want market rate housing. Is DV really going to spend $100 million of it’s affordable housing fund in Ward 4 while the other neighborhood get nothing? Don’t think so.

    During the time allotted for public comment, I hope the ANCs ask commenters to identify themselves by name and address, or at the very minimum, by ward and SMD of residence. Comments from neighbors who live in the immediate vicinity of this huge project should be given considerably more weight than activists from outside the neighborhood whose lives will not be impacted by the development.

    There must be a way to balance the conversation so that the voices of those of us who legitimately live and spend our lives here aren’t drowned out by people don’t. We live, work, spend money, pay taxes, and work tirelessly to sustain the best parts and improve the other parts of the Community here.

    We should have the strongest voice in what happens next, because we will be responsible for sustaining it long after the activists and the developers have left.
