I am not talking about the Ramada, Taxpayer, nor do I care what you as an individual are bothered or not bothered about about.
Yes, you do care or we wouldn't be having these discussions.
I am talking about the future and those who inherit what we do - our children, grandchildren and beyond.
I do care about what the future holds for my kids. My kids will inherit the house, it will be fully paid for and if they decide to stay in the city and New York they will hopefully be able to afford to do so with a much broader tax base.
Hopefully my kids won't be still paying the debt that has been accrued due to moving Routes 5&20 to make room for devlopment like we are still doing now.
You can be as sarcastic as you like, and you seem to love being sarcastic.
Thank you and yes.
teh fact remains that with offices and with living spaces comes additional stress on the environment and the surroundings. What is tolerable now with the Ramada would increase many fold with residential area and with office buildings.
Wouldn't the so called additional stress be created on the environment no matter where new development took place? The colleges aren't going to fully support this city the way they should so there isn't really alot of options.
Look to the future. That area is a great asset to this area as a whole. Let it remain for development in a green and pleasant environmentally friendly place, i.e., gardens, nature park, etc.
I am looking towards the future. All but 5 acres will be preserved as a park, with an addition of a public beach/swimming area and marina. The walking/bicycling paths will still be maintained. We are not losing what we have now. What we have now will see a much needed enhancement of the area.
I hope for your own sake, that once in a while you have a pleasant thought, or give a smile to someone.
Please, don't worry about my sake, worry about you. I am a pleasant and positive person. Who knows, maybe our paths have crossed and I did pass along a smile. But thank you for your concern.
