    I think this is a bad idea for several reasons, most notably the added traffic to a notorious intersection (Rt 1 and Cherry Hill). Has the city taken a position on this?

  2. Chris

    Autoville into Cherry Hill is already pretty bad from a traffic management standpoint. Will there by any updates to it, or the Cherry Hill area between Rte 1 and Home Depot in order to accommodate the increased residents?

  3. Michael Ellis

    Destroying biodiverse Paint Branch riparian forest behind Mazza GradMarc, this is absolutely tragic to our watershed and parkland, the project and the traffic this will bring is not good for our community.

  4. Donald Hays

    This seems like more urban sprawl and no the direction our town should head. Between the tree loss (probably over 100 heritage trees), already overutilized roads, and lack of public transit it’s difficult to imagine a worse idea/location.
