Re: “Sodam

Never had a bad meal here. And I've eaten here like 50 times.

Re: “Bike lane, trail projects receive state funding

Hallelujah! Now I won't be killed when biking on Elmwood between the river and Mt Hope! I will make it until at least South Avenue before my brains are splattered!

Re: “Bike boulevards for Rochester

It would be great if Elmwood Ave could be made safer for bicyclists. The 30MPH speed limit is totally ignored by most drivers and the shoulder is narrow.

Re: “City should turn down University Ave. project

"At what point does the density become too much?"

Walkscore.com gives 900 East Ave a score of 84. Pretty good. I moved here from DC where my place had a walk score of 94 so there is plenty of room to go.

"Has this part of the city's southeast area reached its apartment saturation point? "

There is actually a really easy way to tell when a neighborhood has reached its apartment saturation point. When people no longer want to pay $1500 a month to live in an apartment in the neighborhood and prices start falling because supply has soaked up the demand. Erie Harbor is charging high rents. Hickory Place is charging high rents. People clearly want to live in the East Ave area because rents are high. Adding more housing in that area will help more people live there and it will bring even more amenities to the area.

"It is encouraging that Morgan is willing to invest in the city. But the city has other properties that could be developed." Yes. Perhaps Morgan should build some luxury apartments on Wilkins St. However I think that street may have already reached its luxury apartment saturation point.

There are NIMBYs in every neighborhood. Every project will have some reason to be shot down because nothing should ever change because change is baaaad. I see opposition to this by neighborhood groups as complete NIMBYism. "I got mine, screw everyone else." And yes, ParkResident, it's the same self-centeredness as in Pittsford with the Mark IV project.
