Room for 30 Cars
We're posting this now -- two days before the community meeting on redevelopment plans for the next door Shoreland Hotel -- because the only real objections to MAC Property's plans for the Shoreland have come from residents of this building, which we estimate to be occupied by about 20 households.
Those objections have been unusually self-interested, even for Hyde Park. In essence, they amount to this: you can't redevelop the Shoreland unless you promise us more and better parking, something which we've never had, and something which no one owes us.
Even though we have this nice big lawn out back with nothing on it but a swing set for the two times a year our grandchildren come to visit.
Sounds like a fair deal, no? An additional perk for 20 households vs. an obvious benefit for all of Hyde Park.
Support MAC's plans for Shoreland redevelopment, and support a great deal for ALL of Hyde Park.
