Strausser idea better than sliced bread,yessirree
Strausser's "Village Center" debuted unexpectedly at the PC meeting along with their reason for coming, to obtain a conditional use approval for a recreational facility. Gosh, the ex-mayor was in his full glory, slide show and everything. He certainly did a resounding job in Easton during his tenure. Why shouldn't we go with him now? Golly, he's going to move people with DISPOSABLE INCOME into " new urbanism" apartments (overtop quaint shoppes). Something us locals know nothing about. I sure am glad he came up the hill to educate us. Gee Whiz, there's just a couple a changes the PC/BoS would hafta make to the Cr district; like allowing skyscrapers(max 2 1/2 story residences now), allowing retail shoppes and apartments (a no-no now), allowing just a little bit HIGHER DENSITY (would rival Easton). Also, do parking lots qualify as open space (35% open space in CR performance)? I'm glad they came with an open mind.
