      These people are taxpayers, and they have the right to oppose the project publically, and to pursue their own best interests.

    With all due respect Ray I resided in the area where Meadows Condominiums were built and we had the same concerns about your project. Not only regarding density but bringing down the value of our single family dwelling. We relented and moved. You sir are residing in an area that contains a tract of land that is prime for development. There is a significant need for affordable housing and the Blackmarsh Road area is the target. Welcome to the jungle

      It would almost be worth your time to attend the meeting and inform the NIMBYs that they are a bunch of hypocrites. Their little village is not exactly wide-open-spaces either!

    I wish the city would install tole booths along the roads that WE city tax payers are paying for. All the construction of new roads and highways for who??? People from out of the city should be contributing something towards the cost of all of this.

      Elizabeth, who exactly do you think is keeping all the businesses in town afloat? Are all the townies renting the hotel rooms in St. John's? Are you guys renting all the cars, buying all the groceries, eating in all the restaurants, etc... There is a reason all the big stores on Torbay Road and Kelsey Drive are located with easy access to the highway. It's because half their sales are from out of town, and these businesses pay city taxes.

      You mean the road that the Provincial Government is paying for and that is fully contained within the City limits of St. John's. You should get your facts straight.

      Elizabeth, I have no problems with what you are suggesting, provided you are prepared to pay your share for roads you drive on that aren't in St. John's.

    St John's city council only cares about money. They don't give a hoot about the mess they make. I sometimes look around and marvel at the "plan" they have instituted in different parts of the city. There is no by-law (yet) which states that all of the houses in the city must be at most 10 feet apart!

    When is the Team Gushue highway instruction going to start again? This is the 2nd year now with no activity. Ran out of money?

    yeah, the traffic engineer/ planners have done a great job around the city, look at Stavanger as a shining example of a more recent well planned out area. I have the utmost confidence in their abilities
