THE WEDGE NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS

From the Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Association – Where Every Story Has Three Sides

Letter to the Editor

Candidate Support for Lisa Peterson Bender
In and around Lowry Hill East, we are seeing a surge of new development. This is generally a welcome trend, especially when new projects fill in empty or underutilized lots on our commercial corridors. But if density increases without any corresponding improvement in our transit system, the new people that live in these projects will need to buy more cars and park them in already-congested neighborhoods to get around. We need our City Council to commit to making our transit system faster, more convenient, and more connected to the rest of the city so that we can enjoy the benefits of development while avoiding many of the drawbacks. One reason I support Lisa Bender for Ward 10 is because her urban planning background and commitment to transit issues makes her uniquely qualified to solve the development challenges facing our neighborhoods.
