    Yep. People care about their neighborhoods and their city.

    Who knew? ;)

    If that’s the litmus test for caring about your neighborhood and city I’ll have to concede I won’t lose any sleep for failing it.

    No doubt you focus on the commercials.

    Everyone has their own specific interests and sub-interests. That doesn’t make them any less valid. Some people are pro-urban-planning and could care less about local theatre. Some people are pro-local-theatre and could care less about urban planning. It takes all types to make a nice robust experience for everyone.

    Except for those anti-everything people. Those people just plain suck. ;)

    Of course. I’m not saying it’s wrong to argue about this. To each their own. I’m just saying it surprises me. If people want to spend 22 pages arguing about local theatre, it would delight me to no end.

    I’m taking a bold stand against anti-everything people.

    As I said, argument here isn’t really about bikeability.

    I don’t think the issue here is bikabilty or walk ability of the store (you can certainly do that as its planned).

    If people are not walking or biking there, then how are people getting there? Cars? If so, why does it matter where the parking lot is?

    It sounds like a some of the supporters of the zero off-set want it to look urban even though they personally would be driving there. If everyone is driving there it defeats the purpose of an urban setup. While I agree that the commercial storefront on a street looks aesthetically pleasing, if people are going to drive there then you need a parking lot which may take up any space for apartments, condos, etc.

    Now that is an interesting observation.

    Simple solution: parking to the rear. Done and done.

    That’s crazy talk!

    No one is asking for a 4 story parking garage behind it with 2 or 3 stories of apartemtns/offices above – just the simple acknowledgement that this isn’t sawmill rd.

    Think Weiland Park Kroger. We already have an example of what should be done less than two miles away. Plenty of parking for the Rus’s of the world with an ease of access for cars and bikes. So simple…

    Go back.

    You going to bike or walk to this location? Cole might have a point; if you’re not, if you and others are going to drive there or just drive past then what does it matter where the parking lot is? Are you advocating for an ideal you yourself will not utilize?

    To be fair, I’ll likely drive to this location no matter where the parking lot is.

    Has anyone asked NRI or GE why a different configuation wasn’t chosen?

    Unless I missed someone posting an actual picture here, I don’t think anybody has seen what the configuration is. For all we know the parking lot and four outlots could be behind the store.
