Question Title

* 5. A portion of the site will be protected for public open space.  What do you think the open space should be used for?

Active Park/Open Space (This includes uses such as a tot lot, ball fields, soccer fields, etc.) Mix of Active and Passive uses (There could be a tot-lot and some nature trails, we should plan for both on this site.) Passive Park/Open Space (There could be nature trails, but otherwise should be nature area, wetland protection and enhancement, woodland area, etc.)
i We adjusted the number you entered based on the slider’s scale.

Question Title

* 6. An important consideration of the ordinance is determining how much, if any, of the City's resources should be invested in protecting the land as open space. Are you interested in the City exploring ways to put its resources into protecting this area?

Question Title

* 7. How important is protection of this area for open space (active or passive) to you? How much of the land should the City aim to protect for open space in its new ordinance?

As much as possible. Balance - some protection, some development. None - we need more development, not more open space.
i We adjusted the number you entered based on the slider’s scale.

Question Title

* 8. There are trade-offs the City must consider with how to best protect a portion of this property for open space.  One approach is for the City to permit more density on the developed portion of the site (which may result in taller buildings up to 5 stories) but in exchange a larger portion of the site could be protected into perpetuity as open space.  How do you feel about this approach?
