Re: SG-W:/ North Main/Bluffs



Peter,

I am not Tina, however I thought I'd make a short remark about the new
market concept.

To move this development out of the proposed Heritage Park area of
Pittsfield Township is a wonderful idea.  However to move this one or two
miles down the road isn't the answer.  The residents of Pittsfield would
still be faced with the same problems associated with a development of this
size (traffic, schools, sewer, etc.,).  I believe that the real answer is to
move Newmarket into a highly urbanized area in need of renovation.  This
type of development could be used to restore areas of Detroit or Ypsilanti.

As for the airport...I could see a number of great uses for the land and
would love to see much if not all the airport functions moved to Willow Run.
However as a neighbor of the AA Airport, I see the current state of the
airport as far preferable to filling this land with more subdivisions (maybe
something forever green!).
