Needs More Parking…

I noticed in the Council Agenda for the meeting upcoming on the 19th, that the “Proposed Acquisition” of 1024 Elsmere and 1030 Elsmere is planned to make way for another Erie Street parking lot.

The worse thing I can see about the demolition would be the loss of the huge mature tree in between the two properties. I would hope that the tree is saved in the mad rush to create a parking lot.

Here are a few overhead views of the property in question, note that directly acorss the street the same thing has already happened:

I have e-mailed both my councilors and made my views known about saving the tree. I’ll let you know what they say. Should you feel so inclined, a copy of the council agenda is below for easy reference. 🙂
