Re: 400-unit seniors’ facility proposed, Feb. 9.
Besides the positive benefits of such a facility for the aging population and the employment opportunities, what is the benefit for the community by allowing this project in the area of Golf Links and Southcote roads in Ancaster?
Staff and support vehicles, as well as visitors, add higher volumes of traffic per day to this intersection. Operator Shannex’s limited traffic study (one day) finds a solution to fit — a roundabout. A three-storey facility in a residential neighbourhood is not respectful of the community. The facility and its purpose are good, however, the location, not so much.
