This letter only serves as a means to further the understanding of the serious impact on our community and the neighborhood surrounding the proposed building site located at Main Street and Alameda Avenue.
It is not intended to criticize Whole Foods Market, which I think is a fine food market, nor is it a detailed discussion of individuals, theoretical studies or site location. But rather a discussion of potential serious problems, their interface interrelationships and the extent of our City Council to properly analyze the potential serious problems.
We have inevitably developed an overlap of duties and a duplication of efforts and responsibilities between the developer and the community. It is an inefficient means of providing the council with the important facts the council and planning board can investigate, analyze and make sound decisions about.
