Mazant and Royal St development, 70117
Comments: This project presents a number of serious concerns for the neighborhood.
1) we do not need more new housing, we need abandoned housing to be renovated.
2) this a predominantly 1-2 story neighborhood with mostly small buildings. A large development will grossly impact the look and feel of the neighborhood.
3) there are very few open green spaces in the neighborhood and this is taking away a beautiful one. Additionally, this space has a number of beautiful old oak trees that would likely be destroyed or at least inaccessible to the rest of the community if the block is turned into a large housing development.
Thanks for your consideration.
