  1. For anyone interested in housing decisions who wants their voices to be heard, this is an important chance. There are safety, parking, and utility concerns with increasing density in single family neighborhoods with 3-4 unit dwellings. Quiet streets with children and people walking will be at more risk with the increased traffic, and expensive upgrades to the utilities may need to be made.

    The simple decision is to only allow 3-4 unit buildings within certain distances of major roadways, where the traffic impact will be less pronounced, and the utility needs will be reduced.
