No one is as affected by these changes as the people in my neighborhood, and we support the Wegmans proposals. The developers have met with the community and have offered sound solutions to "our" concerns. The parties against the Solo Cup have not spoken to me and therefore do not speak for me.
Mr. Oliver's proposal offers more noise and traffic by refusing to accept the proposals for Wegmans while attempting to remove any restrictions for the Metro Center. That doesn't sound like "smart growth" to me.
