The image above is a birds-eye view of the next phase of development. This area has been designed to have mixed-income housing, in a mixed-use neighborhood, in a place that is transformational for the people who will call it home. Does this image make you feel: (select all that apply) Excited to live here!
The building designs for the part of the neighborhood closest to the Basilica of St. Mary’s are designed to be smaller in scale, so that each family has their own space to spread out. Would you like having a place like this? (choose one) Yes
The homes and apartments along Chapel, Mariner, Reilly, Holt, Virgin, and Resilience Drive will be lined with balconies or porches with room for friends and family to gather. Do you see yourself using these spaces if you lived here? Yes
In the image above, you can see a variety of outdoor recreation spaces in one of the public plazas. Would you use a space like this? Not Sure
If Other, please write in comment: These spaces should be careful to not be too dense with trees too large for the space. Dark shaded spaces are not as inviting as brighter spaces. I’ve talked to Mel Price on this so I hope she has made sure.
The smallest-scale town homes (image above) are on quiet, tree- lined streets close to the Basilica of St. Mary’s. They have front porches and balconies and are just a short walk away from the Blue-Greenway. Do you think you would use the landscaped spaces and parks that surround your new home?
Not Sure
If Other, write in comment: Plenty of sunlight please. I cannot tell from pictures at all but the landscaping needs to be more naturally diverse, like verge strips should be planted with native types and in a natural mode. Trees should not be all stick straight trees but emulative of our coastal shrubby-tree. Lots to unpack here.
All of the kitchens will be equipped with modern appliances and features. Can you see yourself preparing meals in a kitchen like this? (see image above)
Yes
Above are possible unit floor plans for the new buildings. Does this feel like home for you and your family?
Yes
Community gardens are among the amenities offered throughout the neighborhood. Would this opportunity for fresh produce support your health and wellness goals?
Yes
Please select the option that best describes you (pick one). Interested citizen, who does not live within the St. Paul’s area
If you are a current St. Paul’s area resident, how long have you lived in this neighborhood?
Not sure/No Response
What is your age range? 55-64 years
