I am very concerned about the proposal to build a bank and three houses in the Revere Shopping Center. Councilman Fred Pollack seems to approve the plan in a letter sent to community residents. I couldn't disagree more.
My concern is the impact this will have on the already existing parking problem for the establishments located on Port Washington Boulevard between Revere Road and Fairview Avenue. What will be the negative impact on these businesses if people can't park to use their services? A bank in the shopping center will significantly increase traffic in the area as well. I'd like to know what the residents who live on Revere and Fairview think about the cars constantly parked in front of their homes because of the lack of public parking.
Mr. Pollack tries to justify this proposal by saying it will have a minimal impact on the community or in some way be beneficial. The only person who benefits from this proposal is the owner of the shopping center. My guess is he doesn't live in Port Washington.
