13Feb 6, 2010 2:04 PMIn a RM2 zone with duplexes, rentals and some small businesses, “infill” construction has become quite popular in larger cities.

23Feb 16, 2010 3:12 PMCondos and townhomes - NOT rental units. "Residential" to me means owning, not renting. We do not need or want more rental units. Typically a renter has a complete disregard for things of merit - i.e. historic

41Feb 25, 2010 6:35 PMThere are quite a few vacancies in my area - would suggest lowering taxes etc to attract investment
42Feb 26, 2010 4:49 PMNo and don't feel we need to accommodate more people We would just like to see preservation of historic properties, houses which have value especially if they go back to 1885 .
43Feb 26, 2010 6:07 PMThe heritage nature of Allandale, at least in its residential portions, would be severely impacted by anything more than medium density housing types. The ideal would be single family homes in a suitable heritage style.
