Rejection of Prospect’s affordable housing

Prospect’s objections to the affordable housing project (too large, too tall, inadequate bus service, few nearby government services, too close to service station, incompatible with neighboring houses) sound like the VA Hospital at Brownsboro Road objections. Those objections were not enough to move the new VA Hospital to a more central location, but it seems such objections work for Prospect and Norton Commons.
Three wrongs.
The new VA Hospital should not be in suburbia.
Prospect and Norton Commons should not oppose affordable housing.
The mayor should have come out strong on both issues.
