Re: the possibility of a high-density subdivision approval at the end of Inverness Road, there are a few things that are indisputable.
The first is that high-density building has been proven as the best use of land within urban areas.
But the choice of where is significant. Indisputable also are the badly planned origins of the Glenrosa subdivision, which continues to expand. The plan allowed for only one exit, that of Glenrosa Road, and now, possibly a second, if Lower Glenrosa Road is considered.
In case of fire emergency, the residents of Inverness Road are no different than any other residents in this subdivision, regardless of the outcome of pending subdivision approval.
All must sit and wait at intersections, which are clogged when people are fleeing, in spite of two lanes exiting. During the past fire, the residents of the street I reside on remained in their homes, concluding it was pointless to sit in their cars for hours, waiting to get onto Webber Road.
The simple question I ask is: considering the potential and significant fire threat, why would we add more resident population to an already overburdened, non-efficient emergency exit?
I would suggest placing priority on the location and building of another escape route before more homes are built in this area.
