My take on the meeting is similar to Dr Mitchell's. To me, the big box stores proposed by the Trinity group seem a real deal killer. I have been trying to think of an area that has
a community feel and scale as shown by the Trinity presentation next to a big box development,and so far have come up empty.The parking spaces and car volumes to support big box would seem a major design challenge.

The relatively small size of the MIP land ( 1/4 of Waterloo's park) also seems a significant barrier to the vision of MIP as a "world class development". Lets hope that Trinity and the city can come up with a plan that supports the WHID zoning.
