Three projects under the microscope at city hall tonight

St. John’s city hall will probably feature the best show in town tonight: council will be addressing three separate subjects in the city which all have the potential for great theatrics in the chambers. First up is the always controversial municipal plan. Second is the proposed Fortis tower development on the west side of Water Street. The twelve story office tower has generally – and surprisingly – been received positively. Third is the application for an indoor bicycle and skateboard park on Blackmarsh Road. Residents in the area are apparently expressing their concerns that having so many young people in one place will increase noise levels (and seemingly are forgetting the positives of having a fun supervised place for St. John’s youth to congregate).
