Interesting plan and mix, would like to see the streetscape developed to underline the ambition, achievable intent.

I like how it includes mixed uses ... including space for commercial uses, play areas, sports areas etc. Mixed use is important. That said, if the valley/ravine area is going to be the most scenic, I don't favor having the light industrial buildings being along the ravine. Better to have a mix of residential plus things like restaurants, coffee shops etc. looking out over the valley area.

It’s hard to see from the pictures how these would be better than the houses on the Springfield road. I like the ideas but I would like to hear more from the designers. Would the solar panels be able to store and share energy with the other houses in the community?
