Micheal,
Good article. You forgot one more negative point about asphalt parking lots.
They result in a 'heat island effect' by absorbing sunlight and converting it into heat.
Surface temperature 1m above these lots is significantly higher than it would be on gravel, grass or even concrete.
Another thing local residents will have to contend with - as if it is not already hot enough in the city.
I know. I am an elementary teacher in North Hamilton and many of my students live a mere few blocks from this proposed lot.
