I think there is is a point being missed in the parking/no parking debate being waged concerning the buildings at Main and Sherman. They are not trendy condos or lofts being proposed and there are limitted services in the immediate area to support car-free living for the "average" person (ie. a variety of shops, libraries, services, within easy walking distance, etc.). I believe that intensification and reduced emphasis on automobles are crucial for urban spaces but believe also that the infrastructure to support it needs to be in place before it cna really thrive. Maybe insisitng on mixed-use development (ie. commercial / residential) versus parking spots would be a way to go.
