Paul Machado, Evergreen Park

As a native of the Mayfield/Evergreen neighborhoods, I am concerned about the diminishing quality of life. Priorities used to be families, children, schools, and a viable retail community that served the neighborhoods. This has been transformed into a plan for a dense office park where housing is for tech/office workers, neighborhoods are merely parking lots for approved under parked office structures, and retail consists of high end restaurants as they are the only retail concerns that can pay the sky high rents.
