Some expressed concern about pedestrian safety along the Pilot- town Road side of the building where there are no sidewalks. The developers said they were reviewing that situation and planned to address it. There was also concern about cars exiting the parking area of the project through the ramp that rises to meet Pilottown Road and the lack of visual safety for people in- Sumlin Continued from page 18 the neighborhood and stopped to ask directions. ber of units to be reserved for "af- fordable housing" to ensure that town employees and volunters for vital services would be able to live in their community. The Open Space Community Development District would al- low for clustering of units and greater density than in other areas of town in return for preservation of larger chunks of open space and designation of a certain num- teracting in that area. Another resident questioned whether the proposed building would blend with the adjacent buildings, including the Inn at Canal Square, Mariners Way con- dominiums and other buildings in the area. Pilothouse architect Buck Sim- pers said it would not be a prob- lem to use computer renderings to show how the project would fit in- to the streetscape.
