12 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 27 - September 2, 1999 Pilothouse Continued from page 10 possible to calculate the fewest number of parking spaces re- quired. My calculations say they need 91 spaces, which is what they have. "But 21 of those spaces are tan- dem meaning a car would have to move to allow another car to get out of a space. Those are illegal spaces. Plus, the 7-foot height in the parking garage at the first lev- el isn't tall enough for service ve- hicles, tow trucks or emergency vehicles. Where will those vehi- cles park?" Other opponents expressed concerns about pedestrian and bi- cycle safety along Front Street where the project would face, the need for sidewalks, environmen- tal quality of the site and the need for more testing, and the loss of open space that construction of the project would entail. Moore not concerned The day following the hearing, project partner Ron Moore said he didn't hear anything at the hearing he didn't expect to hear. "They were organized well and I was happy that they kept their comments to a few people. The only thing is, most of what was said about flaws in our plans was wrong. "We've spent 16 months re- searching to make sure we were right. I think we can prevail on the issues and we're moving ahead. We can't afford to walk away at this point. We have too much time and too much money invested." Joe Stewart, who's been in- volved in the organized opposi- tion to the project, said he is still interested in coming up with an alternate plan for the property. ':There are a lot of people who have pledged thousands of dollars to see that property become some sort of maritime theme public space. "Hopefully Moore and Kieman will come to the same conclusion. This is a once-in-a-lifetime op- portunity to preserve this open space for present and future gen- erations. We've been working with the Nature Conservancy and hopefully we can all get together again to pursue this initiative." Moore said he and Kiernan would still be willing to sell their interest at this point. He said the price would be somewhere between $500,000 and $I million. "That would include all of our expenses to date and some com- pensation for all the time we have in the project at this point. Of course the cost of the land would be on top of that. I don't think Parsons [Dale] cares who he sells /c" d' " Moore said his father used to have a saying he would repeat of- ten before he died. "I don't want any of the cheese, I just want to get out of the trap," Moore added.
