Stop Targeting Lower Merion

Stop Target from putting a store in Ardmore.  Please stop developers from targeting Lower Merion.  The Board of Commissioners' duty is to the residents and not to the developers and businesses.  A Target on the intersection of Lancaster Ave. and Ardmore Ave. will only make traffic worse than it is already is.  The 32,000 sf of retail, 35 apartments and only 87 parking spots does not fit on that intersection.  Our School District is experiencing problems with overcrowding.  You need to put a brake on large developments to help with the overcrowding of the School District.  Allowing the developer to use the municipal parking lots will push the small businesses by Ardmore West to go out of business by having to share the only parking they have.  Allowing the developer to use the municipal parking lot by the Ardmore House will put the senior citizens that live at the Ardmore House in danger by increasing the traffic there.  This development does not qualify for MUST (Mixed Use Special Transportation District) as only a small section of the Target is within 1,500 sf of the Ardmore Train Station.  Keep Ardmore charming, residential and affordable.
