Re: TC’s uglification
The incredible lack of wise planning on the part of the Traverse City planners and managers who have allowed the tree cutting and ghastly concrete buildings — on West Front Street near the Civic Center and the Uptown Condos built into the river near the Union Street dam — is mind-boggling.
These new buildings look like crematoriums.
These buildings are built right to the edges of the river and the sidewalks; they are going to make Traverse City famous for its ugliness.
Traverse City needs more parks, more green space, more trees, more tree canopy, more landscaping with native plants — not less.
Trees and parks are needed for beauty and clean air.
If Traverse City doesn’t wake up and get with the times, tourists are going to flee to Northport.
