Erin Ridge doesn't need another development

I attended the city council meeting on Aug. 19, 2013. Several residents from Erin Ridge spoke against placing the "regional" francophone school in Eldorado Park. The existing traffic and high density development in this area is at a breaking point.
City council allowed the hospital to sell land for a seniors complex (that was supposed to be two stories and was built as four stories), the hospital itself has expanded and shopping complexes were added.
We are saturated with developments. I have contacted the city public works department on three separate occasions about near pedestrian/car accidents.
I know that people working at the hospital have also complained to public works and the RCMP. What will it take for the city to listen to our concerns? If the city thinks that the traffic situation will improve with the addition of a regional high school, they are wrong.
It is a matter of time before someone is killed on Erin Ridge Drive.
Mayor Crouse, this is your wake-up call.
