I live in Harbor Village Mobile Home park, one of 6 mobile home parks that will be severely impacted by the increase in traffic and noise, not to mention unsightly "flyovers" over our homes. I dread this development and actively campaign against it. DMB Associates: just add a "u" to get DUMB Associates, IMO.

Already the traffic on Marsh Road is an issue. It is so bad during the commuter hour that people try to beat it by driving through the Fair Oaks neighborhood up Holbrook avenue. The residents of Holbrook are now handing our flyers and putting up signs telling conmmuters that the neighborhood is off limits to commuters from 7 am - 9 am. They are tired of the endless stream of traffic infront of their homes every morning. I live in this neighborhood. What I think needs to be done is more lanes on Marsh Road. Put the creek underground and open it to two lanes each way. Have signs posted at Marsh and Bay and at Marsh at Fair Oaks stating something like: "this is a residential neighborhood, not a thoroughfare for commuters" ...and put speed bumps or humps up Holbrook if need be.
