better that than the cluster f#@k thats been approved.

Crabapple used to be charming, now it is just another high density undesirable development gone bankrupt. How sad.

Even if that development gets completed it will forever be a drain on the taxpayers of Milton. Retail and high density development costs the city far more to provide services to, than it will ever collect.

Do you have any? If you do, can you tell us where it comes from?
