Hi before I give my reasons, firstly in general I have no issue around more (new blood) coming to Oak Park and townhouse/apartments. For background: I moved here 2 1/2 years ago and I am a owner of a townhouse. I have a young family and children that attends the nearest public school and daycare. I catch public transport and my wife drives. My issue is, infrastructure, it's at capacity, I'm talking roads, parking, trains (there are no trams!), even sewage (which plays up rainy days, ie smell). Until this is 'caught-up', we need less replacing single house with multiple dwellings. Nearly every time a house is bought in Oak Park (and surrounding Suburbs) it's knocked down and replaced with multiple dwellings. I do understand a lot of the infrastructure is outside your control but you should be aware and plan accordingly else failing your duty of care to residents
