The developers want to portray our neighborhood's effort to preserve Waldo Hospital as a corruption of the landmark process simply to stop development. The current owner says the preservation effort is an effort to prevent them from selling the property. Neither statement is true. The neighborhood knows development of this site is going to happen. The goal of the Maple Leaf Community is to positively shape development by making it respect the significance of this historical site. There are many examples in our own city of development doing exactly that, proving that development and preservation are not mutually exclusive.
