Tensions Rise as Vote Nears on Loft Apartments

Edgartown Lofts Demand Scrutiny

Many of us remain extremely concerned about the proposed Edgartown Lofts apartments at the already congested Triangle area, for reasons of both safety and sanity. We all know that housing is a serious issue on the Vineyard; many of us have done the frustrating Vineyard shuffle ourselves. And we all (try to) drive through that chaotic intersection, as do our visitors. We need more planning from our planning boards and fewer knee-jerk reactions. We all need to make efforts to maintain and support the quality of life we, residents and visitors alike, love.
