> In my opinion a Public Benefit is a physical improvement that is accessible to and benefits the general public.
> Paying otherwise required taxes or building underground tenant use only garages, for examples, do not benefit

> rights in exchange for a very small one time cash payment to the city.
>
> 2 - The ECR NE - Low Density zone development limits should be revised to completely eliminate the Public Benefit
> bonus since the current Public Benefit bonus FAR is inconsistent with the designation of Low Density. This zone
> is primarily residential and a Public Benefit bonus FAR of 1.25 far exceeds what is appropriate for a residential
> area.
>
> Thank you for your consideration of these suggestions.
