Milltown project: Facts vs. fears

So, the borough's experts have stated that approximately 37 students will result from the proposed redevelopment plan?
I'd like to know the names of those so-called experts so we have some accountability because when they are proven wrong, there will be no consequence - except in higher taxes.
Here's some simple math:
The town wants to put in 276 units. Of those, 114 will be age-restricted. BUT, 96 will be for sale to anyone and another 66 will be "affordable housing".
WHO do they think will move into 2-3 bedroom units? Obviously people with kids!
If you average two kids per non-age-restricted unit and you have 324 kids! Even averaging 1.5 kids per unit will still produce 243 kids.
Stop trying to sugarcoat this project!
It will be a tax disaster for Milltown residents. There are only two logical plans for Ford Avenue:
Make the area into a park or, instead of housing, build office where the workers will help the local businesses and not cost us millions to bus additional students.
