New City Hall

So they've cleared the space for the new  Cottonwood City complex.  Right across the street from Brighton High School.  Am I the only one who thinks this is a less-than-brilliant idea?  I readily admit that the properties were eyesores (although how much of that was caused by the city's condemnation process is an open and probably damning question), but just how is Bengal Boulevard going to handle this?  It has one lane each way with a center turning lane, and that isn't enough to handle the existing morning and afternoon school traffic and the evening special event traffic.  There's also that messy double light at 2300/2325 East.  Put the city offices there, and I expect Bengal Boulevard to start resembling a Manhattan crosstown street.
