Hopefully they rethink more than just the roundabouts. I noticed that they made most of the best land in the plan, the land within spitting distance of the station, into greenspace, which in itself is not terrible. It's just that it takes the land best suited to high rise, high density TOD and turns it into a park, pushing any developments further away from the station and limiting their usefulness in terms of being Transit Oriented.
