I disagree that parking will hurt the neighborhood. The lack of parking is a big problem with IW that has kept suburbanites who demand a suburban experience away from the stadium. Those 1500 parking spots will mean more fans coming to see the Cats, which will mean more business in the neighborhood.

Obviously losing Timmis will and the baseball diamonds is sad for a neighborhood that is already short on greenspace unless you're willing to go all the way to Gage Park, but the parking lots will lead to more (and more affluent) business at the stadium, and that will mean more economic activity for the area. Hopefully that activity will be captured some way... of course, IW's residential location makes that tricky.
