Seeing them mention the issue with parking being across the street at the current store being a problem, in combination with the suburban style vision of Midtown, I hope that they still build the building up to the street and tuck the parking in the back.

CPD's been known to advise developments in the city not to hide the parking, especially if they will be open after dark.

Making the city less walkable leads to more criminals and more crime.  This is the sort of corrupt stupidity we need to wipe out. 

We need to design for the people we have, not hypothetical ones.  We're also short on police.   If the parking is visible from the street, the passing cruiser can keep a better eye on it.

And police can't be there 24/7, but residents can.   Maybe Dave's would be willing in a public/private situation to put a couple floors of residential on top.   Would be a great situation for senoirs:  transport access and above a grocery.

^ There will be no residential above.  The design and financing is basically done.

I'd like to have more police, we all would, but Cleveland seems to have a relatively solid amount right now.

As for hypothetical population, I would place a higher priority on that since we are supposedly in growth mode.  I don't think anyone believes the population we have is sufficient, certainly not in the vicinity of midtown.  The question then is what sort of development would entice more population to settle there.  Hard to argue with a flagship-quality grocery store.  Next question is how to build it, and I would rather account for modern trends than ignore them.

I don't understand the lack of police statement. Cleveland has the most police per 10,000 residents in Ohio.

A city designed to based on fear ends up looking like a very scary place. You build out of vision and hope for the future. The settings that result from that approach tend to be very uplifting and inclusive.

Have you ever called the police after hearing gunfire in an East side neighborhood and the police don't come for hours? That's where the comment comes from.

I've called them and gotten laughter in response, which suggests the problem isn't staffing.

^^ Perhaps, it's a lack of caring by the CPD.  Maybe the people currently employed need to be replaced with folks that care about their job.

Start with Steve Loomis.  He has the rank-and-file dragging their feet on calls to increase pressure for more officers (and be a pain in the a$$ to the city under a consent decree).

I don't think it's possible for me to agree more with the sentiment in both of the above quotes
