It's built right beside a Creek, on a flood-plain (yeah, thanks Council!),
so it's done like that so that the apartments are up away from the water
the next time
Is the whole ground level a parking lot or parking structure, perhaps?

How do you tag an area, in this case an entire housing estate!, that is

(with the usual not mapping from Google ...)

Following the discussion on how to tag COVID-19 vaccination centres previously
on this list,
I have created a proposal for the vaccination key:

The needs you post make perfect sense, but as a non-developer, I can't actually
translate that into a project or estimate time/budget. If someone else can,
that would certainly make it easier. Clearly someone trying to impose
something on OSM carto is a non-starter and against the community

There seems to be quite a lot of anger and animosity in here - paired and in
parts probably caused by a very selective and in parts flat out wrong
perception of history so i will try to sketch quickly how the development of
mapping of names of parts of waterbodies (that is mostly bays and

Basically if someone could identify a solution to some of the problems that

Some of that was pure or nearly pure software development, though most of them
are either funded or were a quite poor proposals.

So what? Someone (an individual, not 'OSM-Carto' as a whole) made a suggestion
(and not a demand) that turned out to not be such a good idea and therefore did
not achieve consensus.
