Re: Stage Fort Park

The City seems to be moving forward with a redo including an events terrace, bandstand area improvements and mods to the parking area.  A couple months ago I noticed a sign, somewhere near the visitors' center, proclaiming (something to the effect) that  this project is being funded by the Community...

Re: Fuller Watch

Estimated rent for the affordable units:  $1289/mo for a 1 BR and $1485/mo for a 2 BR. The developer, indeed, does not want to include the affordable units, on-site, in a "luxury" rental development and has made that clear from day one.  However, Dolben, a seasoned and successful developer, has met ...

Re: Fuller Watch

Bottom line. This a move by the developer and the city to keep those people out. Anyone who cant see this is willfully blind or complicit. I don't think that.  From the ordinance: "Preference for City Residents and Persons Employed within the City : Unless otherwise prohibited by a federal or state...

California:  At least 15 dead, at least 150 missing, 20,000+ residents evacuated, 2,000+ buildings reduced to ashes.

Every bit as devastating as a hurricane or tornado.  Or even more so - the fires leave nothing.  Not a thing.  Just ashes.

And it's frustrating that people keep saying that the developer is making an in-lieu contribution of $1.5m.

Re: Fuller Watch

Thank you for the update, Karly.  I'll be interested in reading the minutes.  The Planning Board is a little slow on getting minutes posted, so I really do appreciate the information. I did want to go, but - it was a tough decision between taking in a clear, 70 degree, full moon evening in October o...
