  • This seems misguided and unfair. Is another brewery what we need in our public market? Why would the city want one operation out for basically the same kind of business replacing the one business that made it in that building? I have to wonder about…
  • Mayor Andy responded to a letter I wrote to him about Scott Woods, which was very nice. He said that what they are replacing is a "force main sewer" which is under pressure. It is 60 years old [60 is not that old!} and is at the end of its usefulnes…
  • I look at the stacks every day they are right outside my window and I have never seen this angle, but the logo is fine with me! Just a little basic. I have been wondering if they could use the cement stacks as a core/base for a building around the s…
  • The new logo is OK, but when I first saw it I did not think "oh that is a reference to the 3 smokestacks", they are all the same height for one thing. There is a jewelry company named Effy that uses a very similar font and logo. To me, if you are go…
  • Of course, I would like a much better design for this project. I was reacting to the drawings presented. The reality of the situation is something will be built on the former golf course. Why they ever started this whole development is another topic…
  • Not bad! I like that this is a contemporary design and not trying to be something that kind of looks like another style from the past. I like that this drawing has no false roofs or whatever they call those slabs on top of a lot of new buildings. Se…
  • Thank you for writing about this issue. I think they may have been talking about relining the current drain pipe, which was not the best solution for them. I am very happy that people are shining a light on the project. These places belong to the pe…
  • I wrote to the Mayor. This seems like the sunken garden all over again. Or like Ormand Park when they cut the trees first and answered questions later. I am hoping that the mayor might be more sympathetic towards these kinds of issues.
  • It's alive! Thank you for posting this notice.
  • I can wait to see it!
  • I read some distressing tree news in the City Pulse about a plan to replace a drain pipe the goes through Scott Woods, the woodlands off Clifton Street next to Hawk Island Park. This will, of course, require tree removal. Those trees are some the la…
  • I read Mayor Andy's speech and did not find any big new announcements, more like a review of what has already been announced. I did like his vision for the future looking at everything from the road up for improvements to make in our city. I was hop…
  • More green space is great news.
  • Condolences to those who lost in this fire. If the young man believed as Buddist do, he will be coming back soon and because of his good deeds in this life his next will be better than this.
  • I was not saying you are those things. I was using a "little" humor:} I know we have a different pages for ease of finding information that we are interested in. I really do appreciate all the posts here and the posters!
  • Thank you, I guess that is why I see the for sale signs in place for other spots that are going to be developed. I have been wondering about that. I promise to post on the right page!
  • Now that winter has begun in January I wonder about the city's snow plowing efforts. I often see one truck seemingly at random going down a street[ never ours! the one block of W. Hazel]. I also see the city plowing the sidewalks on the Aurelius Roa…
  • Thank you that is what I was thinking, but I wonder why they still have for sale signs if Urban Systems already owns this lot?
  • It may be just a change in a company name but I noticed new for sale signs on the REOtown sign lot at M.X. and S. Washington. There have been for sale signs there all along while they have been working on the hotel and apartments planned for this sp…
  • Very cool building very industrial location seems like they will be big apartments. Not my idea of a good spot for apartments but there must be a market for this or they would not be renovating this building. It is amazing the detail and design for …
