Where do I sign?
Cameras? How about some more street lights.
"What caused the gun fight in the first place? Two individuals in a dispute most likely fueled by alcohol. " --Seems like you're making a pretty significant assumption.
I love the creativity. We have an opportunity here to do something unique and cool, so let's give it a try!
I stopped in the other day and though I hate to make the spot too popular—the back bar is going to be my destination. It has a super cozy feel and easy access to the patio.
Always love the photos!
Is this true? I'm interested.
FYI, there is a very fast bus to the airport, re: "In the meantime, folks wanting to catch a flight on time will need to find another way to get to Sacramento international Airport... TAXI!"
It is operated by Yolobus and you can find the schedule here: http://www.yolobus.com/media/Sac-SMF.pdf
One of the very nice things is that there are no intermediate stops, so the trip will still likely be faster even when the green line is complete.
I do. I do not take comfort in the constant erosion of our local media. The Sacramento Press was founded to augment a solid base of reporting from other outlets, not to compete or fill growing gaps.
And, yes, a newsroom librarian is an amazing and important position within a newsroom. I don't know many of the other details, but it is unfortunate when people lose their jobs and for those of us in the local media business here, it does mean a lot.
"... plans to implement a tiered online paywall system as part of a strategy to draw more revenue from its site."
Or more likely to push up Sunday circ.
While I agree that I'm excited, the nitpicky complaints might yield a better design. That's why the Co-op wanted to hear them. It also might expedite the process if neighbors are onboard from day one.
If you are interested in butter not melting and walking in the central city then having a plan for shade trees next to sidewalks and such are nitpicky, but needed considerations.
I'm crazy, I know, but I want to see a west coast branch of a wealthy and renowned university.
In a perfect world this would also provide for some sports facilities (though maybe not pro level) and residents with disposable incomes.
Apple is looking for low state taxes too.
My bike is toast
Train specials and Coast to Coast sandos—I'm there.
First, I agree with you Tom that the street-fronted parking lot is not fantastic. And if it is this design, it might be better to design it with a trellis and a corner business or two like Safeway on 19th.
I would like to take a stab at why they designed it this way. I believe that most of their customers drive and that for motorists street fronted parking is more appealing, thus driving more customers and growing the business. But I could certainly be wrong about that.
"George Raya delighted an audience of around 40 people..." - perfectly worded. George is above all a delightful human being.
I'm a big fan of Wendy Hoyt and I'm glad she is consulting on this project. This represents a major development in the Newton Booth neighborhood and residents' input will likely lead to a more successful project.
I think it's about a neighborhood and an appeal to get a special permit to change land use on a parcel.
If you want fast food there it sounds like you can build that, but the city is not bending over backwards to change the general plan to get a McDonalds built.
