Update on the valiant house at 1009 East Market. The adjacent lot to the east now boasts a three story preschool! A for sale sign has appeared. Tecnicolor zoning. We have similar zoning, destructive to the fabric and function of our community, in the Woolen Mills neighborhood.

multimodal path City walk

The City is hoping to establish an off road, 10 foot wide multi-modal path between downtown and Meade Park in the Woolen Mills. The path and the fence (to keep pedestrians off the railroad tracks) have been planned for years. This is a section of the path and fence adjacent to “City Walk”. The scarified area pictured above will receive treatment similar to this in City Walk in the coming months.

How best to handle the commons, the City owned right of way throughout town, 156 miles of street?
Tomorrow, the City is holding a community engagement event for the “Streets That Work” project that will address this and other questions related to streets.
Be there!

“Ending the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy is simply the right thing to do for the good of our customers and our company. The sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose – helping people on their path to better health.”–CVS

Simply the right thing to do? On my way from this, the front counter, to the pharmacy counter in the back of the store there is an entire aisle LOADED with candy. What percentage of the people who walk through the portals of CVS are obese and/or diabetic?
