An Update

I was able to finish and post the Planning Board story after getting up in the middle of the night. The modem behaved and it is now 4:07 a.m., not 3-something p.m. as indicated on the post.

Last fall I had hoped to do a review of all the pending development and redevelopment projects, but a promised "official" update took a long time to be released and I kind of lost momentum on the story. The other problem was that a summary by the name of each proposal does not include context and background, which when added would make quite a long story, given the lapse of time since they were offered. The rapid flow of proposals in 2006 has not been followed by much action since then.

The mention Thursday of the vacant lot on Somerset Street and the fact that the Park-Madison office building has yet to receive sign-offs on all conditions imposed by the Planning Board indicate some of the loose ends out there. Newcomers may not even have heard of the 18 or so proposals that I have been trying to track over the years.

Because this blog basically began four years ago to apprise readers of redevelopment issues, I will try again this month to go over them.
