- The latest renderings of the Cultural Trail. Mentioned in the article is the transformation to parallel parking spaces along the 800 block of Mass Ave, thus eliminating many little-used spaces.
- An effort to raise funds to add recycling containers to Mass Ave.
- A food co-op is in the works on the Near East Side.
Unfortunately, the article that made the most impression on me is not available on the web. It was the message sent by the President of the Chatham Arch Neighborhood Association. He cited the Historic Preservation Plan and used sections of it to prove his point: that Chatham Arch is to remain primarily residential.
I still have a hard time with CANA’s rejection of everything non-residential. That this article shows up in a newsletter named “Urban Times” is quite a paradox. I have to imagine that a major reason that people live in Chatham Arch is because of its proximity to stores and restaurants. The northern end of Chatham Arch lacks these assets, and the Chatham Center project would certainly help on that aspect.
