  • Lets see, they approved the mowing down of wooded area and the progress of suburban type development, yet did not approve a project that would revive a troubled area?

    Is that really going in where Marott park is????

    *scratching head*

    • Curt, it’s north of Park Tudor…other side of College from Marott Park.

      Proof of one thing: they’re not making any more land in Williams Creek. What’s there is valuable enough to knock down an old house and subdivide at a profit…that will most certainly not be a vinyl village of $130K homes.

      The goofy thing is…there was a home on the site with driveway access from Park Ave.!!!

  • Yeah I meant to say across the street from Marott…

  • Is that the subdivision without sidewalks?
