Odds and Ends 74

Let me start with an example of a developer who seems above the law of the city where his development is located.

You can either copy and past the link or click over the title of this post.

This same developer also has some plants growing in his property that violate the laws and ordinances of the city.

I have a post from another blog that is suggesting that Bob's project in Santa Ana, City Place, is not selling at the pace that seems satisfactory.

The post, which I may run an a couple of weeks, states that the marketing segment of that project is willing to pay individuals who bring in buyers, who actually buy a unit at that development.

I have two posts at that I wrote about City Place.

I don't really understand the concept of a work space/living space loft, but there are several units that have businesses on the ground floor with living spaces on the upper two floors.

It is true that I opined that City Place is much more identifiable as being part of 'smart growth' as compared to Ponte Vista.

City Place is literally steps away from a large mall, some decent shopping (but no Supermarket nearby), and is very close to three freeways.

There is still much reading to do concerning "Bob and His Six New Blogs".

Some of the sites look to be just Web sites, with some of them not taking comments.

The blog established to let folks know more about Ponte Vista still contains the requirements that if you wish to post comments, a name and Email address is required.

Even if you use a fake name and a rarely used Email address, I think any negative comments might not be printed.

By the way, Nels McGook Hoopnoodle does not have his own Email address. Neither does Sven Ludvquist O'Brien.

On my R Neighborhoods Are 1 blog is a photo of the letter sent to folks living in the area of the former McCowan's Market site on 20Th and Walker.

The letter indicates that the zoning on three parcels of property purchased by an out of town developer has been formally changed to allow only single-family, detached houses on lots of not less than 5,000 square feet, to be built on the commercial lots.

Of course it is a small thing compared to Ponte Vista, but it is a huge issue to those good folks who needed to maintain their neighborhoods and it is something we all can be proud of.
