Odds and Ends 119
I have seen more "Road Work Ahead" signs in a larger area but still near to the Ponte Vista site.
There is an orange sign with black lettering along eastbound Palos Verdes Drive North as it nears Western Avenue.
I still don't know what is going on, but I will try to learn more next week.
In John Mavar's monthly column in the San Pedro Today magazine he states that R1 is dead.
I think Mr. Mavar needs to be reminded that there are a significant number of members of OUR community who do not believe this is true. They are still working for that type of zoning to remain at the Ponte Vista at San Pedro site whether we like it or not.
There are many factions and many voices still to be heard even in this climate of more understanding and communication.
As I can continue to repeat, there is still no human on this or any other planet, nor in orbit inside the International Space Station that knows what will be approved of for Ponte Vista.
Not even John Mavar.
I will be dealing with the Marymount project and some new information about the Terranea project on my east R.P.V. blog.
Marymount has rescinded its request for on-campus housing but there has been no decision made at this time whether the College will seek to enlarge its "Palos Verdes North" off-campus housing facility that currently houses about 300 students at the site along Palos Verdes Drive North, close to Ponte Vista.
Folks representing the College do not wish to let OUR community know about the injury accident that involved two students on Western Avenue recently. Perhaps they lived at the Palos Verdes North facility, but I haven't been able to confirm that yet.
The recent and related news about the very sad fatality of a student at Marymount must be taken as a moot point where any concern about on-campus housing is concerned.
Marymount rescinded its request for on-campus housing prior to the one-vehicle incident that also injured a student of the campus.
The tragedy should not play a part in any discussion about on-campus housing as it has been eliminated from the current project's plans.
There are many upcoming Summer activities in OUR community that may involve folks representing Ponte Vista.
I hope that Ted and his development team become involved with as many of these great events as they wish to.
I believe that now we have a reasonable team assembled to work with OUR community and interacting with them should be much more pleasurable than having to deal with folks during "The Bob Years".
