Odds and Ends 168

OK, I'm late again. I am building the set for the musical "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" which will open on June 11 at the historic Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro.
The production is from The Relevant Stage Theatre Company where I am currently the carpenter in residence.
I have heard through sources that the folks who own the Ponte Vista site are creating a whole new team to once again, get the project moving.
My sources opine that the new team will take up where the old team left off with a plan for the 1,395 condos considered by the former development team, last year.
The consideration continues that the new team will work to get entitlement approved for the site and then attempt to form a partnership with another development company or try to sell the land, with the entitlements, and cut the losses that continue to mount.
I did see the door open at the site of Amalfitano's Bakery but there was still paper on the door and it is nowhere near open.
The Staff Report and Resolutions drawn up for Rancho Palos Verdes City Council voting on the Marymount College Facilities Expansion Project is available for download or viewing at the city's Web site:
The report is 258 pages long.
The report does not seem to include the costs to taxpayers for the proposed ballot measure Marymount is floating.
