Changing the design to match the old style of the neighborhood was a good faith gesture to the few remaining homeowners in the neighborhood, but it doesn't matter what steps the developer takes to satisfy them. They will never be satisfied. They will keep romanticizing the neighborhood to…

Over 200,000 rides with less than 100 hospital visits. I'm guessing the number of vehicle/scooter accidents were virtually non-existent since we didn't really hear much about them. The concerned citizens with "the sky is falling" prophecies about the scooter business were wrong. The numbe…

We all share and benefit from the sewer separation, Orville. Do you think there is a direct line that runs from your house all the way to the treatment plant? Someone else's tax dollars paid for the sewer separation in proximity to your house, just like your tax dollars are now paying for…
