Twiggs Park to grow

Twiggs Park along the canal will expand as the result of an agreement the city has reached with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District.

The City Council tonight approved leasing the land on the south side of the canal from Ashland Avenue southeast to the existing park at Dewey Avenue.

City may be taking a correct step in the development process

This Friday the City recieved proposals for an "Urban Design" approach to the 5th ward TIF area. While I have not reviewed the proposal it appears the city maybe taking a small step in the right direction. On the night they passed the TIF I spoke at the hearing that they needed to take this approach. That is the City needed to understand what they want to develop in the area in regards to mass and density.
