The History Association has submitted plans to remodel the old garage (barn) behind the jail into a museum. Now that we have the lease, and (we hope) with the plans being approved soon, we'll start construction sometime in the next 4-6 months.

Justin, if you look at the plans, these are in no way affordable housing. They will be at the high end of apartment prices on the Midcoast, in all likelihood. I am completely in favor of affordable housing, and am one of the supporters of Cypress Point, for that reason. I in fact asked th…

Gary, I'd be happy to talk over the issues with you, and the process that got us the recently replaced amber LED streetlights in the Midcoast. The new streetlights are less bright than any of the previously installed lights, and are designed to reduce light on the houses (on both sides of t…

Hey folks, nobody is going to claim that every cyclist is as careful or lawabiding as they could be, but the vast majority are! In any case, don't blame the victim. That's a long slipper slope.
