Huge new block-size buildings are going up all over the city without alleyways or loading docks for their ground-floor commercial units. I'm a cyclist and hate it when drivers don't respect the lane, but when the nearest safe loading zone is sometimes a block away, what do you really expect them to do?







When the City lets developers run wild building their oversized toolsheds all over of town, this is another one of the shoddy results.

@12 all those people are great but we should choose a figure with a more direct connection to the US if we want to replace a federal holiday. Enrico Fermi springs to mind as an Italian-American who dramatically impacted the course of human history.
Sep 9, 2014 bidab commented on City Council Unanimously Passes Minimum Density Legislation.
This is a huge mistake that doesn't do anything to solve the original Wallingford CVS problem that kicked this whole thing off. The only thing this ordinance means is that CVS will have to build a second floor.

The ordinance is based entirely on floor-area ratio, instead of the number of units. A developer could take over an entire block in a historic neighborhood and build a multi-story Target on it, and call it high-density under this law even though it's a one-unit building.

So didn't this performance of In C differ from the score? If I wasn't mistaken, they began somewhere around phrase 14, instead of at the beginning. Can't be sure, as there's no recording of that part of the performance posted yet.

Paul, a bitchy style note from a onetime copy editor... King County Metro's pseudo-BRT express bus system is "RapidRide"; "Rapid Ride" is the name of both a pseudo-BRT express bus system in Albuquerque, NM, and a conventional bus system in Rapid City, SD.

Be careful not to misinterpret this story. There will still be full-body scanners at airports, including backscatter scanners, just not from this particular company. They just have to show an abstract representation of your body instead. Concerns about radiation exposure remain unaddressed.
