SCAN - Wednesday
At SCAN, the minutes from the last meeting have a couple of interesting items.
|Mural proposed for 1198 Commercial St SE|
There was also news that the Hospital is going to sell the Everson House on the corner of Church and Mission Street instead of making it into a quasi B on B or temporary housing for institutional use. It's not clear whether the Hospital has grown tired of the neighborhood's criticism and decided it wasn't worth continuing with the project. Or perhaps they genuinely reassessed internal needs and realized it was no longer needed.

|Is there a bigger, older oak in SCAN?|

|The dip along Mission between Fairmount Hill and Gaiety Hill|
used to be called Sleepy Hollow (June 17th, 1912)
The South Central Association of Neighbors meets Wednesday the 13th at 6:30 p.m. in the South Salem High School Library, 1910 Church St SE.
Morningside - Wednesday
|Wilco: Non-binding Commercial-Vista Corridor Plan?|
[The association asked about] an extension of the comment period for the Wilco store (old Safeway building at Commercial and Ratcliff) plan review, so we could submit our comments on their plan and weigh in on whether or not City should approve their parking lot and landscaping plan which calls for less spaces than required for the old grocery store parking, but six more spaces than code allows for hardware store parking; her concern was that – though Wilco plans to add landscaping within the parking lot, it does not provide the amenities called for in the recently - adopted South Commercial Street Corridor plan – specifically, trees and landscaping between the sidewalk and parking lot...I don't believe that the study has been formally adopted by Council or its recommendations adopted as TSP amendments. So without more information it's hard to say where the fault in the process might be. The City might not yet be in a position to require that the development conform to the study's recommendations. At the same time, it would be a real missed opportunity.
The Morningside Neighborhood Association meets at Pringle Creek Community Painters Hall, 3911 Village Center Drive SE on Wednesday the 13th at 6:30 PM.
