“I love everything that’s old, old friends, old times, old houses, old manners, old gardens, old books, old wine. I hope to spread that love to others— Hope is such a bait, it covers any hook. Like the gleaming taper’s light, adorns and cheers our way; and still, as darker grows the night, emits a brighter ray.”
Avondale has been invited to “tea” at the Azerbaijan Center 308 Avondale at 2pm Sat Jan 30.
Come and meet our wonderful neighbor and learn about their fascinating culture. For Azerbaijania tea is associated with warm and hospitality and tradition says that one should not allow a guest to leave the house without a cup of tea.
Have you heard the latest on Montrose parking District?
March General Meeting Feb 4 at 7pm will host Anthony Allender from the Montrose Management District who will give information to us.
The Montrose Management District (MMD) submitted an application for the Montrose District Special Parking Area in 2014 under a new city ordinance that permits areas to be designated as special parking districts. The application has gone through two rounds of reviews and revisions with the City Planning Department and is expected that the final application will be sent to the City by mid next week (last week of July).
The goal of having the parking district designation is to help maintain the character of the Montrose while also promoting economic growth. The designation will allow the Management District to make the on-site parking requirements for businesses more flexible using standards established by MMD. There may also be an opportunity to capture a tax increment that would permit MMD to invest in centralized parking to serve the district (e.g., adding extra spaces to a garage planned by a private developer). The details of these provisions are still being worked out. The MMD parking district proposal will probably go to City Planning Commission in the next month and then to City Council for approval in October. Attached is map of the Montrose District Special Parking.
