  1. I would not be surprised to see them take over the nearby Family Dollar or Walgreen's instead (This is pure speculation; I have no evidence that either will close).... I'm still surprised that the Family Dollar on Broadview and Pearl has managed to stay open despite there being one opening in the former Aldi's on Pearl, just north of the bridge... (I know the stores serve two separate neighborhoods but I'm still surprised sales are high enough to justify keeping both open). (The More you know: the Family Dollar on Broadview and Pearl was previously a movie theater that was demolished in the late 80s/early 90s with community support because it showed 'adult' films; then was a Discount Drug Mart for about 15 years until Family Dollar moved in there in the late 00s... Also there was a proposal in the mid 70 (before the library was built) for State Road to meet a less sharper angle to Pearl (the road would have been where the library is ; I'll try to dig up the map...)
  2. You haven't tried the Mediterranean place that recently opened just west of 3101?
  3. I'd be down; If I recall correctly, most of the tables in 5th streets are laid out one table (of 2-4) in a row, and if you move them together, we'd probably end up blocking pedestrian traffic. Moving the tables together wouldn't be as much as an issue (of block ped traffic) if we are in the back, near the staircase of the old arcade.
  4. There was a PD article, iirc, within the past week or 2, that said there were still several long leases (~2030) in the PD building to other companies that couldn't be broken or same companies/organizations wanted too much $ to break their leases.
  5. I assume he's been a little busy for several years with his court case with the IRS. (that was, as far as I can tell) finally settled only a couple weeks ago when the supreme court denied his Writ of Certiorari after 9th Circuit court ruled against his favor in November 2018. (https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/18-1520.html) https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-9th-circuit/1902360.html http://woodllp.com/Publications/Articles/pdf/The_Midco_Saga.pdf (this woodllp has the most info on it) http://calapp.blogspot.com/2018/11/tricarichi-v-cir-9th-cir-nov-13-2018.html No idea on the guy's net worth either, but he's out of at least $15 million in those back taxes owed and that case was probably tying up some of his capital. Earlier this year, he also unsuccessfully tried to sue the people who had facilitated that midco purchase - https://law.justia.com/cases/nevada/supreme-court/2019/73175.html

  7. The map is at https://www.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=8732c91ba7a14d818cd26b776250d2c3 The information pop-up (lower-left side) provides the additional context: 1 dot represents 1 vote in the 2016 presidential election the dots are distributed in dasymetric fashion at the county level (so each vote/dot is within the county that the vote was cast; but the exact dots of the are weighed or placed according to specific classifications - according to this map, more dots are placed in areas with land uses designated as 'urban' or ' semi-urban' (and of course, you can't always take a data set's veracity at face value, but you can see that there are many areas without any dots and that they lineup quite close with freeways/major roads); As a semi-professional cartographer, it's not the greatest map at what it's trying to do - showing voters' preferences in (especially technically, the map layers aren't loading very smoothly for me) don't use this map if you want to see the geographic differences within a county level (e.g. the suburban vs city proper divide) but from experience; these maps aren't very easy to do and many election maps are misleading; and Kenneth Field, the author of this one (and my personal opinion of following him on twitter for several years; he is very knowledgeable on cartography but he is somewhat of an elitist and ornery).
  8. I've visited it; and it's worth attending. Many of us who are history nerds may already be familiar with a lot of the topics that are mentioned (redlining, covenants, zoning, etc) but it's worth going. You could spend anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on how much reading that you want to do.

  10. I know I'm beating a dead horse, the amount of retail space and malls (Legacy village, south park, crocker park, even recently Pinecrest and I think I forgot 1 or 2 others) have increased even as our county population decreased!
  11. I don't have photos at the moment and there's no groundbreaking, but there were signs for townhomes on Southwest corner of East 141st and Harvard.
  12. the parcels that ken is talking about are currently being used as a place to rent a car if you want to be a driver for a car sharing company. including parcels 315-15-017, 315-15-021; iirc, he's intending that to become a medical marijuana discrepancy
  13. Exactly how population in Ohio City over the past couple years has actually marginally shrank (According to Ashley Shaw of Ohio City Inc, the local CDC) homes have fewer people in it or parcels that had multiple units now have one larger living space.
  14. Shouldn't be relatively that difficult of a conversion; it (and perhaps the parcel immediately to the south as well) previously was nursing home/assisted living until it became vacant 5-10 years ago.
  15. IIRC, only some video service is included in Amazon prime; others (Showtime, HBO) are not but can be purchased separately.
