Town Square

Has there been any activity regarding Edgewood Plaza?

Original post made by JustMe on Mar 28, 2007

It has been a LONG time since the last Sand Hill Properties meeting I attended, I have heard of no activity since. Does anyone have any idea how the redevelopment of Edgewood Plaza is progressing? Is it progressing?

Alma Plaza redevelopment has been going on for 10+ years and you expect our City Council to deal with Edgewood Plaza re-development in a matter of months???

I am not looking for resolution, I am looking for movement.I was expecting Sand Hill to deliver a plan for what they wanted to do that addressed unanswered questions. I expected metings, discussions, documents, something. I didn't expect the issue to be quietly dropped. There is an awful lot at stake here for a lot of people and groups, I cannot accept that there is no activity at all.

I have not been involved in Alma Plaza, but just off the top of my head I would say that there is something wrong with a project of that magnitude that is allowed to stagnate that long. I don't feel compelled to accept Edgewood stagnating just because Alma Plaza did.

I don't like to confuse motion with progress, but without motion, there can be no progress.

Wanna guess the fee for preparing new plans for a site? How about how long it will take? And when the plans don't pass muster, that flushing sound. The property owners may well be looking for a pawn shop that will loan them enough money on their parent's burial plot to do the next design. Hope springs eternal. but...
