BAND CAMP/essex Saturday August 23

Just Like Newman

Saturday afternoon into the night Band Camp presented singers, bands, dogs and more dogs!! In the field of Peter Hoare and Cynthia Sweet in Essex the weather went from gray to great and the party was on.

TOD Development Potential

I ran across this link to a MAPC study, browsing news for work. TOD or Transportation Oriented Developments are getting a lot of talk today and places like Melrose are already trying to capitalize on the idea. I thought to post the following link to the study  on GMG as the concept could be looked into for Gloucester and perhaps Beverly. The effort usually takes a zoning overlay district that allows mixed use developments and areas with strong connections to rail and bus systems. Not sure if anyone’s thinking along these lines already.

Follow this link to the MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council) study of stations within the Metro area showing potential for development and capacity. Melrose has now proposed zoning changes in it’s Tremont/Essex Street Commuter Rail Corridor. Some of these include relaxed height restrictions allowing 4 stories, up from 2 stories, greater density, and broadened scope of allowed uses.  Great ideas for growth going forward with incorporation of public transportation as a foundation. . IMHO!





Morning Sun

It must be warm being in the sun and between the window and the shade. As is said sometimes, these shots were “offense by accident”, I saw this guy out of the corner of my eye driving through Magnolia. Turned around and he waited for me…

RoboCop Appears to be Thawing – Will he get free in time?

Caught in a wicked storm RoboCop had frozen solid within the ice. Now he could feel the sun and his energy was recharging. Soon he will break free to wreak  justice on the not so innocent…His prayers have been answered.  Little does he know another storm is already fast approaching which could prolong his confinement!!

Can you see RoboCop?
