Public meeting Thursday, September 15, 6pm.
Rotary vs. roundabout: The flyer drawing doesn’t convey the look of the 2 big rotaries nor the crazy crazy thrust the vehicle into a giant pin-ball machine experience of Beverly’s recent build. Whether the quaint English village conjuring that ’roundabout’ conveys or classic MA descriptor rotary, any Tally intersection discussions aren’t new. I’ve seen other plans and heard people express variations on a soaring pedestrian bridge as a lift connecting Main to the Boulevard and expansive view of the harbor.
I’m interested in plans and public space and regret that I can’t attend. It’s the same date and time as Open House at O’Maley Innovation Middle School.
How to create pedestrian friendly cities while maintaining necessary vehicular traffic is a challenge. It will be great to hear feedback from the presenters and the community. The flyer and drawing is just that, a rendering. Plans take forever! The boulevard recent reconstruction at the Cut as one example began in discussions pre-1999.
Here’s a coloring sheet. What would you do? And renderings dated February 2015.
From a planning perspective: “Does the investment action help to encourage sprawl or does it invest in your community?”
Not sure if it is temporary or permanent but there’s officially another rotary in my life. This one near the school where I teach in Beverly.
Happily (I think) it is there due to the clearing and construction of the new Whole Foods due to open later this year.
In case you were not aware that Beverly is indeed getting a Whole Foods you can read more about it by following the link below.
WHOLE FOODS MARKET PLANS BEVERLY, MASS., LOCATION

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to open another Whole Foods Market location in the metro North area,” said Laura Derba, president of Whole Foods Market’s North Atlantic Region. “Beverly is a great community, and we are eager to open and to become partners with our new neighbors.”
The store is projected to open in 2016.

It was a pleasure to meet you on Sat. The “lobstah” was delicious. Here is
a mini album from the Plunge. Post any, all or none…
Have a great day,
I thought some of your readers might be interested in following the travels and adventures of my son, Corey Wrinn, a junior at Rockport High School, who is an exchange student in Potsdam, Germany. (Some might know him from RHS JV basketball and baseball.) He has been in Potsdam attending Leibniz-Gymnasium school (http://www.leibniz-gymnasium.de/de/home/index.html) since August and will return back to Cape Ann in June 2012. He’s put together a blog to chronicle his experience. His exchange program is run by the Rotary International Club, which has provided tremendous support for him and the other exchange students in that region. They also organize side trips, which has given Corey the opportunity to explore some of the neighboring countries.
As you can imagine, taking science, math and Spanish classes in German can be quite challenging, but he has picked up the language very well and is able to speak and understand much better these days. I’ve attached his photo. The link to his blog is: http://meineabenteuerindeutschland.blogspot.com.
