Stod's Update

Last August I wrote about the Stod's Batting Cages redevelopment proposal put forward by Pallis Properties. This was before astroturf took over my life! Aah, those carefree days!

People have been asking about whatever happened to the plan to build a Fitness Center there, state-of-the-art, with a coffee shop and room for a large daycare facility...sadly, as we were informed by Dorothy Bracken at the Candidate's Forum meeting last month, the deal has been withdrawn. There was an audible gasp from the audience--it had seemed like a definite go. Neighbors were starting to feel ownership of the community's center again, and just like that it slipped through our fingers.

Kudos to Dorothy, Dan and Alex who shepherded this project on behalf of our community and let's hope we can continue to find projects with as much promise.
