Where's the NEWS here? Just another freebie for a small niche web site. Stop turning 12309 into Disneyland.

Now here's where Type A personalities, and in this case our self proclaimed 'Type A Lady' leave others in their wake to get harmed. Her choice to defer action is stupid, shortsighted, and potentially dangerous for individuals AND THE CITY.

Aside from harming individuals, if the city acts as landlord collecting rent on the pavilion aren't they bound to either stop renting the space, or, remediate the problem as soon as possible. Doesn't not addressing the problem immediately put the city at risk of being sued. Conversely; hasn't her solution, now made public, lessened the appeal of the pavilion, thus curtailing bookings.

This is why Type A Lady should have NO ROLE IN GOVERNANCE

If he was involved in constituent services that day, i say he deserves SOME SLACK here. DAILY's correct, what about the wannabe following him.

This is forward thinking, 'out of the box,' apparently non-patronage administering. Thank you mayor.

Why is Gillan so indifferent? Couldn't he come up with a low key comment that at least recognizes the need of a neighborhood. I think his 'no comment' stance needs investigating.

Will it use universal design features.

Could parking areas be covered with solar panels. This generates more sellable energy while lessening snow removal efforts

The ''RIGHT TO RISK'' clauses in the 1983 Rehabilitation Act, and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act should be at play here. Residual limb length plays a large part in residual function and balance. I wonder if a properly worded waiver would protect the operator.

We need to remember; although we have the ''right to risk,'' it only applies to ourselves as individuals, not others around us. One needs to take into account unintended projectiles their risk might create.

There was a time in Rotterdam when residents knew it was 3:30PM. The Mica, Maqua, and Schenectady Chemical plants all chose this time to 'off gas' their buildings. We could all smell the admixture. This is a great repurposing of one of those buildings.

If the residential makeup of this building is as diverse as has been reported, I hope the more cognitively or emotionally challenged residents are receiving the attention and protection they need to be safe.
