Broadway-Brommer: The Destructive Project
- November 4, 2013 The City began to stake out the construction of Broadway-Brommer the week of November 4th. By Tuesday of the following week (11/12), it was apparent that the low bid contractor (ProVen Management) had big plans. Mown areas began to pop up all over the northern portion of the greenbelt, then fencing. Go HERE to see the beginning of the gentrification of nature.
- November 18, 2013 The scale of the project began to be very apparent, very quickly. Just 2 weeks after the work began, the ancient soil of the coastal terrace prairie grassland was dug up, turned over, shoved around and eventually stockpiled to be placed somewhere else than where it had been the past millennia...or so. Progress is our most important product. Even proponents of BB were heard to exclaim "I had no idea!" when viewing the enormity of the rearrangement of the greenbelt. Go HERE to see, sadly.
