Getting Parking Samples

on
When going about trying to understand the parking dynamics downtown ‘broad-view’ metrics don’t reveal the reality on the scene! A planner would need to drill down much, much more, as I have done. I went in to every shop, about 3 years ago, just before I started this blog. I asked if there were any […] [Read More]

All The Good Things

on
P&Z are the unsung heroes! Though I technically find default with the use of the’ most prime’ space in Westport for the Gunn house, I had never been quite so happy to watch the streaming video of the P&Z meeting on Thursday – how hard working, efficient and thoughtful all the members, taking an upbeat […] [Read More]

World Not Coming to End, no cause for alarm

on
One of my favorite things to do is to go out in the rain; walking or riding, or just enjoying the relief from muggy times with water falling all around. What could be more natural. Nowadays, the post-modern era, I find it useful however, when a downpour begins, to put a small bucket of water […] [Read More]

Thinking back to holidays past our lives are rendered in a linear way, year by year, leading back to the American Revolution. […] [Read More]

Furry Friends

on
I’m still getting acquainted with my new neighborhood on the other side of downtown. Heavily wooded would be an understatement. There would seem to be a proliferation of furry little creatures, and some not so little.   The other morning someone knocked at the door, or so I thought. I nearly jumped out of my […] [Read More]

MOU Bait and Switch – Baron’s not done deal

on
As a neutral, outside of the process, observer of the Baron’s South Senior Development Plan I see things running off the rails. For the record: I love seniors, — and think that they deserve every possible respect and opportunity to live in Westport. However, I see a pattern of bait and switch from town officials […] [Read More]

The Bulletin Board — every little town has one except W

on
Now — there is no longer a bulletin board downtown. We need a new one and it should go in a little kiosk at Jesup Green. A town center without a bulletin board is like MTV without the music. The students over at Toquet Hall and Remy Chevalier brought this to my attention during the […] [Read More]
