A special meeting of the Planning Commission to review the site plan for the alternative learning school is happening tonight, Thursday, August 8--on the same night as the Sunset Soiree, a seven store open house to introduce and celebrate three new businesses clustered together in the 400 block of Warren Street--Harvey's Counter, ec•o•sys•tem, and Laloon--and the new location of Kosa. The other shops participating in the festive event, which includes refreshments and music, are OTTO, TK Home & Garden, and Hudson & Laight Gallery.
Two of the shops--Harvey's Counter and Kosa--are located in the newly restored storefronts at 443 Warren Street, and that another cause for celebration. Only months ago, the building looked like this.
Now the "remuddled" storefronts have been restored to their original configuration.
On the topic of scheduling conflicts, all is not lost. The special meeting of the Planning Commission, which Planning Commission chair Don Tillson makes clear in today's Register-Star is not a public hearing and will not entertain public comment, begins at 6:30 p.m. The Sunset Soiree is from 7 to 9 p.m. So, with any luck, you can go the City Hall to observe the proceedings and still have time to be part of the celebration.
