  1. This property could be the future site of an award winning residential neighborhood.
    I see innovative mixed housing and green space with walking trails down to the basin shopping.
    The cinder cone relic could be reinforced and remain as an attraction.
    (They use the old kilns as galleries at Gladding McBean in Lincoln.)
    A bunch of cute bungalows and gardens would enliven and beautify that area.
