First some pinheads on the Nevada City Council refused to reimburse race organizers for the Amgen Tour of California. (Joining other residents, we rallied and donated $250 to help out; what else are you going to do? Stiff the hard-working race organizers, like the city did?)
Then there’s the 800-square-foot “granny” (AKA more like a home) that was being erected without a public hearing within about 10 feet of a poor neighbor’s house without input. And while the process isn’t right, it’s “legal,” we’re firmly told. I suspect it will require a lot of plantings to block that “view.” “Gee, thanks for nothing!”
Now welcome to the streets of Nevada City, where the crepe myrtles are in bloom — but the streets have been ripped apart for months, thanks to a new water main and a new gas line from PG&E — all at the same time. It’s a big mess.
We joke about the “temporary no parking” signs that, in fact, are dated from 5/8 to 8/31. PG&E now thinks it will last until September. There’s loose asphalt all over the street.
Come visit if you dare, but it’s going to be dusty and dirty — just like the old west. That “new” street cleaner is nowhere to be seen.
The piles of rocks, rebar and debris would make a trip down the street unfit for a baby carriage, let alone riders in the Amgen Tour of California.
Our neighbors are all joking about “Quanitytown.” LOL.
