So how did they increase number of employees and reduce overall payroll at the same time? Is this an error or did they increase staff and cut everyone's wages? Or did they get volunteers?

When has the Truckee River had that much water in it?

Any idea what Ten & H20 is? Wow we will have a lot of pizza in a small radius.

We were hopeful about the Kings Inn either being scraped or redone....what an eyesore it has been. Thanks for these updates....keep them coming!

yeah a no-brainier! Center St. should have pull-in diagonal parking on both sides to make more parking for the Midtown shops!

Yes , please reduce Center street to 1 lane. I've witnessed over 10 fender benders on the corner of Center and Taylor, the right hand driver forgets it is one way, goes to turn left on E Taylor, and hits a car in the left hand lane. Also more street parking is needed in this area. Thank You

Thanks to both of you for the reading comprehension assist on that one -- I completely misunderstood their website. Knowing that their new site on 1st Street is in fact their final showroom I look forward to checking it out.

Don, no central pillar and a higher clearance are designed to let flood waters go right under the bridge without impacting the structure. That's why the main support members are raised above the road surface.

Let's hope the new bridge can stand up to the pounding of logs and other debris at 40 MPH during floods. Looks awfully flimsy to me.

hi Sara! They told me they worked over 6 months on perfecting this space, so I am pretty sure the 1st Street address is their final showroom space. That would be a huge time investment for a temporary space!

Sara- Per their website, this is the gallery, the temporary home is listed at the bottom of that blurb- 1 East Liberty.

From their website, they are only using this space temporarily until their actual showroom somewhere else (not listed is complete). Until then you can only visit their temporary location downtown by making an appointment. Any idea where their actual showroom is going to be?

Would there be any wine served? Trust me, when there's a plan to share, we will share the plan. In the mean time, we're just focusing on the rehabs we have that need attention. A few more neglected bad neighbors to be fixed up and happy new residents living there soon.

Dear marmot G, Thank you for your comments. We seem to be talking past one another and generating a lot more heat than light. I propose we get together for a neighborhood meeting where you could present your plans for our neighborhood and we can discuss them like adults.

Now, don't pick on Griff so much, he's got good intentions, and it the people who live here, owners and renters alike, that make it better. He is right, we did have an unsavory character at our Wheeler place. When we were made aware of sketchy activity by our neighbors, we quickly took care of it, and that tenant was evicted. I did want to say that I did rent to the guy who blew up the apartment on Sinclair. He was a gulf war vet, struggling with coming home, and was in a program to try and help these men re-enter society. I thought that his service to our country warranted a second chance. Chime in if you disagree, but I would do it again.

Check who owns what when, Giff. Marmot had no ownership or property management roll when 521 blew up.

Doofus, I don't respond to attacks from individuals without the courage to identify themselves.

Mike, For information on the Raydon lot splits call Planning and ask about "Marmot Parcel Maps Re:PAR14-00017 thru PAR 14- 00028" The problems at Cliff Young's property at 251 Thoma St were indeed one of the primary factors leading to the formation of the Wells Addition Neighborhood Association. It has nothing to do with the Varmint problem.

Griff, not to throw stones, but has your house been painted in the last 30 years? What about your son's festering unfinished eyesore project kitty corner from you? Do you approve what the Marmots did next door to you at the norious Cat Pee House? What are YOU doing to improve your neighborhood? Dude, CPH was not part of the Young family portfolio.

Also, where did you hear about the 12 lot-splittings? I thought the purpose of our neighborhood plan was to prevent this? I would definitely have concerns over that...which is why I mentioned above, were always keeping an eye on them How do you know these duplexes will be cookie cutter? I would love more info. Im a fan of infill projects like the Haberaes, but they have to be done right.
