Jeff Kenny did a nice job on the coverage of the Entry Level Housing discussion at the Town Council. I’ve included the scans of the article here if you want to read it. (I only included the portion discussing Entry Level Housing.) I think you can blow up the scans on the right so they are legible.
I’m pleased that things are moving forward, but frustrated that they have moved as slowly as they have up to this point. All of the sudden we’re in a crunch to get things done since the grant deadline is November 2nd. Because the decision finally came down to putting the development on my property, I’ve been thrust into the position of getting the variances, abatements, etc. in my name. Most of this is going to require special meetings due to the timing. Not a big deal, but it’s all about time…
Jeff also did a side bar article on the property and my history with it. It was cut up a bit as it appeared in the paper, so I’ve included the text here instead of doing scans. That also let me put links into some of the things he mentions in case you want to follow up. The side bar article follows:
I am again mining from one of Jeff Kenney’s Throw Back Thursday articles. Dr. Greg Easterday is one of our founder’s grandsons and as such commissioned Easterday Construction Co., Inc. to complete an addition and renovation project at his dental clinic at 303 North Main Street in Culver. Unfortunately this isn’t one I can shed a lot of light on since it was well before the beginning of my tenure with Easterday Construction. At that time there were still several employee’s that had the Easterday name here including an uncle and cousin of Greg.
Who you’re seen with and who you associate with say a lot about you. Both the gentlemen in the article I copied below have been associated with Easterday Construction Co., Inc. Bobby Cooper, is actually Robert Cooper the third and when he worked with us, he was known as B3 since is father, Robert Cooper the second, has been with us somewhere around forever. Bobby was a “good kid” and we had talked to him about considering apprenticeship classes when the job opportunity came up at Clay. He had attended classes to be a fireman and had served as a volunteer. We were disappointed to see him leave, but still proud to have been associated with him. Fortunately I have not had to see him in action as a firefighter, but I have seen him first hand as an EMT helping with my grandparents and have been pleased with his compassion and professionalism.
Art Jacobs was partially responsible for our signing up for Insurance Services with Gibson Insurance. Art always dealt with us honestly and with a desire to know our business. I always felt like I was being informed rather than pressured for a sale. Again, I’ve been fortunate enough NOT to have seen Art in action as a fire fighter, but I have seen him discuss safety issues on many occasions and I have no doubt that he is composed, professional and knowledgeable in his position as Captain of the Plymouth Fire Department.
Reading the article below, I was not surprised that these two individuals would stop and help someone in distress. They take their compassion for the communities they serve personally. I am proud to know them and say that Easterday Construction Co., Inc. has been associated with them.
