    One of the oldest downtown buildings is now in new hands. Four local people last week purchased the property at 228 Xenia Avenue, currently home to Sam & Eddie’s Open Books and Asanda Imports.

  • GMHA gardens on chopping block

    Daniel Pearson planted a low-maintenance cover crop of violets in the backyard of his Lawson Place residence. The violets don’t need to be mowed, keep the ground from getting waterlogged and provide a tasty treat to Pearson, he said. Pearson worries herbicides will be used to kill the vegetation, which is out of compliance with the property owners, Greene Metropolitian Housing Authority. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Patricia High is dejected because she has until July 1 to transplant most of her beautiful garden at her Lawson Place unit, or the Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority will remove the plantings.

  • Solar goes dark, for now

    A field of solar panels won’t soon sprout on the Glass Farm as planned, though a local solar farm is still possible.

  • Couples purchase Xenia Ave. property

    Two local couples — Asanda Imports owners Lee Kibblewhite and Molly Lunde and Brendan Comerford and Christy Lewis — recently purchased the property at 228 Xenia Avenue, currently home to Sam & Eddie’s Open Books and Asanda Imports.

    The “French fry truck” will no longer enjoy prime frontage along Xenia Avenue downtown. It was ordered not to “obstruct access or sightlines” to other businesses.

  • Senior housing off, for now

    An effort to build affordable senior housing on the Barr property downtown was thwarted last month when the project was denied its request for 2012 federal tax credits. However, project organizers consider the set-back only a delay, as they plan to re-apply in 2013.
