Seward Coop Groundbreaking

For some fun pictures of the very snowy groundbreaking of the new Seward Coop project, see here.

In terms of the time my office has spent and the sheer amount of community interest and time, this project is far and away the major redevelopment of my term thus far. Robin and I met with the Riverside Market Task Force for months last year and this year, worked for still more months on various site plan issues (especially the now-infamous "T" alley), and enthusiastically supported the multiple strands of City funding that have gone into the project.

It was good to come together and celebrate embarking on this project's next phase with other people who care about it, including Coop staff and board members, neighbors, City staff (including CPED Director Mike Christensen), Seward Redesign staff and board members and others. I look forward to the next ceremony on this site to celebrate its grand opening.
