Join the "Friends of the State Theatre" to ensure the grand ole auditorium will be restored and used by the ENTIRE community and region. The city and its spin-off committee have done little to include the public in the renovation of the now-city-owned historic building.

Petrovich tries to derail relocation of existing auto dealers a few blocks down the same street From the Woodland Record: During yet another public display of deception, Sacramento developer and illusionist Paul Petrovich admitted that his Third and Main multiplex is dead. He did so while attempting a desperate pitch to prevent two existing auto dealers from moving a few blocks down the same street on East Main. This all happened at the last City of Woodland Planning Commission meeting on Thursday, May 17. The agenda item discussed was an already-zoned parcel subdivision request and design review of the proposed locations for Hoblit Motors (currently at 333 Main) and Woodland Motors (currently at 1680 East Main). The new location is next to (west of) the Valley Truck and Tractor John Deere dealership, which is located at 2100 East Main. Read more at WoodlandRecord.com.

From the Woodland Record: Woodland City Councilman Art Pimentel is a candidate for the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, District 5. Pimentel gets campaign support from District 3 supervisor Matt Rexroad who is a founding partner of Meridian Pacific, "a one stop shop for political services." Together, they dream up various ways to deliver campaign clichés. For the unimaginative some of their gimmicks appear clever... like imprinted tomato seed packets. And so it was that the little seed giveaway caught the fancy of a local blog (Daily Democrat) and the dynamic duo got their strokes with a report by Katherine Jarvis. Sorry to burst your bubble but promotional products companies like 4imprint, Branders and PrintGlobe have offered such tchotchkes for years. Pimentel's latest campaign stunt is neither clever nor cliché, it's a bonafide gaffe (oxymoron intended). Read the rest at WoodlandRecord.com.

Excerpts from the Yolo Sun article "Yolo court to rule on challenge to city council approval of Petrovich’s Gateway 2 project – part four of a Yolo Sun investigative series:"
A subject of central importance to the relationship between areas of existing commercial zoning (such as the city’s downtown area, the East Street corridor) and the Gateway 2 project — and also key to this new development project’s “program” (please see latter sections of Part Three) — is the concept of: “Adequate retail demand.”
“Adequate retail demand” is the operative measure within diverse planning analyses related to qualifying determinations of the “phase-by-phase” build-out of Gateway 2 — for approval of specific commercial uses.
The basic idea (with this project-impact mitigation scheme), is to create future “market studies” that in some manner evaluate demand for specific, project-proposed commercial uses and measure that demand against the existing availability of such project-proposed uses, which must also — “consist primarily of regional retail uses that do not include entertainment and other uses that would compete with downtown.”
