I'm curious to see the demographics study. On our street there are 2 houses with new residents. The original residents didn't have any kids, but now just between 2 houses there are 5 new kids at Blossom Hill school.

You forgot to mention that the North 40 Advisory Committee also meets tonight at Town Council chamber. What's the latest on this development?

You're right, Mckenna. We should have also previewed the North 40 Specific Plan Advisory Committee tonight at 6 p.m. inside Council Chambers, 110 E. Main St. We advanced the previous meeting on Aug. 15, 2012. Here's the link to that preview/story. Thank you.
