Flash! Milk Pail settlement

Original post made by Max Hauser on Jul 1, 2014

Forwarding from Lenmy Siegel, at City Council meeting, minutes ago:

"At the hearing just now (9:25 pm) Steve Rasmussen of the Milk Pail market and Mike Grehl of Merlone Geier announced a settlement that will allow the Milk Pail to remain in business at its current location if San Antonio Center Phase 2 is built."

Looks like they will vote no/ review

Which means MG Do old plan or even walk. Either way it means milk pail is gone

I don't know what the last couple of comments were getting at (since if either Merlone-Geier proceeded, after an agreement with Milk Pail, or else if M-G were to walk away from Phase 2, either way it would appear that Milk Pail could continue business as before).

But here's breaking news, transmitted by Lenny Siegel from the Council meeting:

"About 12:30 am Wednesday morning the Mountain View City Council voted unanimously, with Councilmember Inks recusing himself from the discussion, for a compromise re-plan of the Merlone-Geier Phase 2 redevelopment at San Antonio Center. They have instructed staff to come up with an alternative based on replacing one office building with housing. Working out the details will take weeks or months, but at least some councilmembers expect the re-shaped development to be approved before final adoption of the San Antonio Precise Plan.

We will not have to circulate referendum petitions. Enjoy your summer!"
