The Dave Luna Urban Planet Forum Meet , Sat. May 4th, 10 AM-noon @ Luna Llena Taqueria (300 James Robertson Parkway)

Recommended Posts

I assume you're meeting on Saturday at Provence at 10:00AM. Is that correct? I hope to discuss a possible Chattanooga forum meet in October then.

Can someone send me an email on the location and time. Obviously, I've yet to got to one of those forum meets and I think I finally might be able to make one.

Hopefully there will be one of these when I come back home for a visit in January. It'll only be my 2nd forum meeting I've attended and really wanna see the progress. And, where is this place at, gimmie an intersection.

We are still holding the meetings starting around 10:00 AM on the first Saturday of every month at Provence, which is the coffee shop in the Public Library. The coffee shop is located at the SE corner of Church and 6th and there are doors on both streets. We look forward to seeing you there in January!

Please note that the location is back at Provance Bread in the library on Church Street. Some of the old core people that do not post still come as well as the old folks like "Its Just Dave". Did I say old, I meant ancient. Just kidding Dave..BTW, Hope you are doing good. :fun::lol: . We have not had any new blood for a while.

Just a reminder about the meet this Saturday @ 10 am at Provence in the Main Library DT on Church St. I do know there will be an update on Siggy from William. There may be no news or some news but an update at least.

Good meet today adn thanks for showing up.

We had about a dozen, including Bzorch and another from the Charrette, WW, myself, producer2, jaxboro, skyscrapergeek and company, Hankster, bwithers, and nashvegas.

We had an update on 1808 West End which is a 15 story office building being converted to another hotel, the Eakin twins towers property will be vacant in Feb 09 for the possible start of that project. Best One tires will relocate their retail entity to West End and the warehouse goes to Murfreesboro Rd. Lake Palmer still has water flowing into it which may be a spring. We dont know for sure. I did talk to someone with Bovis Land lease adn he said they would start on the actual construction very soon.

WW updated on the Siggy, but I am sorry to say we cannot say anything right now other than Tony G. is doing all possible to make this baby rise.

We had a lengthy discussion on the new Convention Center. The only news is that there may be news in a couple of weeks and I didn't know that a hotel company had bought land on the Greyhound side for a hotel. So there may be two large hotels to accompany the center.

Was there any discussion on how/when the design team will be selected? Will there still be a design competition?

I will try to answer as best I can on the CC thread instead of this one.

Where's my dang hair! Geez, no wonder I wear that silly cap.

I had a great time today, guys. It was, as always, good to see everyone. We had a beautiful morning for a nice walk around town and Ron, great pictures as always. Just think how nice things will look with a few more stories added to some projects and the trees and flowers out in the spring.

Anyone else see a meet at the Panera in our future? Sure love that outdoor dining area.
