Thanks to the voters who put their trust in me, and my family, friends, and supporters,” Williams told Pasadena Now.“I can’t do it alone, so I look forward to working with a great team of councilmembers to create the policy of the people, and talented staff to implement it,” she said.Williams said her top priority would be safely reopening city businesses with practical rules that evenly apply to everyone.Small and big businesses, schools, places of worship, and fitness centers need the same rules so businesses can plan and people can get back to work, Williams said. “This will also help us stabilize the city budget so we can continue to provide needed services,” she said.Her long-term focus will include enhancing social services so that everyone has an equal chance of having a high quality of life, addressing housing needs that are specific to Pasadena, and returning Pasadena to a leadership role in environmental stewardship.Along with being the council’s only woman, Williams becomes the eight-member board’s third African-American member, and its second Asian-American member.Williams has been a member of several city commissions since 2006, most recently the Planning Commission, on which she served as chair.Her community involvement also includes serving on the boards of several local nonprofits, including Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley, and the Pasadena Educational Foundation.“Above all, I am committed to respecting different points of view in an effort to build consensus — the only way that we can tackle these big problems is together as a community and a region.

OHFC, City working on housing projectsWater, wastewater both are on the agenda

first_img Odessa logo, City Council RGB wide.jpg The Odessa Housing Finance Corporation and the City of Odessa are hard at work trying to build more housing for the city’s growing workforce, but it will still be some time before any of them are built. City Council members most recently approved the rezoning of 12 lots owned by OHFC near Fitch Avenue and Lamesa Street, from general residential to special dwelling districts. This means the houses will have smaller lot widths, allowing for more houses to be built there, with 40-feet wide lots for each house as opposed to the standard 50-feet. OHFC Executive Director Jill Miller said these 12 lots will be built into a cul-de-sac comprised of 12 houses which she said will look like other houses in the neighborhood. Miller couldn’t say yet what kind of income range would be suitable for the houses, as it’s still too early in development and the project hasn’t even gone out for a bid yet, but said they typically build houses for people making anywhere between 60% of the median income to 130% of the median income. Miller said the median income for a family of four in Odessa in 2018 was listed as $73,900. “Our mission is to help people get into what they can afford,” Miller said. “We always are trying to build workforce housing that’s at a good price.” The first step, though, is to get the appropriate infrastructure built for the new cul-de-sac, but Miller said they haven’t gotten a bid package together for that either. Everything is still in the planning stage. “When I started this 18 years ago, we could build a house in 90 days,” Miller said. “And now a house can take six months to nine months. We’re not in the same market conditions we were in 18 years ago. I would hope that we can do it quickly but I never know.” That’s not the only project OHFC is partnering with the city on either. At the July 9 council meeting, the City Council will consider approving another rezoning to a special development district for 33 lots at Fitch Avenue and Avenida de Mexico, just south of their other 12-lot project. “I think it’s a good development, it’ll be comparable to what’s around there,” City Planning Director Randy Brinlee said. OHFC is also working with the city on a 7.65 acre property at the intersection of Rochester Avenue and Seminole Street. City officials think the lot could see up to 40 new houses built for working class Odessans, but not much has happened there since the City Council first voted to move forward with the project in April. Miller said a request for proposals from builders was sent out for the property just this week. And there’s still a 48-acre property in north Odessa that OHFC is working on as well. They already have Eighty Seventh Apartments built at 8640 Hunter Miller Way, but that’s just one piece of the plan. Miller said they also want to build additional apartments and single-family homes on the property. They are already providing the apartment complex with help from the West Texas Food Bank and offer activities like after-school tutoring and art programs, and Miller said they hope they can provide that for the entire community being built. But she said they’re still acquiring funding for the project. “I’m hoping that by the first of next year we’ll be able to get this started,” she said. “I could have told you that eight different times on the first one [Eighty Seventh Apartments] and I would have been wrong.” WhatsApp Pinterest Local News Facebook Twitter Twitter Facebookcenter_img TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 OHFC, City working on housing projectsWater, wastewater both are on the agenda Pinterest WhatsApp Previous articleMichael KleinNext articleMandy Moore’s Mindful Tips for a Well-Balanced, Lively Summer Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Nigeria, Bafana class of ’96 to meet at last

first_img In the final, they overcame Zambia 2-1. The South African squad will be announced on Thursday. However, it is known that it will include Doctor Khumalo, John Moeti, Eric Tinkler and Linda Buthelezi. They beat Zaire 2-0 in the quarterfinals before edging Ivory Coast 4-2 from the penalty spot, after the teams had shared a 2-2 draw, in the semi-finals. 1994 Africa Cup of Nations The 1994 Africa Cup of Nations was hosted by Tunisia. Nigeria finished second in Group A after a 3-0 win over Gabon and a goalless draw with Egypt, which earned them a quarterfinal place. Now, those teams – or as close as you can get to those teams, 18 years down the line – will at last get to meet on the field, with a friendly match between the two countries set to take place in the Nigerian state of Kano on 30 March. Stars of a slightly younger vintage will support them, including Benni McCarthy, South Africa’s all-time international leading goal scorer with 32 to his name. He will be joined by former Bafana Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena, Quinton Fortune and McBeth Sibaya. 10 March 2014 In the quarterfinals, Clive Barker’s charges defeated Algeria 2-1. They then booked a place in the final with a superb 3-0 win over Ghana. Their boycott came about after Nigerian leader General Sani Abacha had ordered the execution of activist Ken Saro Wiwa, which was criticised by then South African President Nelson Mandela. Difference of opinion The Super Eagles, who were the defending champions, claimed that had they participated in the finals, they would have lifted the Cup of Nations’ title. Naturally, the Bafana Bafana class of 1996 felt differently. Defender Benedict Iroha, midfielders Jay-Jay Okocha and Daniel Amokachim, and striker Rashidi Yekini, the tournament’s leading scorer with five goals, were all named in the Team of the Tournament.1996 Africa Cup of Nations Two years later, in South Africa, Bafana Bafana topped Group A after beating Cameroon 3-0 and Angola 1-0 before sliding to a 0-1 loss to Egypt. The Nigerian line-up will feature, among others, Jay-Jay Okocha, Kanu, Emmanuel Amuneke, Daniel Amokachi and Stephen Keshi, the current coach of the Super Eagles, who won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. Two years after democracy came to South Africa, Bafana Bafana won the Africa Cup of Nations on home soil, defeating Tunisia 2-0 in the final in Johannesburg. Missing from that tournament was the Nigerian team, which boycotted the event. Nigerian line-up A Mark Williams brace in the final secured the Africa Cup of Nations title for South Africa on 3 February 1996. South African squad Williams and defender Mark Fish were named in the Team of the Tournament, while John “Shoes” Moshoeu finished as the second highest scorer in the event, with four goals to his name.last_img read more

De Jesus says DLSU setter Cobb still lacks maturity
