From the ashes, a park takes shape

  • Sep 26, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 2:10PM

Restoration of the strawberry pier property on Weaver Avenue is planned for next year. For a former landmark, it may be time for a return to nature. City officials are hoping a 4.2-acre parcel at the end of Weaver Avenue will transition back to its former state as a wildlife refuge and also serve as a public park. Removal of man-made structures at the former strawberry plant property are tentatively slated for next fall. “It’s really a top project,” said Peter Namtvedt Best, associate planner with the city. “It will bring back a half acre of estuary and a half acre of riparian forest.”

Sun: energy’s new frontier

  • Oct 5, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 2:09PM

Today’s solar tour is twice the size of last year’s inaugural event. Nudged by an autumn breeze, broken clouds swim above the head of Stair Dickerman. As they pass by, shadow and sunlight slowly exchange places, until finally the landscape at his Roberts Road farm glows pale yellow. The rays penetrate his wife’s greenhouse. They reach ripening pumpkins on the hillside, and a few dozen chickens strutting in the grass. It’s too late in the year for those rays to produce a suntan. But gathered by the free-standing solar panels at the north end of Dickerman’s property, they will produce enough energy to ease the strain on the environment, the power grid and, in the long run, his wallet. “I’d rather have my money invested in something like this than have it sitting in the bank,” he said, looking at the panels and tugging at his dusty pockets. “At least I know this is real.”
