Precinct 6 Councilor Linda Calla had one of those tough decisions that public officials have to make Tuesday night with the scheduling of two meetings at the same time: the regularly scheduled Council meeting and a Precinct 6 community meeting to discuss with residents the redevelopment of the Temple Tifereth Israel property. Not being able to be in two places at once, Calla attended the Precinct 6 meeting first and then traveled quickly over to the Cummings School where she was at her seat for the second half ofÂ K.R.T.â€™s Appraisal informational forum.
It was a good example of a councilor being dedicated to her position and Callaâ€™s extensive background and work experience in real estate are assets when the discussion is about the value of homes and the housing market in todayâ€™s economy.
The Temple Tifereth Israel project (constructing a 43-unit residential apartment building) looks to be a beneficial one for residents and will beautify that area of Veterans Road. Councilor Calla is keeping abreast of the progress being made and watching out for the townâ€™s best interests.
