Present: S'Ahmisa Warwick, Bradford McMillian, Ginger Grey, Ilila Peterson, Brandon Peterson, Cameron Smith, Suzanna McMillian
"Congratulations again for every one's successful re-election to the hood council. For the next four simyears we will work together again to ensure that Apple Valley is a thriving hood suitable for our residents."
"And congratulations to the Peterson's who are having another set of twins!"
"Really? Wow! Congrats!"
"Let's start this meeting with the results from the community development project we have been investigating." S'Ahmisa said from the screen as she video conferenced into the meeting. "I read the reports from every sim, but let's start from the beginning."
"The overall plan is to redevelop the community. There has been an increase in demand for single family housing and with the new technology, Lot Adjuster, we have been able to provide single family housing options that fit into our terrain. However, we can't work on everything, so based on the findings from each officer, we will vote on which area to start with. Bradford, let's start with your findings about the proposed Cottersmore Gardens."
"Cottersmore Gardens is a proposed district in south Apple Valley. Based on the location and property values, the population would consist of upper class society members. The red area represents where the residential area would be. I propose three luxury town homes with modest backyards, four bedrooms and a turn of a century style. The town homes would be flanked by two mixed used commercial areas based on designs from TS3 Sunset Valley. The developments would consist of hotel, upscale restaurants, boutiques and office space. There is interest from SiMusic to establish a recording studio and A.Pentregnani wants to set up another bridal boutique."
"Thank you Bradford. Ginger, you investigated the new warehouse district, correct?"
"Yes, I also investigated the status of Grayson Brownstones and Jessup Street Rowhomes as well. The current residences of both apartment complexes are in favor of separating their units into single family residences that would allow them to fully purchase and renovate the units. I propose that we go forward with the separation."
"I agree, any members disagree?" S'Ahmisa asked. "Ok, then the proposal for separation has been approved. Now, let's continue with the warehouse district proposal."
"The proposed warehouse district is still in its infancy stages. Only residential apartment complexes are proposed for the area. One would be a modern loft apartment complex suited for professionals, the other would be lower cost apartments with salvaged items suitable for sims desiring grungy environments and those who are in need of housing assistance. There has been some interest to ensure that all sims have access to housing regardless of their financial situation."
"Thank you, Ginger, for your report. Ilila, please explain your findings about the single family homes surrounding the school."
"The proposed district still doesn't have a name, but we have been calling it the academy district after the school. There has been an increased demand for single family housing and the area surrounding the school is perfectly suited for single family homes. The redeveloped park has brought a lot of attention to that area and it would be perfect for single family homes with modest backyards and three bedrooms. There are already a few homes located there that are in need of renovation and have a grant for buyers, however once those homes are sold, we can increase inventory. The area already has great amenities including the school, park and community fairgrounds. Once the Cottersmore Gardens plan is approved and finished, then residents would also have access to shopping and entertainment options within walking distance."
"Thank you all for your reports. We must vote on which project to pursue first."
