Praise for new construction in Marston Hills
I love the openness and the huge windows. This is what the neighborhood needs! And such height! I might be able to see the sea from the bedroom [see “C2 Lofts in Uptown highlight customizable, flex design,” Vol. 5, Issue 5].
I really hope that InDev and C2 lofts can find more properties in Marston Hills to develop in this “green” and Eco-Friendly way.
Certainly, $600,000 is nothing for what you get and it sends a message that Marston Hills is a neighborhood of quality.

Uni Heights mural a gift
I’m driving over to have a look. Anything that is done from joy and the heart is a gift in my opinion. And Habib, how nice to see someone actually give the artists a little money for their creativity [See “Bringing ‘good, positive energy’ to Uptown,” Vol. 5, Issue 5].
I don’t know about the rest of your readers, but I am sick of plain ol’ stucco. A little creativity makes life better for us all!
I hope Habib’s neighbors support him as well as his vision for his store.

Greywater systems required
Hopefully someday soon we will all be required to use greywater for our gardens. Fascinating topic. Excellent article [See “From wastewater to gardens,” Vol. 5, Issue 5].

Hi, Celia. I just read that Chula Vista may require that all new construction have greywater systems installed. Let’s hope that goes through.

Kensington group reaches out to address concerns from reader
Our Kensington Street Gardeners agree parking on Adams Avenue is very difficult if not often impossible. Our only goal in planting the gardens was beautify what we saw as ugly. We are very sorry if we made your wife’s problem worse [see the original story, “Garden Angels of Kensington,” Vol. 5, Issue 4, and Mr. Bruce’s letter to the editor in “Letters,” Vol. 5, Issue 5].
It’s probable the trees and boxes that cause you problems will be radically changed. Please join our efforts to make the situation better including disabled parking. Email me and let’s talk.
