Plans move forward for Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Farmington

first_img admin Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window) Farmington Planning Commissioners voted Monday to move forward plans that will bring a Tropical Smoothie Cafe to a Grand River shopping center, but with multiple conditions.Most importantly, commissioners wanted assurances that the owner of the World Wide Center would follow through with repairs to the existing building, in addition to putting up a 1700-square-foot building on the east side of the parking lot.Consultant Matt Parks of OHM Advisors said while engineering and planning reviews found a number of issues that need to be addressed, none was serious enough to stop the project. Among the items he discussed were bringing sidewalks and ramps up to Americans with Disabilities Act standards and adding more detail about stormwater drainage, building materials, and building canopy clearances.“Landscaping is the area that probably needs the most work,” Parks said. “What was submitted falls very much short of what was required.”Plans show removal of 15 out of 16 trees in place along Grand River, which Parks said would be find but with additional landscaping features added. He suggested ornamental trees, a hedgerow, or landscape terrace. He also suggested plantings around the building.The city’s Zoning Board of Appeals granted a variance that will allow for the removal of 37 parking spots and a reduction in the number of drive-through “stacking” spaces from the required 10 to seven. Parks said the reduction in parking spaces will likely improve circulation on the site and make some spaces more accessible.Public hearingOne resident spoke during a public hearing on the proposal. Robert Kull lives on Whittaker Drive, not far from the center. He said that lighting from the center spills over into his neighborhood, an issue that the plan addresses.“That’s been a problem for five years,” he said, adding that he doesn’t have confidence the property owner will address issues unless they’re brought up during the hearing.Kull was also concerned about sound from the drive-through speakers, which are pointed toward the existing building and asked for a requirement that sound won’t carry into neighborhoods. Noting that visitors to the Panera restaurant east of the center park on Whittaker, he asked whether the city could restrict parking on the street.Kull’s request that the approval include a restriction on business hours was part of the final motion for approval, along with a raft of other conditions that included items listed on the planning and engineering reviews.“This is currently proposed as a Tropical Smoothie Cafe, but it may be something different in the future,” he said.Planning Commissioner Steve Majoros asked whether the commission had control over business hours. Economic and Community Development Director Kevin Christiansen said commissioners could add “any reasonable conditions it deems necessary. That can certainly include things like how a business operates, hours of operation included. You have that latitude as a planning commission.”Majoros also asked whether the commission could make improvements to the existing building a condition of approval for the outbuilding. However, World Wide Center representative John Moran said the work must be done concurrently, in order to complete the building on time for the new tenant.He suggested making the improvements part of the scope of work for the building permits, so that Certificates of Occupancy would be “contingent on the full scope of the work.”“We understand the safeguard,” he said. “We just ask for consideration, so we can do it, in both cases, sooner than later.”READ MORE: TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE MAY MOVE TO FARMINGTON STRIP CENTER Reported bylast_img read more

Bringing Wireless Gigabit Networks to American Communities

first_imgSiklu,a developer of millimeter-wave technology, and Las Vegas, Nevada based Broavada Communications, LLC, a subsidiary of the national technology consulting firm, The Broadband Group, have announced a partnership to accelerate the deployment of millimeter wave Gigabit wireless networks. Siklu offers small, millimeter wave based, multi-Gigabit radio solutions, applicable to a wide range of Ethernet deployment scenarios. The products are ideal for communities that require Gigabit connectivity, but do not enjoy the economies of scale to “rebuild” pure fiber networks.This unique partnership will bring new opportunities to the industry and provide the excellence needed to meet the needs of next generation connectivity. The personality and destiny of any great city or community is in how it defines its ability to communicate across many disciplines. This partnership is poised to significantly advance that agenda. The Siklu multi-Gigabit throughput radios are the market’s most cost-effective solutions for short-range fiber like wireless point-to-point links. The technology is based on radio frequency transmission in the unlicensed V-Band and the lightly licensed E-Band. These run in the 60-80 GHz range. They are based on more than 30 patents, and include the first SiGe E-band chip and other unique achievements. Siklu has sold and deployed tens of thousands of radios worldwide to service providers, mobile operators, wireless security network operators, and enterprises.Kirshenbaum (Siklu’s Co-Founder, Chairman and President) noted “We recognize the significance that Gigabit enabled telecommunications facilities will inevitably have on how we communicate and the way we live our lives. The benefits that abundant bandwidth provides should not be limited to only those communities that have the economics supporting a pure fiber network build out,” said Tom Reiman, the President of Broavada Communications and Founder of The Broadband Group.   “While The Broadband Group maintains its independent role as a neutral advisor to our clients, we recognize the need to bring innovative new products and services to the industry through Broavada Communications.  Siklu is an ideal partner to advance that agenda. Broavada and Siklu have joined forces at a critical time in the growing relevance of broadband infrastructure and services.”  Reiman added, “Our goal is to completely understand the operational, financial, and regulatory issues that must be addressed to make certain homes, offices, and Community Anchor Institutions have immediate access to the most advanced communication infrastructure possible.  Once this is achieved, we see Siklu finding a place in the market with innovative service providers throughout North America.””Working together, Siklu and Broavada (The Broadband Group) will find and select communities that might benefit from this infrastructure and its services. Reiman adds, “We will determine how these facilities might best be managed, connected, and designed to serve residential and commercial customers in the target communities. If we do this right, we recognize the significant influence this may also have on regional economic development efforts.” said Tom Reiman, the President of Broavada Communications and Founder of The Broadband Group.last_img read more

He makes sure everything flows perfectly.”Here, Lee paused in mid-thought to impart some positive spin.“Without him, it let our other guards step up and figure things out,” he said. “Even though they’re freshmen, they got the time to be point guards without Tyler and figure things out on their own. For us, it helped us a whole lot more.”Briscoe overcame his wobbly start to score 18 points and demonstrated his versatility with seven rebounds, but he also fouled out in 27 minutes of playing time. Murray, too, opened the game ominously – “The first half, I thought he was non-existent,” Calipari said, but ultimately totaled 16 points.Despite their ranking and 7-0 record, Kentucky heads to UCLA for a Thursday game less experienced than last season and more vulnerable. Unless Ulis heals in the interim, the Wildcats’ first true road game of the season could prove a daunting assignment, despite their dominance of the Bruins a year ago.“If he’s not healthy, it’s bad timing,” Calipari said. “But we’ll see. He was half coaching on the bench, telling me who to take out.”When Calipari asked which player he wanted replaced, Ulis replied, “You know who.”He probably did. But Calipari’s alternatives were limited Monday night. Tyler Ulis was unavailable.Tim Sullivan can be reached at (502) 582-4650, tsullivan@courier-journal.com or @TimSullivan714 on Twitter.

Mandatory Credit: Mark Zerof-USA TODAY SportsNov 30, 2015; Lexington, KY, USA; Kentucky Wildcats guard Jamal Murray (23) dribbles the ball against Illinois State Redbirds forward MiKyle McIntosh (11) in the second half at Rupp Arena. Mandatory Credit: Mark Zerof-USA TODAY SportsLEXINGTON, Ky. – No. 1 needs its No. 3.Kentucky without Tyler Ulis is a sports car without a steering wheel. It is an orchestra without a conductor. It is a collection of valuable parts with a whole lot of assembly required.Playing without its primary and most experienced point guard Monday night, the nation’s top-ranked team moved in fits, starts and sometimes in reverse. The Wildcats’ 75-63 victory over Illinois State was a testament to superior talent, but it was also a reminder of how the absence of a single player can spell the difference between cohesion and chaos.“Without Tyler, it’s obvious we’re not the same team,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “I mean, unless you were watching another game.”Resisting Ulis’ willingness to test the hyperextended right elbow he suffered Friday, Calipari started three freshmen guards against the Redbirds and watched them combine for 12 turnovers – three of them by Isaiah Briscoe in the game’s first 89 seconds – in a game that was tied at the half, 31-31.Instant Analysis | UK wins ugly without UlisBriscoe, Jamal Murray and Charles Matthews are all gifted guys – Briscoe and Murray both project as first-round draft choices by NBAdraft.net – but though they tower over the (purportedly) 5-foot-9 Ulis, they have yet to attain his stature in terms of basketball efficiency.“It was a big difference,” Briscoe said. “We missed him out there, of course. He’s a leader and our floor general, so we missed him today.”In the scheme of a long season, that difference is not a serious knock on these freshmen at this stage of their development. The list of college point guards comparable to Tyler Ulis likely numbers in single digits. The list of those who have made Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski gush is shorter still.To review:“He is in complete control of his team,” Coach K said after Kentucky’s 74-63 victory over his Blue Devils on Nov. 17. “Competing against him, I admired his presence throughout the game and his face throughout the game. It was the face of a winner and a really good winner.”Despite his modest size, Ulis typically stands out as the quickest guy on the floor. But that favorable first impression inevitably gives way to a broader appreciation of his instincts, his judgment and the rare ability to make the game appear to slow down even as he’s speeding up.As a freshman last season, consigned to Calipari’s second platoon, Ulis was credited with 135 assists against just 38 turnovers, a ratio that improved to 15-4 during the NCAA tournament. Briscoe and Murray may have higher ceilings, but Ulis is the one Kentucky fans want running the show in a tight spot. (At the risk of belaboring a painful point, it’s almost inconceivable that the Wildcats could have created three straight shot-clock violations had Ulis been in charge in the decisive minutes last spring against Wisconsin.)

BVB’s Michael Zorc speaks about Manchester City’s clause to get Jadon…

first_imgJadon Sancho signed for Borussia Dortmund in August 2017 for a fee of around €10m. The youngster had grown impatient at Manchester City and the English club had little choice other than trying to get the best deal available.Since then Sancho has had the success he may well have expected. Not only is he a regular in the Dortmund team, but he’s also earned himself a new contract and broken into Gareth Southgate’s squad. Things are very bright for the youngster, who is still just 18 years of age.Manchester City may regret some aspects of the situation, but what they won’t regret is getting themselves a clause on the player’s future. These clauses are often vague, sometimes purposely so, and, following recent reports about the City clause, BVB’s Michel Zorc has had his say.Speaking in a press conference on Thursday, and quoted by Fussball Transfers, the Dortmund chief said: “Basically, we do not disclose any contract details. But in this case, Manchester City would have a maximum of matching rights.”Embed from Getty ImagesThat means they’d have the chance to match any acceptable offer for the player.Zorc said he doesn’t think the clause is relevant because his club would have to agree to sell first, and they obviously plan to keep Sancho.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Board ‘awaiting new offer before end of January’ from Chelsea –…

first_imgOpenly admitting that his side were struggling to finish, Frank Lampard’s attacking woes weren’t helped when Tammy Abraham came off injured against Arsenal. Now in dire need of reinforcement up front, it isn’t surprising to learn, via Foot Mercato, that Chelsea could be in the market for a new striker.They already were, according to previous reports, but this latest development has forced their hand a bit, and their big target remains Lyon’s Moussa Dembélé.Already having a €40m offer turned down, the Stamford Bridge side are now expected to return for more, with Lyon’s board ‘awaiting a new offer before the end of the January window’.Despite Jean-Michel Aulas appearing stubborn in his stance of not selling Dembélé, Foot Mercato believe the Ligue 1 side ‘wouldn’t be that firm if a very important offer were to arrive’.Chelsea appear the likeliest to make it, especially with Gérard Houllier (who acts as an advisor for the French club) currently ‘exchanging with them’, but it all depends on Manchester United, who are also keeping an eye on the 23-year-old, as they could also join the fray after scouting the striker a couple of times recently.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Guys In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

Ubisoft unveils Rainbow Six European League

first_imgFollowing the recent announcement of the new Rainbow Six North American League, Ubisoft has revealed the next regional offering: the Rainbow Six European League.The Rainbow Six Siege league is a successor to the previous Rainbow Six Pro League, and is part of an effort to develop regionalised leagues for the tactical first-person shooter.Image credit: UbisoftRELATED: Ubisoft announces Rainbow Six North American LeagueThe new Rainbow Six esports global structure will feature four regional leagues across Europe, North America, South America, and Asia-Pacific. Each regional league will span three stages of league play, each lasting five weeks, and teams will earn points towards the global standings.This will qualify teams for Six Major events, and lead into the season-ending Six Invitational world championship. There will also be a European League Championship featuring the top four teams as aggregated across the three regular-season stages.The Rainbow Six European League will begin play on June 22nd and feature 10 teams, with the eight Pro League teams carried over along with the top two teams from the European Challenger League. Because of the transition from the Pro League, the 2020 season will only include two regular season stages, rather than the normal three.RELATED: FACEIT to control Rainbow Six Siege esports in North AmericaUbisoft will also expand the European Rainbow Six Siege esports ecosystem by creating a clearer path to the European League through national leagues and the Challenger League.Along with the announcement of the new league, Ubisoft has also announced the creation of a new Paris studio for European League and Challenger League broadcasts. Players will still compete remotely online, but broadcast talent will be centralised at the Paris studio. Various broadcast enhancements have been announced for the new league.The new studio will not be fully completed in time for start of play on June 22nd, so viewers will see a “light” version of the studio until current circumstances surrounding the pandemic allow for construction to be completed.Esports Insider says: Rainbow Six esports has grown significantly in recent years, and Ubisoft’s new regional approach should help generate even more local excitement and interest. We’re looking forward to seeing this new Paris studio in action.Find out about the ESI Digital Summitlast_img read more
