Rumblings & Bumblings Answers: Downtown Plaque, Westchester Mystery

New, 8 comments

This week's R & B is all screwed up because the answers weren't addressed till today. If you have question for next week's Rumbling & Bumblings, say hello.

DOWNTOWN: To find a definitive answer to the question about that plaque outside the YMCA, the question was sent off to a land use attorney and a downtown resident. "I can't say for sure, but my best guess is that it's a marker used by property owners that have "quasi-public" areas on their property, like extended sidewalks," he writes in an email. "For example, the Downtown Y has an outdoor seating area, and a plaza-area that leads to the bridge into the Bonaventure. So, their property gets used by people who are not tenants or patrons of that private property. The little plaques are probably intended as a notice that the property owner and their security people can limit people from loitering on their site." Thanks for input.

WESTCHESTER: A reader asked that's going on across from Playa Del Oro. Sadly, no one wrote in to tell inform everyone about the dirt plot. We'll go investigate this week and find out what's up. Also, there was some slight confusion about whether this was Westchester or Playa Del Rey.
