This is an example of something that might be good to discuss in the SRD yahoogroup once it gets going, cuz I don't want the blog to be completely taken up by city planning stuff, but as it's not up yet, I'll post about it.
OK, so one of the things we talked about last night was the rumor that a California Pizza Kitchen may be interested in the old Firestone building. Me and a couple of other people were going to investigate this and report at the next meeting. If this is true, we may need to mobilize on it quickly. Here's what I've found: SacBizJournal reported on April 14th that CPK is eyeing a downtown location. No specifics about where. The Downtown Sacramento Partnership website has a little blurb about it and gives possible contacts, also with no specifics. So next week we will probably discuss our plan of action on this. The DSP website says they are going to restore the art deco look of it. That's a really cool building that is currently an eyesore, so I'm all for that, but I'd like to know what they're planning to put in there.
