It's Hippie Bohemian Attorney Day at City Council
Today's the day we get to find out if that is going to happen.
Houston City Council is set to decide today whether to sell a block of Bolsover in Rice Village to a developer for $1.5 million, after months of debate among nearby residents.

Developer Lamesa Village Ltd. is planning a mixed use, mid-rise condominium and retail development called Sonoma on both sides of Bolsover, between Kelvin and Morningside. If the council approves the sale, Lamesa plans to close the 2400 block of Bolsover to create a pedestrian plaza.


"There are strong opinions on both sides and I have to make a decision in this," said Councilwoman Anne Clutterbuck, whose district includes Rice Village. "It's a classic case of reasonable people looking at the same facts and coming to different conclusions."

I figure this gets approved without too much dissent. The Chron editorialized against the sale last week, but I think it'll go through. We'll know soon enough.

Completely off-topic: Am I the only one who thinks a name like Anne Clutterbuck belongs only in a Harry Potter book?
