Episode 75 des Walk-Män-Podcasts: Daniela Kling ist ganz schlicht "zu gesund. "Zu-gesund" genau genommen. Ihr Lebensmotto: Love it - Change it - or leave it! Sozusagen: Akzeptiere wie es ist, dann beschwer dich nicht, oder verändere was dir nicht gefällt! Die aktuelle Folge dreht sich darum, wie man es gerade in der Zeit der Corona-Einschränkungen schafft, das eigene Gewicht radikal zu senken und die Kurve zu bekommen zu einem gesünderen, aktiven Lebensstil. Daniela Kling aus dem hessischen Steinau hat es geschafft, fast einen ganzen Zentner "verloren" durch Umstellung alter Essgewohnheiten und den Einstieg in den Sport. Sie erzählt in dieser Episode, was die Beweggründe dafür waren, welche Fehler sie anfangs beging und wie sie letztlich für sich den richtigen Weg fand. Seit kurzer Zeit ist Daniela Kling nun nebenberuflich selbstständig mit ihrer Firma "zu-gesund" und möchte somit ihren Mitmenschen helfen, ein leichteres und gesünderes Leben zu führen. Zu ihrem Angebot zählen u.a. folgende Punkte (Achtung: keine bezahlte Werbung): Mobile Gesundheitsberatung mit Einkaufs-Coaching, Mealprep-Schulung und Begleiten auf den ersten Schritten zu mehr Bewegung. Ihre Beratungen macht sie persönlich, aber auch über Telefon, Whatsapp oder EMail. Mit der Episode über Daniela Kling erscheint innerhalb des Walk-Män-Podcasts somit die dritte Folge zum Thema "Abnehmen und gesund in Bewegung kommen". Bereits in Folge 9 des Podcasts war Guido Sander zu Gast, der insgesamt fast zwei Zentner abspeckte, mittlerweile Laufkurse und Abnehmcoaching anbietet. In Folge 10 berichtete Jochen Weigt, wie er dieses schwere Problem anging und warum heute Laufen seine große Leidenschaft ist. Auch diese Episoden sind absolut hörenswert und geben reichlich Motivation, den Schritt zu wagen und über mehr und gezielte Bewegung sowie eine kontrollierte Ernährungsumstellung ein leichteres und deutlich gesünderes Leben zu führen.

Chelan County PUD's new Discovery Center to open interactive exhibits; Wenatchee's 30 Under 35 winner Dylan Kling

Slices of Wenatchee

Good Morning it's Tuesday August 24th and this is Slices of Wenatchee. We're excited to bring you a closer look at one of our top stories and other announcements every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.    Today - The Chelan County PUD's new Discovery Center is truly a sight to behold. Complete with unique interactive exhibits it'll certainly attract visitors far and wide.    Before we jump in, The Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival has been postponed because of an increase in COVID-19 activity in Chelan and Douglas counties. Our Publisher announced the postponement over the weekend. We still hope to hold the festival later this year, so stay tuned. Details on ticket refunds or exchanges will be announced next week.   Now our feature story…    That was Rachel Hansen from the Chelan County PUD   The Chelan County PUD's new Discovery Center is finally finished and it's set to open tomorrow - August 25th.   Debbie Gallaher, who's been the Rocky Reach Visitor Center Manager for 19 years, said it's something that she and Bob Bauer, the PUD outreach education specialist, have been planning for 14 years. The total project cost was $7.7 million.   And she's thrilled to see it come alive.   In 2016 when a study was done on what the Discovery Center could be, PUD Senior Project Manager Casey Hall explained that after a lot of research they were able to narrow it down and decide on what they wanted this place to look like.    Then, in 2018 design renovations began. The Museum of the Columbia and visitor center closed in fall 2019. New big fish viewing windows were installed in early 2020. Remodeling of the building started in October 2020. And finally the installation of exhibits started in May of this year.   Hall said one of the most challenging parts of the project was the remodel. In fact they ran into all kinds of issues. Another issue? Nothing in the building is straight — everything is curved.   Luckily, they had a great contractor and superintendent.   Another big challenge was, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic caused a huge backlog of supplies and materials. There were delays getting the materials to build the project.   So what can you expect to see now that the center is finished?   Well, the new Discovery Center is built on STEM principles. The goal is to reach as many kids and guests in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math because that is what the hydro industry is all about.   The displays are designed to be interactive and to teach people of those four areas. Visitors will also learn about the history of the Columbia river, the history of the early people, the history of the PUD and the wonderful marriage between a PUD and its community.   Bob Bauer, the Chelan County PUD outreach education specialist, said the center allows the PUD to showcase not only the Columbia River but also the PUD and its partnership with the community. He explained that the PUD's visitor center presents hydropower in the Pacific Northwest as a clean, renewable, reliable, and affordable energy source.   And he can't wait to show off the facility to students.   For Gallaher, he's most excited about how everything is hands-on. And this is totally new. Now, Gallaher says families and children can come in and push buttons to see how things work.   Before we continue, a special thanks to our friends and sponsors at Confluence Health. The team at Confluence Health is grateful for the trust the community puts in them every single day. They are diligently working to improve the health and quality of life for our friends and neighbors. They are Grateful | They are Confluence Health.  Learn more by visiting them at ConfluenceHealth.com -   Finally, we're excited to share a Wenatchee 30 Under 35 winner from the 2021 awards… These were made possible by Chelan County PUD... Today we're highlighting Dylan Kling. Kling is a Counselor at Quincy High School, as well as an elected Quincy City Councilman.   Needless to say, he's giving back to the Quincy community on two fronts.    Through his career — as a counselor   And through his activity on the city's planning commission from 2016 through 2019 and currently as an elected member of the city council.   Kling graduated from Quincy High School in 2009 and earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Eastern Washington University in 2014. He worked as the Gear Up site director in Quincy, helping students explore educational opportunities ranging from tech school to four-year colleges. He has five years on the board of the Quincy Partnership for Youth. It's a nonprofit designed to foster a healthy, drug-free community through activities and prevention and intervention programs.   We asked Kling what challenges he sees ahead and what needs to be done.. He told us that it's all about trying to make the best decisions that will help set our community up for the future. From infrastructure and activities to diversifying our community economically and culturally all while still staying true to our roots.  To him, it's a delicate balancing act and making sure we have community involvement and the best resources to make sure our community is a better place for the next generation of Quincy residents.   Some of the biggest challenges in education are getting students identified and connected to services. His position works with students who suffer from substance use and abuse issues but with COVID it's been extremely difficult to identify these students and get them to the resources that they need. Kling explained they don't know the full extent of this problem yet and won't know for some time.   He thinks the best thing to do is talk to and form connections with all the agencies in the area so once a youth is identified they can streamline the process to help these individuals get the help they need.   Did you know that the 1994 Steven Seagal film, On Deadly Ground, was filmed in and around Wenatchee? Seagal plays a firefighter who decides to fight back against the environmental destruction of his former employer. Seagal's only directorial effort, it also stars Michael Caine, Joan Chen, John C. McGinley and R. Lee Ermey. The film wasn't well-regarded and was nominated for 11 Golden Raspberry Awards including winning Worst Director for Seagal. Nevertheless, Roger Ebert wrote in his review: "if you like to see lots of stuff “blowed up real good”, this'd be a movie for you." Over the last 25 years, the film has attained cult classic status in some circles.   Thanks for listening. We'd also like to thank our sponsor again, Equilus Group, Inc, a Registered Investment Advisory Firm in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.   The Wenatchee World has been engaging, informing and inspiring North Central Washington Communities since 1905.

EP173: Innovating Produce Nutrition For Busy Families Through Strategic Partnerships With Natalie Mariani Kling, Marketing Strategist With Mariani Dried Fruits.

“Our goal is to have a product that is so close to fresh produce as you can get it, but also making it shelf stable” Natalie Mariani Kling (04:48 - 04:55)   Attached to the Mariani name, Natalie Mariani Kling was already in the thick of growing produce and providing nutritious food to consumers. But that mindset elevated when she became a mother. In-depth research about eating habits from around the world led Natalie to focus on plant-based nutrients and whole foods in her own lifestyle. Now, Natalie and Mariani Dried Fruits are on a mission to elevate how we view nutrition and partnering with others to make it more accessible.    Mariani Dried Fruits goes back to the 1900's when Natalie's great grandfather, Paul, immigrated to the States from Croatia. Landing in NYC, the love of his life, Victoria, was across the country in California. Working in a coconut factory for $1 a day, he earned enough money to move to California and began working on Victoria's family farm in San Jose - now Silicon Valley. Soon after, he married Victoria and made enough money to put a down payment on his own orchard, and Mariani Dried Fruits was born. Known for his dedication to not only his family, but all the families in their community, Paul brought something special to the Mariani name.   As the business grew, Paul passed the farm along to his children, who then expanded it worldwide by buying land in Australia to grow produce year ‘round. With Paul's great grandson becoming the CEO in the 70's, Mariani Fruits continued to focus on quality, innovation, and family first. Now it's the fourth generation's turn as George Jr., Natalie's cousin, is at the helm as President. Even with many Mariani names involved, everyone has different roles to play in the innovation and “family first” mantra of the company. When it was their turn to run the company, everyone came together and discussed who they are as a company, as a family, and how they want to grow.    It simply came down to the ideals of living healthy with a family focus. They had a product they were able to take and deliver real nutrients to consumers just like them. The next step was figuring out how to elevate that into the next century.   “As a fourth generation, we sat down and realized that things are shifting and the success or failure of the company was going to be on our watch.” Natalie Mariani Kling (06:46 - 06:54)   After re-establishing their dedication to the value of health and family, Mariani Fruits began planning on how to convey that to consumers, as all changes start at home. They began working on programs to make healthy eating easier and more accessible for their community members, something the company continues to focus on. One of these adaptations is arranging how they can be a resource for busy people and families. That started with making their website a platform for things like healthier lunch boxes for kids and quick and easy recipes.   The innovation mindset didn't just start when the fourth generation took over. When Paul started the farm he immediately began working on better technology for drying fruit like adding moisture back to make a more enjoyable eating experience. These ideals continue to this day.    “We understand. We are those busy parents and those families that are trying to do it a little bit better all the time.” Natalie Mariani Kling (21:22 - 21:29)   Within months of these collaborative discussions, Natalie met with a company called Treasure 8. After hearing of their commitment to improving the food chain and especially supporting mothers and babies, she knew the combination of their technology and Mariani's ability to commercialize it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to impact the world together.    The two companies built this partnership by coming up with technology to preserve the cellular integrity of the food, thus locking in nutrients, flavor, texture and color so there would be no need for preservatives or artificial sweeteners. This took Mariani Dried Fruits to the next level when it comes to shelf stability. With that, Mariani dried fruits can not only be found in the dried fruits section in grocery stores, but in the produce section as well. Natalie points out this point was vital for customers to see them in a “fresh” area as 90% of shoppers at least pass through the produce section.   Treasure 8 can also take Mariani's food waste like prune or mango pits and make them into a nutrient dense ingredient that can be applied to other foods. The partnership between the two was a no-brainer between providing nutritious food to consumers, while also looking for ways to reduce waste and be more environment-friendly.    With partnerships like these, Mariani Dried Fruit can continue their mission statement of innovation while remaining relatable and convenient for families across the globe.   How to get involved Join The Produce Moms Group on Facebook and continue the discussion every week!  Reach out to us - we'd love to hear more about where you are in life and business!

As of today, 53.6 percent of Virginians are fully vaccinated, and do keep in mind that this number includes people under the age of 12 who cannot yet receive a shot. From June 19 to July 18 this year, there have been 8,012 new cases of COVID in Virginia and 97.09 percent cases are in people not fully vaccinated. There have been 25 deaths, and all but two were in people not fully vaccinated.Dr. Costi Sifri is the director of hospital epidemiology at the University of Virginia. “I think we’re fortunate in Charlottesville and Albemarle and our surrounding communities because we have a relatively high vaccination rate and we are also in a state that is one of those minority of states that vaccine rates that are above 50 percent and that’s provided some barriers to widespread transmission of Delta,” Dr. Sifri said. Dr. Sifri acknowledged the uptick in cases, but said other parts of the country are experiencing much steeper climbs. Source: Virginia Department of HealthThe Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission has been granted $2 million to spend on affordable housing projects. The funding comes from a statewide initiative from Virginia Housing called Resources Enabling Affordable Community Housing in Virginia, or REACH. Earlier this month, the agency announced it would spread $40 million around the state. Nonprofit groups, developers and others will be able to apply for the funding to help finance new construction. “This funding puts the Central Virginia Regional Housing Partnership (CVRHP) and the TJPDC in a strong position to be able to contribute to affordable housing solutions through the development of new rental, homeowner, and/or mixed-use housing opportunities,” said Christine Jacobs, the interim director of the TJPDC. The TJPDC has received funding for planning projects related to housing, but this is the first time the regional agency will play a role in the financing.  Details to follow, and we’ll learn more at the TJPDC’s meeting on August 5. Work on the replacement of the Belmont Bridge is picking up. Beginning today, flagging crews will periodically halt the flow of traffic while work is conducted to relocate utility lines. “The contractor is undergrounding electrical as well as telecommunication lines to accommodate the future pedestrian underpass under 9th/Avon Street between South Street and Monticello Road,” reads a release sent out Friday afternoon.More information about how construction will be conducted will be given out at an information meeting on August 11. Materials for an appearance before the Charlottesville Board of Architectural Review in August 2019*Today’s main segment consists on a lot of catch-up items from last week. Charlottesville will seek additional funding to implement a plan to build a trail along Meadow Creek through the City of Charlottesville. Trails planner Chris Gensic told Council the details last week on a Transportation Alternatives grant opportunity offered by the Virginia Department of Transportation. “The grant the parks department is pursuing is to construct a long awaited portion of an [Americans with Disabilities Act] accessible the Meadow Creek valley from the Michie Drive area up to the Virginia Institute of Autism at Greenbrier Drive and also around the corner to Greenbrier Park,” Gensic said. The city will use $135,000 from an already-funded capital account for trails to match federal dollars that come through VDOT for a total of $675,000.“That’s on top of about $375,000 we already have for this particular project,” Gensic said. “Costs have gone up over the years so we’ve determined we’re going to need this extra money for this particular project in Meadow Creek.” Council approves Fontaine Avenue streetscape designCouncil also approved the design for the $11.7 million Fontaine Avenue Streetscape, a project funded by VDOT’s Smart Scale in 2017 that is working through the long process from idea to construction. Kyle Kling is a transportation planning manager for the City of Charlottesville.“In January of 2020, Council accepted the Planning Commission’s recommendation that this project’s conceptual design was found to be in accordance with the city’s Comprehensive Plan,” Kling said. But what is the project, and what will it do for the half-mile stretch of Fontaine Avenue from city limits to where the roadway becomes Jefferson Park Avenue? Owen Peery is an engineer with design firm RK&K. “In line with the City of Charlottesville’s overall transportation goals, the project seeks to make Fontaine Avenue a complete street which should produce accommodations for all users,” Peery said. “Ensuring safe passage for pedestrians and bicyclists, understanding that this serves as a gateway corridor into the city and ensuring the impression is attractive and improving access to local facilities and ensuring these facilities are easily accessed by pedestrians, bicyclist, and transit users.” Final design will continue while property is acquired for public right of way, and construction would begin sometime in 2023. Councilor Michael Payne had a question about something not in the plan. “I’ve been reading through some of the community feedback and there are a couple of people who have raised the question of why these aren’t protected bike lanes with bollards or some kind of physical separation between the bike lane and the road where cars are,” Payne said. Kling said the main reason is the need to keep the travel lanes accessible to emergency vehicles given the presence of the Fontaine fire station. “We felt that if we were to put 11-foot travel lanes out there with some type of separated facility restricting access, it would make it more challenging for those vehicles to travel the corridor when needed,” Kling said.The other reason is the presence of lots of driveways along the roadway, which would need to be closed. Mayor Nikuyah Walker asked City Manager Chip Boyles to ask the University of Virginia to contribute financially if there are any cost overruns. Specifically, she suggested the city could ask to transfer some of UVA’s $5 million commitment for the fourth phase of West Main Street. “There’s a lot of traffic in that area due to their work too that maybe that could be transferred,” Walker said. “I think its a conversation that is worth having,” Walker said. Materials for the May Design Public Hearing included a video drive-through of the road post construction. Visit the project website to review the info.Limited options to assist GreyhoundAt the very end of the meeting, City Councilor Heather Hill asked if the city would be playing any role in the plight of Greyhound, which has closed its station on West Main Street but still picks up passengers on the street.  “I just want to acknowledge to the public that we’re hearing the frustrations,” Hill said. “The most recent comment that came today was around the role our own bus station could play as a housing location for those stops.”City Manager Chip Boyles said he is concerned about the situation.“A lot of our citizens utilize Greyhound to travel,” Boyles said. “We are very limited in what we can do because it is a private carrier and a private service.”Boyles said the city has been asked to provide a shelter, but they can’t do so on private property without a landowners’ permission. Still, he is trying to work out a solution.“We would love to talk with Greyhound,” Boyles said. “I know that they have inquired. The last that we heard was that they were just looking for someone to take over the service.” For many years, the city helped subsidize Greyhound but stopped the practice beginning with the FY2014 budget. Two other intercity bus services travel through Charlottesville, though both go north to rather than southeast to Richmond. These are the Piedmont Express run by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, and Megabus. Both of those services utilize a stop at Arlington Boulevard and Barracks Road. Charlottesville completes transit public input sessionsKeeping on the transit theme, last week Charlottesville Area Transit held the second of two public input sessions on upcoming route changes. The presentation on July 21 was the same as five days earlier. This time the first question came from Jane Colony Mills, the executive of the food pantry Loaves and Fishes.“We are located down Lambs Road at the intersection of Hydraulic and Lambs,” said Mills. “We serve probably 25 to 30 percent of Charlottesville’s population but if you don’t have a vehicle they can’t get to us.” The nearest bus line is Route 5, and it’s about three quarters of a mile away from the nearest stop on Commonwealth Drive. “I was out doing registration today and there are just numerous people who have to catch rides or figure out other ways of accessing our services because they can’t get here on public transport,” Colony Mills said. Another person on the call wanted to know if service could be restored to Albemarle Square, which has a new tenant in a new grocery store. CAT Deputy Director Juwhan Lee explained why there are no bus routes there anymore.“The property owner actually asked us to leave the property and so until they invite us back in, we will not able to serve the property directly,” Lee said. The route changes will have to be approved by Council before going into effect.At the same time, Albemarle County and the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission begin the public input component of the a study about ways to expand transit in urban Albemarle, with the goal of increasing service to Route 29 north of the Rivanna River, to Pantops, and to Monticello. Tonight’s meeting deals with service in the north and begins at 6 p.m. (meeting info)For more information on the proposed route changes, visit the CAT site This is a public episode.

I’m Sean Tubbs, and I’m glad to say that I’m grateful that you and many others have become listeners and readers. The world doesn’t have to be a scary place if people are armed with information and the power of critical thinking. In today’s Substack-fueled shout-out, Code for Charlottesville is seeking volunteers with tech, data, design, and research skills to work on community service projects. Founded in September 2019, Code for Charlottesville has worked on projects with the Legal Aid Justice Center, the Charlottesville Fire Department, and the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights. Visit the Code for Charlottesville website to learn more, including details on projects that are underway.In this episode of the program: The Albemarle County Economic Development Authority endorses ownership change at a section of Southwood Community members ask questions at Barracks/Emmet public hearing Several area companies receive funding from Virginia for early-stage research In a sign that the pandemic continues to be dormant, Albemarle County reopened its office buildings to the public yesterday. Though regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. have resumed, community members who need to transact business are asked to call 434-243-7929 to ensure that the service is available. The last day the buildings were open to the public was March 27, 2020. Public meetings will remain virtual now as the county continues to operate under a local emergency. At the same time, the Virginia Department of Health today reports another 346 new cases of COVID-19 and the seven-day percent positivity is at 2.3 percent. Today’s count is the highest since May 28 when 404 new cases were reported. Source: Virginia Department of HealthGovernor Ralph Northam has announced that his first budget proposal for the Virginia government’s share of federal American Rescue Plan Act funding will be to use $353 million for small businesses and industries that were hit hard by the pandemic. Part of that will be $50 million to assist the Virginia Tourism Corporation with a Virginia Tourism Recovery Program. Another $250 million will be added to the existing Rebuild VA program. The balance of the funding will to the Industrial Revitalization Fund and the Virginia Main Street program.  (release)Two local recovery programs currently have open windows for grant applications.

In 2017, the city was awarded $8.6 million in Virginia Department of Transportation Smart Scale funds for a project at the intersection of Barracks Road and Emmet Street. The design public hearing was held on July 7, 2021. “The purpose of the project is to improve the operational performance of the Barracks Road and Emmet Street intersection while also enhancing bicycle, pedestrian and transit facilities serving the adjacent neighborhoods,” said the narrator of a presentation shown at the virtual meeting. (watch the full presentation)The work will include a new northbound right-turn lane on Emmet Street, an additional west-bound left-hand turn lane on Barracks Road, upgraded traffic signals, increased medians, and a shared-use path up Barracks Road. Part of the work will involve something called a “pedestrian refuge” to allow slower walkers to cross Emmet Street and take a break. “The scope of bicycle and pedestrian improvements on Barracks Road were less somewhat less defined which provided an opportunity to involve local citizens in the early planning and decision-making process,” the presentation continued. One man expressed concern that this plan seemed to have come from nowhere and that it may not actually work. “This has been a long time question for me about Charlottesville and planning and development,” said Joel Bass. “How do we actually develop in this town without working with [the University of Virginia] and getting feedback from them on their plans?” Bass said what was needed from westbound Barracks Road was a right-hand lane. Before we hear from city staff, some background. In 1986, Albemarle, Charlottesville and UVA signed a Three Party Agreement and until 2019 there was a public body known as the Planning and Coordination Council (PACC) where projects and planning were discussed in the open. Since late 2019, a private body called the Land Use and Environmental Planning Committee meets and those events are closed to the public. This LUEPC group last met on June 25, 2021 and there is one page of minutes. (read those minutes)Back to the Barracks/Emmet project. There is a steering committee that includes a member of the UVA Office of the Architect and those meetings are open to the public. Kyle Kling in Charlottesville’s public works department.“In our department, we meet quarterly with the University to discuss projects the city is administering as well as projects that the University has throughout their Grounds and during those conversations we always discuss how things will trend during the future and how projects may supplement each other so that coordination is ongoing,” Kling said. Two other Smart Scale projects are in the planning states to the south on Emmet Street. The Emmet Street Streetscape had its design public hearing in December 2019. The Commonwealth Transportation Board just approved $20.6 million in funding for a second phase of that project that would span between Arlington Boulevard and Barracks Road. There was some concern at the public hearing about the shared-use path that will travel about a third of a mile up the hill on Barracks Road to Buckingham and Hill Top roads. Gregory Kastner was appreciative to get a dedicated facility, but had a question about how that fits into a larger network.“As you’re on the bike lane coming up the road, how does that transition to the current sidewalk?” Kastner asked. “With it ending at Hill Top, there’s still a fair bit of up to go where the rider is going to be going pretty slow and it really wouldn’t be a great place to get dumped out on the road.”Kastner said he hoped the scope of the project extended up to Rugby Road where the hill flattens.Kling said in the short-term, a sharrow would be painted on the road in the short-term as VDOT has strict rules about extending Smart Scale projects past the boundaries outlined in their initial application. “I do know that there are some plans in the works on the city’s end to kind of continue bike and pedestrian upgrades further into town along this stretch,” Kling said. About another two-thirds of a mile up Barracks Road is another Smart Scale project to address the intersection of Preston Avenue and Grady Avenue. That project has also not yet begun. Next steps for the project include final approval by City Council this summer and completion of the design in the winter of 2022. If all goes according to schedule, construction would begin in the spring of 2023. Now time for another reader-supported public service announcement. The future of passenger rail in Virginia got a lot more brighter this year as the Commonwealth of Virginia signed agreements with CSX to purchase hundreds of miles of railway corridors for three billion dollars. Virginians for High-Speed Rail are holding a transportation town hall on July 15 at 1 p.m. on the “True Story of the Virginia-CSX Deal: Lessons Learned and the Future of Passenger Rail.” Virginia Transportation Secretary Shannon Valentine and Amtrak President Stephen Gardner are the speakers. (register)Later on tonight, the Albemarle County Planning Commission will get an update from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville on the redevelopment of Southwood. The 5th and Avon Community Advisory Committee got an update in late June, as reported in this newsletter. The first phase of construction is underway based on a rezoning granted by the Board of Supervisors in August 2019. Part of the project involves construction of apartments that will be required to be rented to families below sixty percent of the area’s annual median income. Those units will be constructed by Piedmont Housing Alliance, who are contracting with Habitat to purchase 4.74 acres of land within the first rezoning phase. Habitat had entered into a performance agreement with Albemarle County and the Albemarle Economic Development Authority to provide the below-market units in exchange for up to $1.8 million in funding from the county tied to specific milestones. Under the terms of the agreement, Habitat would also receive tax rebates for either a period of ten years or until Habitat got $1.4 million in rebates. (original performance agreement)Some of the language in the Performance Agreement (read the document)That agreement has to be amended to reflect the new arrangement. The Albemarle Economic Development Authority met on June 30, 2021 to discuss the matter. Richard DeLoria is the assistant county attorney. “The redevelopment plan is going to work towards 700 to 800 new dwelling units,” DeLoria said. “Four hundred of those units will be affordable dwelling units… The plan is to develop phase one first because that will not displace the residents who are now in the mobile homes.” DeLoria said the EDA is serving as a conduit for the funds that Albemarle is putting forward, both up-front and through the rebate process. He also said it was always anticipated as a possibility that Habitat would involve another partner.“From my recollection and discussions before the Planning Commission and before this board is that in order for this project to be viable, Habitat would sell a portion of it to a third-party,” DeLoria said. In late June, the Virginia Housing Development Authority awarded Piedmont Housing Alliance over a million in Low Income Housing Tax Credits for 70 units in what will be known as Southwood Apartments.  The cost to build the remaining 51 apartments in the project that are shown in a conceptual drawing of the Southwood project will be supplemented by another affordability mechanism. (2021 LIHTC rankings) In order to close the deal, the EDA had to adopt a resolution approving a certificate that determined Piedmont Housing is an entity that will implement some of the terms of the affordability agreed to in the original performance agreement. The resolution was crafted to acknowledge that the EDA was solely serving as a conduit and had no independent verification of the contents of a letter the EDA chair will sign acknowledging the EDA’s endorsement. “The reason for that is that you never know where these letters will end up or when it’s going to become a problem,” said Jim Bowling, the attorney for the EDA. “My role is to ensure that the board members don’t become entangled in any future disputes.”DeLoria said that Housing Coordinator Stacy Pethia indicated no issue with a draft endorsement letter, but deputy county attorney Andy Herrick had raised a flag. “I will say that the attorney for the Planning Commission has had some comments on it, and the significant comment is on page 2, clause number 2 that indicates that the 30-year minimum period of affordability may be shortened in the event of the sale of property,” DeLoria said, The agreement doesn’t anticipate that as a possibility. That language is required by federal regulations related to Low Income Housing Tax Credits. (approved resolution)Attorney Tara Boyd represented the Piedmont Housing Alliance at the EDA meeting and explained the apartment complex will be built on Hickory Street in the northeast corner of the property. Rendering included in the packet for the July 13, 2021 Albemarle Planning Commission meeting Boyd said her job is to do due diligence for PHA, which is a newcomer to the performance agreement. “We reviewed this and we saw some things that we wanted to get comfort on to make sure that we weren’t stepping into liabilities that either we weren’t intended to have or didn’t make sense for us,” Boyd said. “And one of the things that jumped out was this description of the LIHTC [affordable dwelling units], the 80 LIHTC ADUs, and this 30-year requirement. In order to get the Low Income Housing Tax Credits for these 80 units, the federal [regulations] governing those credits, they provide a 15-year point during the affordability period when the ownership can turnover.” Boyd said the plan is for Piedmont Housing Alliance to retain ownership for the 30 years but the technicalities of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit require an amendment to reflect that possibility. Piedmont Housing Alliance took advantage of such a point a few years ago to become the majority partner in a consortium that owns Friendship Court. The Board of Supervisors will consider this matter at an upcoming meeting. *Finally today, I mentioned at the top of the show that today, July 13, is the anniversary of the first edition of the program.

Is the light in Chicago different than the light in New York?  Can “street photography” set the subjects and control the scene?  And just how long should you follow people carrying balloons in order to get a photograph?  These are some of the questions we answer in this week's episode of the B&H Photography Podcast. We welcome to the program photographers Nina Welch Kling and Clarissa Bonet. Kling lives in New York and Bonet in Chicago, although both are from other places entirely. We talk a bit about the differences in each city's visual make-up and what defines street photography, but we quickly turn toward the styles and workflow of our two guests. With Bonet we discuss how she constructs scenes using the language of street photography to tell internal stories. Her work is large scale, exacting, and utilizes the strong light, deep shadows, and geometries of the urban environment, but as we find out, she produces and casts her medium format photographs to get the exact image she wants, free of the disruption of the hustling crowd and uncooperative elements. We also ask about her incredible nightscape compositions called “Stray Light” and how they evolved to become large, collaged prints. After a break, we focus on the work of Nina Welch Kling and learn how she's grown to understand the movement of light through the streets of New York. Kling also discusses positioning herself (“corralling”) and holding her camera to get the angles she needs, as well as to communicate her intention to potential subjects. We also mention Fujifilm cameras and the wide-angle lenses she prefers. We ask about her series “Duologue”, which pairs two photos together, and how that pairing can add or change meaning. We also dig into the classic themes of anonymity, isolation, and wonder in street photography and how quarantine redirected her practice a bit. Join us for this insightful and easygoing conversation.
