Some enterprising soul has erected a tent with a "For Rent" sign on it on the vacant lot slotted for the Watt Artisan project. As if the Watt Company didn't have enough concerns with the economy, now they may be faced with screening applications for a temporary tenant.
The Watt Co. has been wrestling with concepts to improve the appearance of the development lots until the time comes to begin construction. They are to present these options to the City Planning Commission at the November 12 meeting. But in the meantime the site has been transformed to accomodate an urban outdoorsy tenant?


dba256 has a Birthday!

Happy Birthday to dba256 Gallery Wine Bar! Yesterday marked the 1st
anniversary of the dba256 Wine Bar located at 256 S. Main St., right in the heart of Downtown Pomona.

And what a year it has been! From the get-go this establishment has been the hub of activity downtown. It's the place to go to meet and greet, view wonderful art pieces, raise a glass of your favorite wine or brew. It's been a favorite watering hole for locals and visitors alike. Many is the time people come to Downtown Pomona for one event or another, discovered the dba and returned time and again to enjoy the comraderie of the place. Last week a young couple announced their engagement there, and we've all seen local politicians and City staff there from time to time. It's the place to be!

Every Wednesday evening they feature a wine tasting which brings in the novice taster as well as the connoiseur. The place has taken on the role of our very own "Cheers", where everybody knows your name. After just one visit, you will be greeted by your name and make a connection to others. If you want to know what's "really" happening in town, check out the dba. The proprietor, Ron Faris, is a big supporter of all that is Pomona.

So Happy Birthday! And many more!

"Envisioning the Future" Oct. 4th

Come to the Envisioning the Future ceremony this SATURDAY, 3PM @ the Thomas Plaza.

After almost 5 years the beautiful mural that is so much a part of Downtown Pomona is finally finshed. With the dogged persistence of Cheryl Bookout, and the generous financial assistance provided by the Vehicle Parking District (VPD), the artists have finished the project and even given the mural a few coats of varnish to protect it for years to come.

All are invited. The Mayor as well as City Council members will be there to present the certificates and bronze plaque to all who participated in making the mural possible.
