Let Allandale be Allandale
Wednesday, April 19, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
City Council Member Leslie Pool has explained one of the more mysterious items on this week’s Council agenda in an April 18 post on the City Council Message Board. Pool has sponsored a resolution clarifying the boundaries between the Allandale and Rosedale neighborhoods. The reason for the resolution is not, she explained, to make sure that this year’s softball leagues are appropriately formed. Instead, Rosedale is next up for a neighborhood plan, and Pool wants to “make sure the boundaries are clear when Rosedale starts its planning process.” She explained, “In this case, the Rosedale Planning Area would encompass Rosedale, Ridgelea, and Oakmont Heights. My resolution would not change that – it would just fix a discrepancy in the boundaries in order to keep Allandale whole, rather than splitting it up among two different planning areas.”
