Fireworks at James Otis park this year?

Just moved to neighborhood and heard that the park at James Otis does awesome fireworks every year... Anyone know if they will be on display this 4th of July again?

  • Hi, Alexandra. We've been here 15 years, and they've been done every 4th. They stage them in the faculty parking lot at Otis. Many people line the sidewalks on Grand Ave. with chairs to watch. But you can view from the entire immediate area. They do 3-4 displays, I believe. Just a heads up. it's VERY loud since it's in a residential area. and smoky of you're downwind. Have fun!

  • Thank you! We literally live across the street, so will give our guests on the 4th a heads up as we watch from our roof deck💥💥💥💥

Hey everyone, I lost some keys on the 606 trail on Monday, 6/25/18.
I was hoping if anyone has seen them and can return them. They are keys that have a blue buckle, it has two bottle openers ( one is a blue bud light, and the other is a picture of the Virgin Mary). Please help.

Home builder suggestions?

Hi all, We've thought about building in the neighborhood, but all the GC's we've spoken to seem to be price gouging. Doing a hail mary pass here, can anyone suggest a home builder that's ethical, with reasonable prices? Every builder we've spoken to seems to look at the land prices in the area, look up the most expensive new houses in the area, subtract the two and then gives us the build price, leaving no equity. Two GC's outright admitted that that's how they determined the bid price.
Thanks for any helpful suggestions.

  • There is also the 'premium' charged for a trendy neighborhood. East of Western is one price, west of western another. I've had contractors tell me that.

  • Scott Rappe Architect, Father, Fourth Generation East Villager

    We are a local architectural firm that focuses on custom residential design. We have a very good builder that we partner with to do design-build. This is a good approach if you want good custom design within a specific budget. Check out www.kplusr.com and feel free to give me a call. No obligation.
