December's City Council Meeting
The Mayor and Council hosted it monthly meeting on 12/4/2007. One of the primary issues before the Mayor and Council was the Operating Agreement between the City and Landmark Atlantic Holding, LLC. The Agreement was approved and provides the City with a one percent holding in the newly formed LLC, The Mount Rainier Gateway Town Center Revitalization Project. Under this agreement and project this City will work with Atlantic Holdings to revitalize the down town area including the old funeral home, the Bass property, Thrifty Car Rental and other properties as may be agreed upon by the partnership.
Landmark Atlantic Holdings hold the majority interest in the new LLC, and will be responsible for fronting 99 percent of the financing on each project including legal fees, court cost, environmental studies, and other activities necessary to remove the blight from our down town area on mutual projects.

As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents. It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved. It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible. This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
