Open Letter to Historic District Commission: The Planned 206 Cannon Street Project Not Appropriate
I find the application for 206 Cannon Street to be inappropriate with the immediate neighborhood and believe the proposed development will degrade the Historic District at this end of town. It is completely incongruent with the intimate and historic character of the residential neighborhood. The proposed 8,000 square foot house qualifies as an estate house insensitively imposed on a humble, yet highly historically significant, neighborhood where houses average about 1,800 square feet. The site layout with various features further distances the development from the prevailing residential context and in tandem with the house design, would establish a harmful precedent if the application is approved. The following details are presented to support these opinions.

Fog by Jamie Kirkpatrick
We’ve had a string of foggy days over here on the Eastern Shore. Sure, I could tell you that fog is simply an aerosol of small water droplets at or near ground level sufficiently dense enough to reduce horizontal visibility to less than one-thousand meters, or give you all the technical names for the various types of fog, but that would only reduce the phenomenon of fog to mere science. But I not going to do that because to me, fog is more art than science. Of all of Mother Nature’s wondrous weather wizardry, fog is a state of mind, a stupendous atmospheric work of art than has the power to transform the mundane into the marvelous. It’s a primed canvas worthy of a master, or in all fairness to Mother Nature, a mistress. It absorbs her brush strokes, removes all the extraneous material—even sound!—and leaves us spellbound by the simplicity of a black-and-white world.
