The 1st Council district homicide comes roughly 48 hours after a man was shot/wounded (and a woman was injured, naure of injuries unclear) in the 600 block of Pacific Ave. (also CD 1).

Council discussion of Lincoln Park came during an item agendized to credit LB's Civic Center developer/operator Plenary with $1 million that had been part of roughly $7 million that LB taxpayers were slated to receive as part of the Civic Center transaction, which includes demolishing LB's former City Hall and completing construction of a new Lincoln Park.

When the City Clerk announced the item, Mayor Garcia moved swiftly to focus attention exclusively on plans for the park without makng any mention of the $1,000,000 sum that LB taxpayers won't receive by the Council's action. Second district Councilwoman Cindy Allen followed by doing likewise, and no other Councilmembers mentoned the million dollar sum before voting to approve it.
