Old North Founding Errors Published April 30, 2010
In late April, 2010, City of Davis staff involved in planning and historical resource matters published erroneous statements about when and how the Old North started and developed. It has seemed prudent to make this public note of those errors and to correct them. This sub-folder contains four items: 1. The full document in which City Staff make the Old North founding errors; 2. The errors section of that report extracted for convenience of reference; 3. John Lofland's email to City Staff enumerating the errors; and, 4. the City Staff response.
