County shut down all dining except for pickup and delivery. Pasadena was able to allow outdoor dining to continue via a directive from its own health department.Local restaurants saw a boom during that brief time as they were the only restaurants allowed to legally operate in L.A. County.However, despite being allowed to open for outdoor dining, the city’s restaurants were again forced to shut down due to the state order.To donate to the Edwin Mills by Equator campaign visit:https://www.gofundme.com/f/edwin-mills-fights-for-staff-and-rent?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf%20share-flow-1&fbclid=IwAR1S-95crioeqo5grlH09tdTrxPJE-X7ViqzOjhGuSzgSTEITJhpfgoH0ZA Top of the News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDScenter_img Business News CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Community News Popular Pasadena Restaurant Asking For Help Via GoFundme Edwin Mills by Equator owner raising funds for bills, payroll By DONOVAN MCCRAY Published on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 | 2:54 pm More Cool Stuff Community News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

Resettlement of populations in the core of towns and villages is needed for their sustainable development.Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Sheahan said: “This is a significant day for rural County Limerick. The five towns and villages as part of this project will see derelict properties be brought back into use, primarily as housing.“This will help rejuvenate the centres of these towns and villages, which have been in decline over the past decade or so.” he said.Welcoming the announcement Gordon Daly, Director of Community Development with Limerick City and County Council said: “This funding is a major boost in our battle against dereliction and efforts to harness the potential of our small towns and villages in County Limerick.“The ability to work from home, improving broadband and greater awareness of the social and economic benefits of living in small towns and villages means there is an increasing demand for housing in these settlements.”“This project will aim to match supply to this demand and at affordable prices.” he added.Limerick City and County Council is one of the most pro-active local authorities in the country dealing with dereliction and has a specific unit in place since 2018.In the past 18 months, the Council has commenced the compulsorily purchase of 56 derelict properties using its powers under the Derelict Sites Act 1990, with many of these now acquired by the Council.The Rural Regeneration and Development Fund is a commitment by the government to invest €1 billion in rural Ireland between 2019 and 2027.The purpose of the fund is to support job creation, address de-population of rural communities and support improvements in towns and villages with a population of less than 10,000, and outlying areas.Limerick projects funded previously include: Great Southern Greenway Limerick, Glenbrohane Local Hub, Murroe Community Hub, International Mountain Biking Project in Ballyhoura.
