La Cuaresma nos da la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre el llamado que hace Jesús en Mateo 25 de atender a los que tienen necesidad y de redoblar nuestro esfuerzo por vivir con actitud compasiva y por elevar la dignidad de cada uno de los seres humanos”.En conmemoración de los 75 años de trabajo conjunto por sanar a un mundo que sufre, las congregaciones de toda La Iglesia Episcopal se darán la mano el 22 de febrero, el primer domingo de Cuaresma, día en que celebraremos el Domingo Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo. En esta fecha, se invita a los Episcopales a orar por las personas que viven en la pobreza y a dedicar una ofrenda especial para ayudar a los que más lo necesitan, a través del Fondo del 75 Aniversario.Las congregaciones que participen en el Domingo Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo tendrán disponible un folleto especial para insertar en su boletín dominical.“Me siento profundamente agradecido por las tantas personas y congregaciones que mantienen en sus oraciones a lo largo del año a la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo y sus socios”, dijo Rob Radtke, el presidente de la organización. “Este aniversario 75 es una oportunidad especial en que los episcopales podemos enfocar nuestras prácticas espirituales de Cuaresma en esfuerzos que alivien la pobreza, el hambre y la enfermedad, a través de sus meditaciones diarias y del Domingo Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo”.Los folletos en PDF y otros recursos materiales para la cuaresma aparecen publicados en la página web de la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo en episcopalrelief.org/cuaresma. Las personas que deseen recibir devocionales diarios por correo electrónico pueden inscribirse en dicha página.Los folletos impresos deben solicitarse antes del 4 de febrero para poder recibirlos antes del 18 de febrero, Miércoles de Ceniza, y pueden pedirse en línea desde Marketplace Episcopal o llamando al1.866.937.2772.La Cuaresma fue designada en la Convención General de 2009 como un momento para animar a las diócesis, congregaciones y personas a recordar y apoyar el vital trabajo que realiza la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo. Aunque el primer domingo de Cuaresma es el día oficial, las congregaciones pueden observar la celebración Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo durante cualquier domingo de la temporada de Cuaresma.“Los Cristianos aprovechan esta temporada para considerar cómo sus vidas reflejan las enseñanzas de compasión, justicia y entrega sacrificada de Jesús”, comenta McConnell. “La Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo ayuda a los episcopales a poner en práctica esos valores al conectarlos con las necesidades globales y al crear oportunidades para participar de forma más profunda en problemas que nos impactan a todos. Nos sentimos agradecidos y orgullosos de trabajar juntos por un futuro brillante de las comunidades en todo el mundo.” Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Knoxville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Meditaciones de Cuaresma del 75 Aniversario de la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit a Job Listing An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Bath, NC Submit an Event Listing Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Submit a Press Release Press Release Service Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Posted Jan 12, 2015 Featured Events Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Tampa, FL Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Martinsville, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Youth Minister Lorton, VA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Featured Jobs & Calls Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Pittsburgh, PAlast_img read more

Council Adopts Mansionization Zoning Code Amendment

first_imgCommunity News Council Adopts Mansionization Zoning Code Amendment By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Monday, October 19, 2020 | 6:05 pm CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  The City Council on Monday unanimously passed a zoning code amendment designed to address mansionization.Under the proposed zoning amendment, applicants would be required to provide a square-footage analysis of all single-family houses (not including garages or accessory structures) within a 500-foot radius of the proposed project.The amendment will be reviewed in one year.Mansionization occurs when homeowners remodeling their homes create a structure that is out of scale, or ill-proportioned, or out of character with its surrounding neighborhood. Local residents have been calling for action on the issue since 2015.“The Madison Heights Neighborhood Association(MHNA) supports Pasadena’s efforts to limit ‘Mansionization’ in our neighborhood and city,” the MHNA wrote to its members. “This sentiment was reinforced by our recent neighborhood survey in which ‘Mansionization’ was the top concern among the replies we received. In general, remodels and new construction should conform to existing neighborhood standards and not create homes that don’t fit existing standards, design, style, and architecture. Our concerns include inappropriate sizing, scale, setbacks, massing, on-site location, design, and style.”According to a staff report on the matter, the city’s zoning code regulates development in single-family neighborhoods through the establishment of maximum heights, floor areas, and setbacks, among other development standards. Additionally, there exist further regulatory requirements throughout much of the city, including: Historic Landmark Districts; Hillside Overlay Districts; and Lower Hastings Ranch. In these areas, there is a discretionary review process and additional standards that are intended to ensure that new houses and additions to existing homes consider the existing neighborhood development pattern.The amendment includes the adoption of neighborhood compatibility standards related to maximum floor area, the establishment of a discretionary review process for projects of a certain size, the modification of standards related to primary structure first and second story plate height requirements, modification of standards related to accessory structure finish materials and roof pitch, and establishment of design standards regarding: prohibition of unfinished concrete and architectural foam; review of new window placement relative to existing neighboring windows; the placing of story poles to demonstrate height as part of the discretionary review process; and updating the construction notification boards.Several residents signed petitions opposing the amendment.“We strongly oppose the zoning code amendment to Single-Family Standards — in particular, we strongly oppose the proposed restriction to limit ‘new houses to less than 35 percent above, the median floor area of houses within 500 feet.’ In short,” the petition states, “the proposed limit is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that fails to account for the unique circumstances of many neighborhoods within Pasadena and will unfairly impose extreme and unreasonable burdens on many homeowners [in particular those that own a large lot of land.]”Serious discussions about mansionization at the city level began in 2015. It was then that the Planning and Community Development Department held citywide community meetings focused on single-family home neighborhood issues.Other meetings were also held focusing on Lower Hastings Ranch and on Hillside Overlay District areas, which helped the department learn of neighborhood concerns about mansionization from a wider cross-section of the community.The meetings ultimately led to the formulation of design guidelines that could eventually cover all other single-family home residential zones in the city.

Assessment needed to renew IPD membership

first_img Comments are closed. The IPD has defended its decision to refuse an HR professional with 30years’ experience admittance to the institute unless he takes a qualificationor goes through a professional assessment.Dave Morgan, employee relations manager at Suffolk County Council, wrote toPersonnel Today to express his “annoyance and disgust” after beingtold by the institute that he could not renew his lapsed membershipautomatically. He accused director-general Geoff Armstrong of running a”shambles”.But the IPD defended its position saying that Morgan, who joined the IPD’spredecessor, the IPM in the 1970s has never been a member of the IPD because hefailed to convert his membership to the institute when it was formed in 1994.Because he has let his IPM membership lapse it has not convertedautomatically. As a non-member he has to apply to join like anyone else. Since1994 the routes for joining have been either through professional assessment,NVQs, the institute’s exams or the accreditation of a non-relatedqualification.IPD spokesman Nick Isles denied that the entrance requirements are weightedagainst people who have been in the profession for a long time.”That is the point of having a number of ways in,” he said.”We are not asking people with a lot of experience to take exams but theyhave got to show somehow that they meet the required standards or what’s thepoint of having a professional body?”Morgan, has decided not to take the matter further as he is about to retire.

Boston Properties to launch $2B joint venture

first_img Tags Email Address* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Boston Properties CEO Owen Thomas (iStock, Thomas by Axel Dupeux)Boston Properties is making a $2 billion bet on the office market.Executives at the real estate investment trust announced during its first quarter earnings call that it will team up with two sovereign wealth funds to invest in office real estate.The investors, which the REIT said it would identify once the joint venture paperwork was finalized, will put in about $1 billion worth of equity, which will work out to about $2 billion in purchasing power.“It will be investment-by-investment,” said CEO Owen Thomas, “and if it goes well, it could be bigger.”Boston Properties also announced on the call that it launched three new life sciences labs in Boston and South Francisco totaling almost $1 billion in investment.ADVERTISEMENTThe life sciences and biotech sectors are closely watched by the investment and brokerage communities, which see them as a source of demand for space with a long runway for growth. The top 14 markets across the country are expected to add 36 million square feet of lab space.In New York City, projects by Taconic Partners and Silverstein Properties, Alexandria Real Estate Equities and Georgetown Properties have experienced recent success.On Park Avenue South, Enterprise Asset Management is looking to sell its interest in a 450,000-square-foot property that could be converted to a life sciences hub across the street from medical fund manager Deerfield’s hub at 345 Park Avenue South.But Boston Properties executives said their largest markets are in the areas surrounding Boston and San Francisco, and that there wasn’t even a close third.The REIT reported net income of $91.6 million for the first three months of 2021, down from $497.5 million during the same period last year.Boston Properties executives said they’re seeing a strong increase in tenants touring spaces, but they’re not yet signing large leases in the same numbers as before the pandemic.Correction: A previous version of this article said Boston Properties’ new joint venture would be focused on life sciences. The JV is focused on all office developments, not just life sciences.Contact Rich Bockmann Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Message* Full Name* Boston PropertiesCommercial Real EstateReal Estate Investmentlast_img read more
