Infill development in Quahog

In Parking by Jef Nickerson3 Comments

The other night, watching an old episode of Family Guy on one of the 37 stations it airs on, as one does, I noticed something about the Drunken Clam.


The clam used to have a surface parking lot next to it. Looking at later episode one notices a new building on that surface lot.


Good work Mayor West on having policies in your city that promote the redevelopment of surface parking lots into new buildings.
