I'm so glad you're up for the challenge of uncovering the mysteries of the Santa Barbara Plaza/Marlton Square fiasco.

Amaechina Doreen, Walter Melton and Ernie Mixon are also interested. I'll set up a meeting so we can move forward.

For now, it's most important to tell people you are working on the piece and get the word out. We want this to be something the community knows about as we move forward.

And we need first hand accounts from people in the area who can talk about and provide photos of Santa Barbara Plaza and Marlton Square.

I'll be in touch.
