Per Enclave commenter Jim's request in an earlier post, below is a copy of the letter Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency sent at the end of April detailing the streetscape elements that were dropped due to cost overruns. Some clarifications: one of the eliminated elements at intersections were not "cotton ball" details but cotton boll details, symbolizing the neighborhood's historic working-class ties to the Werthan Cotton Mill. The letter's reference makes it sound like we were attempting to promote hygienic swabbing at the intersections.
