Unfortunately for him, a subdivision that's nearby has done everything they could to stop him from building it. Most of their complaints have involved the additional traffic that it would mean.
They've annoyed him to the point where he has actually given up on his goal of building the studio. Specifically stating that they don't believe in seeing business brought into their area.
In further response he has also begun working with the Marin Community Foundation to build affordable housing for low income and fixed income families and seniors.
If his neighbors won't allow him to bring in money, wealth, and jobs; they'll get more neighbors, who will definitely bring in that more traffic.
It is possible that the thieves are stealing the covers in hopes of selling them. That amount of metal is worth about nine dollars at a recycling center. They cost the city $65 each to make.
Local scrap metal shops and recyclers are being notified by both the city and police.
Crews are doing their best to make sure that none are missing for long, due to the possible dangers of the holes being left open.
The city is asking that anyone noticing a missing cover contact them immediately. If you see someone, who doesn't work for the city, messing with a cover contact police immediately.
Last week, New York City arrested a man for stealing eighteen of their 300 pound covers, in Brooklyn and Queens. He had been selling them for scrap metal.
Led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the group consisted of forty-eight at the start of it's trip, when it left St. Louis.
They would take almost two and a half years to complete their journey, gaining members, and losing some as well.
On November 8, 1805, the group became the first Europeans to reach the Pacific Ocean, by coming east across the continent.
With their return they brought back not just information, but also established US claims to the Oregon territory.
