Neveh Shamir: Progress!
Mehadrinews first reported the new neighborhood's location is in… Beit Shemesh! We hope this didn't ruin the prospects!
Tomorrow (Thursday) will be "Open House" for contractors and entrepreneurs, with Mayor Moshe Abutbul, neighborhood planner Moshe Montag, and council members Moshe Shitrit and Shalom Edri, who promoted the neighborhood from the start.
The place was already advertised nationally, in almost every way: roadside billboards, radio and secular newspapers.
The planners also ensured ten-story buildings for the "sensitive demographic balance". An aside, how does that count as "close to nature"?
We attempted to contact the organizers for further details. Unbelievable: There's no contact number! Still, we hope it goes well.
Will Moshe Abutbul get credit for it? Wait and see.
With Heaven's help, Yehuda Segal
