Measure N is a NO, Morning View is a GO, Says Carissa Carpenter

Carissa Carpenter reported Wednesday morning that Morning View, LLC will resume progress with the movie studio in Dixon now that Measure N is out of their way.

Measure N was a no vote at the polls Tuesday, reporting 69.23% opposed at midnight on Wednesday. 

After hitting the brakes on progress towards a movie studio in Dixon because of legal concerns with Measure N, Morning View LLC says they will be calling land owners this week to open escrow for property acquisition.

"We are so proud of the Dixon community. They are some really smart people," says Carissa Carpenter, Chairman of Morning View LLC, after learning Measure N had been voted down by nearly two-thirds vote. "They looked beyond the headlines and read what the measure was actually about."

Carpenter said the Measure set their progress back two months, after paying a lot to expedite things early on, but says, "That's okay, we are ready and happy to move forward now."

Dixon Patch will have updates on the movie studios progress, town hall meetings, and further information as it is things progress.

I think it will be a tremendous boon to the local economy, and I am all for it, and yes, low level positions may be filled with locals. And there is a possibility of working up, but that's a long way down the road, and people should not expect to get "production jobs." I am most interested in whether there will be jobs in computer programming and graphcs, which is what my son is majoring in at UC Davis. Would love for local college graduates to have an opportunity to work in Dixon.

Hello everyone. The only update I can provide is that Morning View is close to closing the deal with the developer so they can start to close on the properties. The holidays have delayed things. Morning View hopes to make an announcement soon and then start the public discussion. Any questions or concerns can be sent my way. Thanks!

Thank you, Mike, for the updates, and thank you, Gary, for your ongoing support of a fantastic opportunity for Dixon. BTW, lest anyone forget, the troll, "The Great Libertarian," is former councilman, Mike Ceremello, although most probably recognize him by his stellar journalistic professional tone. Cindy Duncan
