Only visitors from within the same region are allowed.“Advanced reservations will be required, and no concession or concourse sales will be allowed,” according to a CDPH statement.“In the Red tier, capacity will be limited to 20 percent. Concession sales will be primarily in-seat (no concourse sales),” the statement added. “In the Orange tier capacity will be limited to 33 percent and in the Yellow tier capacity will increase to 67 percent. Attendance will be limited to in-state visitors in the Red, Orange and Yellow tiers.Amusement parks will be permitted to open only in regions that have achieved Red Tier status or better.“Capacity will be limited to 15 percent in the Red tier,” according to a CDPH statement. “In the Orange tier, that limitation will increase to 25 percent, and then 35 percent in the Yellow tier. Attendance will be limited to in-state visitors.”Both Pasadena city officials and Rose Bowl representatives said they were looking into the new state guidelines and what the changes might mean locally.City officials learned of the change Friday afternoon, along with the rest of the public, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.“We typically do not get much (notice) when the state makes an announcement like this,” she said.“It’s encouraging,” Derderian said of the policy change. “Our goal is to be able to open, but still in a safe environment, following all the covid protocol.”She added that the city’s primary focus has been on distributing vaccinations and helping shepherd the region into the Red Tier.Rose Bowl General Manager Darryl Dunn said the stadium, too, had just learned of the new guidelines and was examining options.Meanwhile, public health officials in Pasadena reported 15 new COVID-19 infections and one new death on Friday.The death was that of a member of the community at large, as opposed to a resident of a care facility, Derderian said. Information regarding the victim’s age and gender was not available.The new figures raised Pasadena’s totals since the onset of the pandemic to 10,977 known COVID-19 infections and 319 fatalities.Pasadena saw an average of 16.2 daily infections over the prior week, according to city data.At Huntington Hospital, officials reported treating 36 COVID-19 patients on Friday, with eight of them being housed in intensive care units.While recent trends have been encouraging, Derderian urged Pasadenans not to fall into complacency.“If people get too comfortable and travel or gather in groups outside their household there is still the concern we can see another surge,” she said.The growing proportion of the population that has received vaccinations seemed to be driving down new infections, Derderian added.“Hundreds of restaurant and grocery workers were vaccinated this week and that will continue,” according to Derderian. “Teachers and daycare workers are also in this phase to prepare for school reopening.”“We should be receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the next few weeks, so we’re very optimistic that’ll enable us to vaccinate more community and business representatives,” she said.But for far too many families, the pandemic was far from over, Derderian said.“Unfortunately, we are still seeing deaths almost daily from cases that in some cases go back several weeks,” she said.Eligible Pasadenans were urged to fill out an inquiry form on the city’s website to be notified when vaccines are available at cityofpasadena.net/public-health/covid-19-vaccine. Information is also available on the state website myturn.ca.gov. Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Ltd. to refund approximately Rs. 12 crore to homebuyers, in view of “inordinate delay” in giving possession at its Greenopolis Project in Gurgaon. “In these complaint cases, the possession was due in 2015-2016, however, even the construction is not complete,” Presiding Member Prem Narain noted. Recognizing the plight of homebuyers who had invested Rs. 70 lakh to 1 crore with the builder, the Commission held, “Clearly the OPs have not been able to complete the project in time and to deliver the possession of properties in question to the respective complainants in time as per the allotment letter or the Apartment Buyer Agreement. It is now clearly established that the allottees have right to ask for refund if the possession is inordinately delayed and particularly beyond one year.” The builder had argued that the complainant-home buyers had breached the provision of the Apartment Buyer Agreement as they had stopped paying installments and consequently as per Section 55 of the Indian Contract Act, 1872, they are not entitled to any relief. Rejecting this argument, the Commission observed, “Installments have been paid upto reasonable limit and the payment was stopped later on as there was no progress in the construction— therefore, it cannot be said that the complainants breached the agreement first and they are not entitled to any relief in the light of Section 54 and 55 of The Indian Contract Act, 1872.” The builder had also attempted to taken the defence of force majeure conditions for delay, including the order of the Punjab and Haryana High Court in Sunil Singh v. MoEF, Parayavaran, wherein a blanket ban was imposed on the use of ground water in the region of Gurgaon and adjoining areas for the purposes of construction. Concurring with the homebuyers on this aspect that the builder should have taken “remedial measures,” the Commission remarked, “Clearly, there was no ban on construction and OPs should have put their resources and managerial skills to bring water from outside and to complete the construction in time.” Significantly, the project land was owned by Orris Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. which had apparently entered into development agreement with Three C Shelters Pvt. Ltd. The Commission however came to a finding that the two companies had not entered into the agreement and it therefore held that the Development Agreement itself had come into question. It observed, “Though this ground has not been taken by the complainants for seeking refund, however this is also a valid ground for the complainants for seeking refund. If there is uncertainty in the development agreement itself, as entered between Orris Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. and Three C Shelters Pvt. Ltd., the allottees would not like to block their money in such a project.” The company was therefore directed to refund even the earnest money. The Commission has also clarified that since all the homebuyer’s money had been received by Three C Shelters and not Orris Infra, “Three C Shelters Pvt. Ltd. would be liable to refund the same to the complainants” along with 9% p.a. interest from the date of respective deposits. The observations were made in three orders, disposing of a batch of consumer complaints. In a few cases, the Court has directed the builder to hand over completed units to the respective homebuyers by September 2020, with a delayed penalty of 6%. It has also been provided that if possession is not given by September, the homebuyers shall be at liberty to seek refund of the total deposited amount.
