Signature Point homes being built
Construction is starting on four houses that have been sold in the Signature Point area of the Kissing Camels gated community, with infrastructure being readied on the others.
The project is by the Garden of the Gods Club LLC (an entity of the Sunrise Company, which bought Kissing Camels in 2007).
Featuring a location bordering the ninth fairway of the community's golf course, Signature Point was approved by the city last November, with 17 lots in all near Kissing Camels Drive. Each of the homes will be one-story, built with a customizable Sunrise floor plan, according to Jackie Gebert of the Garden of the Club's sales office.
An 18th home is slated to be built in close proximity, in the style of the existing Courtyards development, she added.
The Signature Point area had consisted of summer cottages built in the 1960s, some of which were showing their age. They were demolished last winter.

Kindie musician at MAT
In an extension of its Ice Cream Theatre series, the Millibo Art Theatre, 1367 Pecan St., will host national “Kindie” musician Steve Weeks Thursday to Sunday, July 26-29.
The concerts will be 7 p.m. nightly. Kindie is the name given to a musical genre that appeals to children but in a non-saccharine sort of way. For example, according to Weeks' website, one song is about a dandelion that wants to be considered a flower instead of a weed, and another is about a boy who doesn't want to take a bath. Musical styles include bluegrass, rock, folk-hop, and reggae.
Also at MAT, an encore show of “Babette's Cabaret” has been scheduled July 28 at 9 p.m.
For price information, call 465-6321 or go to themat.org.
