strip mall. Well I'm here to say, "Enough is Enough!"
I think we as a community have a right to say what kind of businesses
can go in our town, or at least let people know what we would like to
have go in as a business. We have enough salons, cleaners, tutoring
schools, dental offices, etc. We need a nice restaurant that we can go
with friends and family that serves a California cuisine.
For example, Marie Callender's, Black Angus, even a Denny's. We use to
have an old-fashioned coffee shop, Delrods, but now we don't even have
that anymore. I realize that you have to have plenty of room for parking,
but look at Dominicks Restaurant, they have hardly any parking. I'm sure
there must be sone kind of coffee shop or restaurant that could go into
some of these smaller areas too.
The reason I am bringing this up now is that I know there is an empty
lot on the corner of Rosemont Avenue and Foothill Boulevard, as well as
right down the street next to the real estate office that are fenced in.
I'm not sure if they have already been committed to something, but if
not, let's put a restaurant there. The other place is Vons market on the
corner of Pennsylvania Avenue, they are moving over to the bowling alley
lot, and the lot where they are now is up for lease, so lets vote on some
sort of restaurant!
I'm sure you are like me and don't want anymore strip malls here. I
worked on the billboard committee years ago to pass the law so no more
billboards will go up, lets work on stopping more strip malls, but
bringing in restaurants. We at least should have a chance to say what we
want to move in here, after all this is our town.
