Letters: Business interests trump neighborhoods

11:01 PM, Apr. 7, 2013  |  Comments

Dear NeighborWorks and the Northwestern

What hypocrites are you? Do you really think that you can convince people that an organized neighborhood can improve or stop anything that the businesses and the city decide? Don't waste your time. The neighbors in the area of the "rammed-down-our-throat " CVS store on Ninth Avenue may not have been "organized", but they got to know each other pretty well at the meetings and were about 90 percent against the store at that location, to the detriment of the neighborhood. Even the traffic studies and alterations showed it to be a bad idea, but it seems that it is happening anyway. Obviously, when someone shows up with money and a so-called need and promise of jobs, it does not make any difference what neighbors (or common sense) think. Don't get snowed by fancy names or meetings that you don't have time for anyway. Just go out and make friends with your neighbors. The city will do what it wants.
