I'm not a neighbor, but as a west side resident see a huge missed opportunity for a ground-floor full-service grocer 🙁

Anyone is allowed to speak at the meeting, you should attend tonight and make your voice heard.

Since it’s the heights. This meeting should have been held at either #25 or #27 school. How do the heights residents get there ? No 82 bus service from Summit Avenue. Don’t want to walk to Palisade Avenue for the #86 or the Newport Immy. Use there heads! Anything to make it hard for people to get to. Do the meeting again at a local neighborhood school.

We are referring to the zoning board meetings that are held at City Hall. That meeting is tonight at 6:30pm (11/15). The only other meetings were arranged by Councilman Yun.

I think this is where we used to but our Christmas trees! Tippies
