original. It is basically isolated on an island between NBC and the
Acapulco Restaurant. When I heard about all the hoops city officials
wanted the owner of Dimples to jump through to move his restaurant, I
I'm glad to see that a compromise was reached. Secondly, I think
the Burbank resident that has a problem with the Dimples move should
instead redirect her angst toward the City Council for allowing the
Platt project to go forward. This will increase traffic -- as
compared to Dimples. It's the same story the world over: Big

Dimples isn't the mob moving in
This is in response to Linda Matsumoto's challenge of the City

("Dimples move gets challenged," Wednesday). She states that her
attorney, Phil Berlin, says "the neighborhood will be overrun with
cars, noise and illegal activities" and that the decision "sets a

This is the same business that Sal Ferraro has operated for more
than 20 years, but now that he is forced to move it a bit closer to
your part of the world, you come up with all of these wild ideas of

the move of Dimples to the old Chadney's restaurant site. The current
council never seems to have the residents' concerns in mind when they
approve any type of action.
Just look at the project going in where Dimples currently holds
court. I believe all residential concerns with Dimples will vanish
once the new projects begin construction, and if NBC's plan to sell
off part of their property goes through, the amount of traffic
congestion will eternally gridlock that area and no one will choose
to venture over that way. Hang in there Media-area residents.
