Why Burbank is holding an apparent narrow-minded stance is beyond me and I have started wondering if the large chains, specifically Vons/Safeway, are using scare tactics in the surrounding neighborhoods to keep Whole Foods out. What are we really afraid of?
There is a perfect demographic in Burbank for a Whole Foods Market and our city can support all retailers — Albertson's, Ralphs, Vons and Trader Joe's.
For logical residents of Burbank, this can only benefit all — the city, the neighborhood, the residents themselves.
Thanks for listening to us about market
As a member of the group that is opposed to the proposed project at the corner of Alameda Avenue and Main Street, we offer a heartfelt and public thank you to the City Council for showing incredible patience and fortitude in allowing both sides to speak their mind into the early morning hours.
Thank you for sticking with us and showing great integrity by allowing all of us to speak. We appreciate that the council realizes that this is not a popularity contest.
Please let Whole Foods come to town
I have lived my whole life in Burbank — 67 years. It's the greatest city ever. I raised my three kids here.
There have been times when I've been upset over some of the decisions that have been made. It took forever to get the mall and the town center. Look what they have done for our city. I finally have places to eat and do not have to go to Glendale. I prefer to spend my money in my own town.
There are lots of things that go on in neighborhoods across this town that people do not like. So what. Deal with it. I live in the Horace Mann Elementary section. I was not happy when they took the most beautiful, newest school in town and turned it into a day-care center. We have a lot of traffic from this mistake. But most of us have learned to deal with it.
