Looking forward to bank development

Dear Editor,

Regarding the property that is in process for development on the west side of Grand Avenue between Safeway and Park Drive, I would like to say that I am looking forward to completion of this project. I walk by this property often and the existing hedge that borders the sidewalk has been unruly and difficult to walk by, especially in the summer, for years. In addition, trash and big mounds of dirt collect in this area, giving it the appearance of a dump. It is an eyesore and dangerous to say the least.

Weststar Bank has plans for a beautifully landscaped area and well designed building. The plans also attempt to keep as many of the beautiful trees as possible that currently exist on the property. The alternative could be another 24-hour convenience store with 24-hour traffic. I believe the bank will be a welcome and beautifying addition to our area. After all, this is commercial property, and a bank seems to be the most conducive to a residential area.

Try considering a BYPASS within 10 feet of your backyard. Now that is a problem!!!
