It would be a shame to lose this corner store.

    You nosey ass people should stay out of other people’s business. The property owners will decide what’s best for them. You want to help pay some of the renovation costs?….. I didnt think so so GTFO you hippie scum.

    I’ll pay some of the renovation costs. But you have to stop insulting people who are only trying to protect and preserve what is left of the city they love. You may not love the city, and/or you may have an interest in seeing buildings torn down without proper review, but you have no call to insult people.
