Members of the Lower Lonsdale Business Association are involved with attending a wide variety of information and city council meetings about various aspects of things that affect the Lower Lonsdale community. They have been tirelessly consistent in making sure the issue had representation and are very well known in the community for taking the time to be involved. Here are some examples of comments they have made before city council:
The existing site development is a relic of the 1950s, when little concern was given to the environmental issues that are such a priority today. At a Planning Commission presentation the one redeeming feature worth preservation noted in the Commission Resolutions is the Safeway sign that corners 13th Street and Lonsdale. There is no project that is perfect. Everything could be done a little better.
