Am i actually reading correctly? Are people saying they want a McDonald's? Prefer a McDonald's!! At the old Stickeys Restaurant site (boy did they have some characters working there!) there are plans for a 22-28 unit condo with ground floor retail (separate site from the McDonald's proposal). This would help take our prime driving street, a gateway to Teaneck, and begin what all people agree is sorely needed upgrading.
All of a sudden, once word gets a around that progress is on the way, come a homeowners association opposed to the plans. Why? NIMBY! The Shepard Avenue residents claim traffic amongst many other complaints (exact quote from resident "are you gong to allow pedophiles to live there"). While these neighbors should definitely be part of the process, and I was told that meeting were conducted with the developers, how does the TCCP get involved? Seems like we are getting played again with hype. Discrimination? Discrimination is the strong concentration of nail salons, liquor stores and auto repair shops that the neighborhood is forced to live amongst. A 22 unit condo on a major township corridor ripe for a commuter dream- i don't think so! (and how much traffic will 22 units, deisgned for commutters, create on Shepard?)
Just wait until the Northeast gets hit with the largest tax increase! Who will help them- Bill Moring?
