Over the past several weeks Chatham residents told EZ Pawn No. They told Richard Milburn Alternative High School No. These actions have caused some to feel that saying NO is counterproductive to the growth of the community. When Lakeview, Beverly, or Rodgers Park say NO its Ok. Others say Chatham residents do not know what they want and are "fickle". But what I have found is most residents want business and services that offer first class products and world class service.
So here is what I propose. Here is a partial working list that will be submitted to Roderick Sawyer, Alderman of the 6th ward.
As a resident of the 6th ward I would like to see the following businesses come into our ward:
Panera Bread Co. http://www.panerabread.com/about/contact/index2.php
Golden Corral http://www.goldencorral.com/
So what do you want to see on this list? Are you willing to let the retailers know you want them in your neighborhood?
