Here's an idea...

Maybe the people at Comerica Bank will have an idea of how to fix the Fair Oaks construction debacle. Just look at how beautifully they restored our historic building on the corner of Fair Oaks and Mission. (Rosettes and all!)

Seriously! It is so wrong how this "project" is being handled...

Keep on this, Laurie. I really appreciate your Patch article on the subject. I am a business owner on Fair Oaks.

And what is the purpose of eliminating lanes, particularly right turn lanes, on east/west streets? How will this relieve traffic in the Fair Oaks corridor?

These changes won't do much to relieve congestion. They will make for a more attractive street using funds that were supposed to be for relieving congestion.

I have yet to see the Comerica Bank up close and personal...nice shot Laurie!!! Hopefully, the Fair Oaks construction will be over quickly...afterall, if they're doing it all at once, it shouldn't drag out forever!!!

I need to come to South Pas for something and I sure wish it wasn't on Fair Oaks. I may see if I can find it in the Inland Empire instead.

Sort of kidding, sort of not.

Where are you going, Petrea? I'll tell you the secret routes. ;-)

WV: (actually can't type it because it has a variation of the F-word in it.)

I'll email you.

Missed you guys at the blogger picnic yesterday. We talked about you behind your backs and said nice things.

Mister Earl said...

That's why we didn't go. We wanted you to talk about us.

What were some of the most interesting dishes? (Foodwise.)

Petrea said...

Desiree brought some kind of dessert concoction. Susan C. brought her famous sangria. The other Susan C brought an excellent pasta salad. Other than that, there were a lot of sweets.

You guys have picnics? Cool!

We were supposed to go to a baby shower but ended up sick and at home. Again. Sounds like the picnic was fun.

Green Guy, I've never been to one of the famous picnics. But I can vouch for our happy hours. It's been way too long since we've gathered for one of those.
