Here are some of the 46 comments the survey received.

–“It’s a small neighborhood area letting a big, and I MEAN BIG, chain come in. That sucks. But if it’s going to happen, then PLEASE let the hours that liquor can be sold cut off at a certain time, like 10 PM or 11 PM as opposed to 2 AM.”

–“The neighborhood would be better served by a business such as the one that intended to move in – Fresh & Easy. Although they are not an option now, a smaller grocery or food boutique would be better for the residents.”

–“A CVS on Melrose may help out other businesses. I am not sure it is fair to put conditions and limits on this store and not others who sell liquor as they also bring in the negative elements into the neighborhood. CVS sells other items that neighbors and merchants may need, for this reason I am okay with bring in this store.”

–“I feel that without fully restricting the sales of alcohol the community will be impacted with the negative effects of intoxicated individuals, especially transients, that will result in an increase of incidents that require additional police attention. This location is too close to an elementary school and park (both children and family oriented).”

–“We could use a cvs!! I wholeheartedly support this and think it unfortunate that homeowners would not want a great business we can walk to in the neighborhood just because of the alcohol sales. We have no where to go in walking distance to buy milk or eggs in our neighborhood. I hope The neighborhood associations do not fight this because of fear about the perceived increase in transient issues. This is an ideal vendor in an ideal and central location for outr community. Please see the upside potential of convenience for the community. The space is an eyesore and has been empty long enough. We really need this store. I drive to the cvs on vine in order to go to cvs — fighting this is short sighted and smacks of nimby fearmongering/“

–“There is no need for these types of stores in this area. To many CVS type stores already exist why here. Also I do no support large businesses here especially retail of this kind, kills the neighbourhood feel of small scale local retail. This will bring neighbourhood down.”
