  1. Wow, those businesses have been hit hard recently, sympathy for the owners.

    Also these issues with traffic will continue to get worse with all the new low income housing being built next door, there was no traffic or street accommodations for the influx of vehicles in an already dangerous. congested traffic area.

  2. There is a car that parks in front of the building that blocks the view of the on coming traffic from the south on 101. Was that the issue?
