Here are the results of  “Please no more nail salons or real estate offices!” Then what do we want?

Most of us agree that the Waldbaums shopping center needs to be reconfigured. Ideas such as an Aquarium and Marina suggests bayside development. (oh, does it need to be developed).

  • We need a better city planner (straight to the point)
  • A Marina
  • Large City Square in place of the Waldbaums center / Turn Waldbaums into a City Center
  • Small Nature Park and dog run between Lafayette & Lauralton
  • More Benches @ Kennedy Plaza
  • Game Tables @ Kennedy Plaza

WHAT WE DON’T WANT:

  • No more cell phone stores.
  • No more franchises
  • One person really doesn’t want a bait shop.

  1. A good Steak House
    A good Seafood Restaurant
    A UP-Scale restaurant where people can dress up on a weekend night and have a real good mean with good service and without the nasty attitudes, and Pleeezze don’t tell me that we have the Hotel.
    They don’t fit into any of my above criteria.

  2. since eastbay diner in oceanside closed
    several yrs ago we could use a real 24 hour diner with juck box and the works..it could be on long beach rd where kfc and mcdonalds are..the beachburger and laurel and avenue are not diners, sorry..just over the bridge in IP they’re building a king kullen but a diner would be great there..anyone want to invest deli duo,cheeseburger delux, open turkey sandwich, breakfast all day
