great interview john & isabel! keep up the good work! i have really enjoyed these interviews as a way to get to know the council candidates better. john already knows where i differ with him. i do like john’s team concept to advocate for city redevelopment & other issues (projects) with citizens & city staff. but please, please, please be sure not to leave via verde out. i think the surveys are a great start to get more citizen input too. most residents of via verde are not personally notified about projects that would be of interest to them. i think the postings on the bulletin board at via verde vons are insufficient notification. especially since a lot of via verde residents are no longer shopping down there. btw: thank john for the red geraniums downtown instead of the ugly yucca plants! i think the red flowers are just the right accent color to liven up the place! enjoyed them when i walked thru the courtyard from rear parking to the eye doctors! the tiny white tree lights along bonita are nice too. we do love the san dimas mansion & just had a wonderful scottish meal there on the 15th. the san dimas mansion is one of our favorite places in town! maybe the pioneer square project & a renovated lemon packing house will join our favorites list in the near future.

Thanks for your comments, BJ! I, like you, have a great appreciation for our downtown and look forward to what is to come. And I also don’t want to leave Via Verde out. I have an upcoming episode featuring a business from Via Verde, but if you have any other ideas for my podcast, let me know! Best, Isabel
