CommUNITY Feedback from the May 9th eNews:  

Riviera Beach Planning and Zoning voted 4-3 opposing the proposed 7-11 Project  What do you think about this issue?  .


From Toni A - Sugar Sands: I oppose the 7-11 if it's located at 2600 Broadway. We already have a gas station and a Walgreens on that corner. We do not need more of the same at that intersection. However, I don't object to 7-11 in general; elsewhere on Broadway would be good. There are several lots available to the north and south of Blue Heron.


From Carl W. - blue heron/rt 1  -  There are few businesses that would be suitable for the corner.  Its use as presented seems to be a good match


From Carmine A - I am opposed to putting a 7-11 at that location

QUESTION: How about "our" Ocean Mall? 

From Fern680 -  when is this mall expecting to have some tenants ???    


Neighbors: PLEASE let our CRA know how "you" feel about OUR Ocean Mall: follow this link to contact our RB CRA


 ...Together we WILL make a positive difference!
