CarMax Petition Pizza & Petitions Party in Pleasant Hill Aug 26th


CarMax Petition Pizza & Petitions Party:

Mountain Mike’s Pizza
30 Golf Club Rd, Pleasant Hill
Saturday, August 26th, 2017
12:00 – 2:00pm | Free

ALL current and new volunteers are invited to a Pizza & Petitions Party. We will have pizza, campaign updates, and petitions to sign and circulate.

Concerned Pleasant Hill residents have launched a petition to challenge the City’s ordinance approving the controversial CarMax project at DVC Plaza. They also want the City to know that the community supports new housing and neighborhood retail at the former Kmart site.
“We call on the City and the property owner to work with us to develop housing and neighborhood retail at DVC Plaza. Because that site is surrounded by residential neighborhoods, schools, and a creek, we believe it is not appropriate for a wholesale used car auction operation like CarMax,” said Cathy Teegardin, a Pleasant Hill resident and President of Pleasant Hill Alliance of Neighborhoods (PHAN).

    Personally I think that would be a good place for a library. PH has one on its southern border that sucks and the second closest is either Martinez or Concord.

    Housing and retail? I thought the public was concerned about traffic – housing and retail will generate a ton more traffic then CarMax. Are they forgetting that this used to be retail and that went out of business? This is a private property that the City would have to purchase for the construction of the library – they are getting the land for free on Oak Park.

    CarMax would be a great addition to Pleasant Hill in this location. DVC is a COMMUNITY College. Students are not coming from all over the country to go to school here. Most of the students are still sleeping under their parents roof. CarMax will bring much needed positive development in a blighted area. I see no mention of CarMax being a bad neighbor at any of their other locations. They seem to run a clean, well lighted business until 9pm. Just go take a look at what goes on there now and we should run off a clean safe development of the property?
