Important meeting on Trader Joe's next Monday

From our Duboce Triangle neighbors:

You have probably heard about the Trader Joe's store which is proposed for the Market & Noe Center, in the space formerly occupied by Tower Records and Video. This proposed project has profound implications and would change our neighborhood—for better or worse (or probably both)—for decades to come. We want you and as many of our neighbors as possible to learn about the project, so that you can weigh in during the public process the project will go through.

The proposed Trader Joe's will be the main agenda item at our upcoming General Meeting on Monday, February 14, from 7 to 9 pm. Our meetings are held at CPMC Davies Hospital, Castro St. & Duboce Ave., in the Auditorium which is on Level "B". I know it's Valentine's Day, but I hope you'll consider attending. We'll have refreshments (including wine and chocolates) available for your enjoyment.

Trader Joe's will present their plans publicly for the first time, and DTNA will discuss our analysis of the project as we understand it, along with information on some of the ways the proposed store would impact our neighborhood. We believe that this project will have a greater impact on the Duboce Triangle than any other development project we have seen to date. If you live, work, or own property in this neighborhood, I strongly encourage you to come and be informed as to the benefits and impacts of this project.

Come at 7 pm to meet your neighbors and enjoy some refresments. The meeting agenda will begin at 7:30. The DTNA Board and I hope to see you there!

Very truly yours,

Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association
