"What This Neighborhood Needs..."

You fill in the blanks as the City of Lafayette extends a unique opportunity for residents to have a say in what sort of business comes to town.


Bakery? Boutique? Baby Clothes? Blacksmith's shop? Well, probably not the latter -- all that clanging and whinnying -- but The Forge in Lafayette has a vacancy and city leaders would like some input from locals about what they'd like to see go in there.

The Forge, as you know, is one of the city's most unique properties. It's located at Brown Avenue and Mt. Diablo Blvd, 3416 Mt. Diablo Blvd. to be precise, and enjoys proximity to neighbors like , , and .

What do you think the neighborhood needs? Remember, it should fit in with the surrounding businesses. Post your ideas in the comments thread. City planners will be reading your ideas and, perhaps, basing future invitations to established businesses based on your suggestions.

A record store. You know 78, 45, 33. "Don't Cry Out Loud" or "I'll Never Love This Way Again" on 8-tracks. And some blank reel-to-reels for my stereo cabinet. If they carried some Polaroid film that would be great, too.
